Today, Corning announced in a press release that it will be showcasing the successor to the massively popular Gorilla Glass 2, the Gorilla Glass 3, at the upcoming CES in Las Vegas.
Corning’s Gorilla Glass series has been massively successful and is used in nearly every smartphone or tablet today including the Galaxy S series, iPhone, iPad and the HTC One series.
While Gorilla Glass is tough to scratch, it is not impossible to do so. According to Corning, Gorilla Glass 3 will be up to 3 times more resistant to scratches and will also reduce the visibility of scratches by 40%. Apart from this, Corning also states that even after Gorilla Glass 3 is damaged or has a major crack, it will still be 50% stronger than its previous versions.
Corning will be unveiling Gorilla Glass 3 at its booth in CES at Las Vegas on January 7th. The company expects Gorilla Glass 3 equipped devices by the middle of the year.
