Corning's Gorilla Glass now used in more than 1.5 billion devices

Behind the huge success of Samsung's Galaxy devices lies a secret - Gorilla Glass. Without it, we wouldn't be seeing Galaxies outlasting drop tests, and even hammer tests. The genius behind the glass is Corning, and today, the company has revealed that its technology can now be found on more than 1.5 billion devices. Of course, Corning deserves some credit.

Gorilla Glass made a huge impact in the industry, providing manufacturers with technology that can improve screen durability, image clarity, and touch performance, not to mention materials used that are both thin and tough. Moving forward, the company plans to continue innovating, taking on the success of its Gorilla Glass 3.

Corning says that its third generation Gorilla Glass has been updated with improved scratch resistance and durability. With regards to competition, Corning says that it is not intimidated with sapphire crystals, which is seen as a potential replacement to Gorilla Glass.

“Sapphire’s performance as a cover for high-end watches probably leads to the current speculation. But those covers are much smaller than a mobile phone and are two to three times thicker than Gorilla Glass," says James Steiner, a Senior Vice President of Specialty Materials at Corning. In one of our commonly accepted strength tests, sapphire breaks more easily than Gorilla Glass after the same simulated use. Additionally, sapphire’s cost and environmental hit are huge issues.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
