Gorilla Glass is something that isn't really talked of often, it has blended right into the backgrounds of our lives, living on millions of smartphones across the world. Corning has just announced the latest version; Gorilla Glass 4.
The new cover material is meant to survive large drops onto very rough surfaces, like concrete. Most soda-lime glass will shatter if its dropped from a decent height, but Corning says that Gorilla Glass 4 should remain unshattered up to 80% of the time. Corning has said that it is already sending out test samples and shipments of Gorilla Glass 4, but didn't reveal which companies its working with just yet.
You can be assured this will be something we'll hear more about, and which devices will have it, at CES 2015 in just six weeks time.
