Corning Gorilla Glass 5, the latest smartphone guard
New Delhi: Gorilla Glass 5, the latest product from Corning, claims to do the damage control on 80 per cent occasion when a device is dropped from a height of 1.6 metres.
Successor to Corning Gorilla Glass 4, the new glass from the company can save smartphone devices even if they fell on rough surfaces from waist height to shoulder height.
"What will define the performance of the overall device on those types of corner drops is stiffness of the phone design, but also how the glass is packaged. Much of this is dependent on what's known as the 'proudness' of the glass, which refers to how high above the phone the glass sits," The Verge quoted John Bayne, Corning's Vice President and General Manager, as saying.
