Corning launches newest Gorilla Glass version --- Gorilla Glass 5

In a recent announcement, Corning has revealed that it is launching the latest flagship version of its Gorilla Glass cover glass line for mobile devices --- Gorilla Glass 5.

Announcing the launch of Gorilla Glass 5, Corning said that the new Gorilla Glass version, like its predecessors, takes cover glass technology to new heights. It specifically offers unmatched protection to screens of mobile devices against everyday drops onto rough surfaces.

Highlighting the fact that Gorilla Glass 5 marks a noteworthy extension of Corning's advantage in drop performance over competitive glasses, Corning said that the new cover glass managed to survive up to 80 percent of the time during testing, when dropped face down from 1.6 meters.

Moreover, along with offering unmatched drop protection to mobile devices, Gorilla Glass 5 also provides the damage resistance, optical clarity, and touch sensitivity which has long been associated with the Corning brand.

In touting the new breakthroughs offered by Gorilla Glass 5 in offering protection against drops, Corning Gorilla Glass VP and General Manager John Bayne drew attention to Corning’s “165-year history of delivering life-changing innovations,” and said: “Gorilla Glass 5 is the latest example of Corning applying its material-science expertise to solve tough consumer challenges in a way that impacts people's everyday lives.”
