Corning says that Gorilla Glass 6 has been developed on a decade-long heritage of providing the "toughest glass accessible" for customer cellular glass apparatus. The business declared a current global Toluna customer research, which demonstrated that generally, individuals drop their device seven times annually, with over 50 percent of their drops happening at 1 meter or even under. To boost cover glass functionality, Corning scientists engineered and developed "an entirely new substance" to deal with the issue of numerous drops.
The provider states that in laboratory tests, Gorilla Glass 6 lived 15 drops from 1 meter on surfaces that are rough, and can be "around 2 times greater" than Gorilla Glass 5. Aggressive glass compositions like soda lime and aluminosilicate didn't survive the initial fall below precisely the exact same test requirements.
The way it is done is that the brand new glass has a chemical makeup that is distinct from Gorilla Glass 5. This new composition makes it simpler to increase levels of compression that, hence, "allowed Gorilla Glass 6 to become resistant to harm".

In regards to scratch resistance, Corning says that Gorilla Glass 6 will probably have exactly the identical amount of scratch resistance as its predecessor.
Lately, Corning notes in addition to bigger front screens with more surface space, mobile device manufacturers are embracing mobile designs with glass springs (for better or worse). According to the business, these layouts are supplying "new characteristics and software" for customers like wireless charging, bigger display sizes with smaller bezels, and personalization via printed glass springs. (It must be mentioned that linking bigger screen sizes together with the adoption of glass backside is a questionable concept, and personalization via published glass backs isn't currently supplied by device manufacturers )
Along with preventing fall height and fall frequency, the business claims that Gorilla Glass 6 has been also designed to fulfill the demands of contemporary (delicate ) designs which utilize glass for at least 85 percent of their enclosure.
Gorilla Glass 6 enhances upon Gorilla Glass 5 by living drops from greater heights, and it's been designed to survive multiple drops. According to Corning, this empowers Gorilla Glass 6 to become resistant to damage and helps the chance of survival via multiple drops.
Corning notes Gorilla Glass was designed to more than six billion devices by over 45 big brands. Gorilla Glass 6 is now being appraised by multiple customers, according to the organization. It is expected to reach the marketplace in"the upcoming several months"
