Corning has announced its new version of Gorilla Glass, Gorilla Glass 6. As you might expect, everything is bigger and better this time around, which means that Gorilla Glass 6 is roughly two times better at surviving drops from 1-meter than its predecessor. "This enables Gorilla Glass 6 to be more resistant to damage", said Dr. Jaymin Amin, vice-president of technology and product development, Corning Gorilla Glass and Corning Specialty Materials. The added compression helps increase, on average, the likelihood of survival through multiple drop events, it said.

According to the recent study, people drop their phones about seven times a year, with over 50 percent of those drops happening from one meter or below. In their latest product, the scientists have chemically strengthened the glass to allow for more compression to tackle this problem of multiple drops.

In addition to traditional designs, Gorilla Glass 6 phones can come in reflective colors, and Corning is also working on a translucent glass that shows you the phone's insides as well. Corilla Glass 6 has been formulated to deliver "unprecedented protection against multiple drops", an all-too-common accident faced by smart device owners, often needing pricy repairs. These designs are providing new features and applications for consumers, such as enhanced wireless charging, larger screen sizes with smaller bezels, and customization through printed glass backs. Corning Gorilla Glass 6 mitigates this phenomenon.

Gorilla Glass 6 is expected to begin appearing on devices within the next few months. Scratch resistance qualities remain unchanged compared to Gorilla Glass 5.

But part of the problem with newer versions of GG is that they've allowed manufacturers to make their displays thinner, as opposed to keeping them at the same thickness and improving the overall problem. The first phones with the material will hit the market later this year.
