Corning Corporation is introducing the fifth generation of its dedicated glass cladding for gadgets with far-reaching promises
There aren’t many things that feel more heartbreaking than a new, nimble smart device with a screen that cracks or shatters to pieces from a blow or a small fall. We must admit that the latest smartphones and tablets tend to be tougher and more resistant than before to these unfortunate effects - but they still exist, and not just for users who are characterized by extreme carelessness.
In order to try to improve the situation once again, Corning Company is unveiling Gorilla Glass 5 - The tempered and toughened glass of the next generation, which promises to specifically treat this time the falls and crashes from challenging heights, which mimic the shoulder area or waist area of the average user.
In the company,Gorilla Glass They have more than 4.5 billion consumer devices worldwide, and are convinced that they can continue the huge success with the new model, which claims to survive in its entirety about 80 percent of the falls from a height of about 1.6 meters - this compared toGorilla Glass The current 4 is designed to survive falls from a height of up to one meter.
This is significant important news, but it is still not worth starting to plan a series of abuses on your next smart device - the company clarifies that the impressive feature is compatible with claddings with a thickness of 0.6 millimeters, while the various manufacturers will also offer claddings with a reduced thickness of 0.4 millimeters Unlocked A future that will boast about the use of glass Gorilla Glass 5 will necessarily be equally durable), as well as the data and the tests all refer to the face and cover drop down horizontally, while corner drops are not the same protective reality, especially in the devices that have a convex cladding that protrudes outside the rest of the device.
either way, Gorilla Glass 5 should be more rigid than any Gorilla Glass Which came before it - and is also 4 times harder than all the competing glass cladding glass on the market. Which may explain why the American manufacturer claims that 75 percent of the smart devices on the market are based on its products, with the expectation of this continued growth thanks to the new fifth version.
First devices with Gorilla Glass 5 are set to emerge on the market later in 2016, and while they probably won’t allow us to give up protective coverage completely - they will probably help further reduce the unfortunate (and costly) accident statistics in our technological environment.
