Corning Gorilla Glass 3LAS VEGAS, USA – Corning demonstrated, at the recently concluded CES trade show, a Gorilla-Glass-3-covered phone emerge from a 130-gram metal ball drop without smashing into pieces or even getting a scratch.

The Corning Gorilla Glass 3 is designed to withstand deep scratches and crags in the glass. The manufacturer’s native damage resistance (NDR) technology uses completely new glass composition with durability enhancements developed at the structural level of the glass.

Gorilla glass debuted with the first-generation iPhone in 2007 and is now being used for over one billion devices, and more than 33 brands.

The second-generation Gorilla Glass made the original thinner at the same level of resistance. The third-generation claims to be significantly better than its predecessor by adding three-times better scratch resistance and by being 50% stronger.

Corning is ramping up production of the GG3 in the first quarter of 2013, which is expected to find its way into the iPhone 6 and other devices slated for launch this year.
