  • Gorilla Glass DX and DX+ for wearables unveiled they cut reflectivity by 75

Cornings scientists were able to engineer “an entirely new material” that would better survive multiple drops.

John Bayne, the general manager of Corning's Gorilla Glass business, talks up the company's newest technology, Gorilla Glass 6, during an event Wednesday in Sunnyvale, California. But with phones getting bigger and harder to hold, drop resistance is the new priority, and that's what Gorilla Glass 6 has been engineered for.

According to Corning, the average person drops their smartphone 7 times a year. Many complain that this could make the handset more fragile but with Corning's new glass solution, this concern could finally be addressed. In lab tests, Gorilla Glass 6 survived 15 drops from 1 meter onto rough surfaces, making it up to two times better than Gorilla Glass 5. The company also takes a dig at competitors using soda lime and aluminosilicate for display glass, saying that these glass compositions would likely fail after the first drop. "This enables Gorilla Glass 6 to be more resistant to damage", said Dr. Jaymin Amin, vice president of technology and product development, Corning Gorilla Glass and Corning Specialty Materials.

The new glass composition has been chemically strengthened to offer "higher levels of compression" than what was possible with the previous iteration of the product. "Moreover, with breaks during drops being a probabilistic event, the added compression helps increase, on average, the likelihood of survival through multiple drop events". It also performed better from higher distances than Gorilla Glass 5.

Corning said the new glass has entered production.

Corning's Gorilla Glass 6 should arrive on the market in devices within the "next several months".
