How often do you accidentally drop your phones in a year?
Well, research says that a person drops his phone at least once in a year. Consequences may be different if you do not have new shatterproof glass - Corning Gorilla® Glass® 5! Light yet strong enough to resist a fall of about 1.6 meters (that’s approximately from your shoulder height)
Corning’s important concern was the drop resistance which normally occurred from waist height or above!
To take you a few years behind, Corning's history of innovation ignited from manufacturing an encasement for Thomas Edison's incandescent lamp. Since then, they have penetrated the global market from phones, laptops, automobile windshields, wearable devices, touchscreen devices. Currently used in almost 4.5 billion devices, the Corning Gorilla® Glass® 5 is on the rise to penetrate the smartphone market in the world.
We call, watch videos, text on the go and the most epidemic of all - Selfies because of which our phones are bound to slip off damaging the display. But don't you worry, Corning has found a way out to make your mobile glass tougher than before.
So what's new with the Corning Gorilla® Glass® 5 from its Corning Gorilla® Glass® 4! Successfully enduring 21 times for the drop resistance, this screen from Corning has its own significance.
