Corning set to debut Gorilla Glass 3 at CES 2013

The latest Gorilla Glass glass composite from American company Corning will be showcased at CES 2013 in Las Vegas next week

 

The latest iteration of Corning's glass composite is, according to the manufacturer, three times tougher than the previous generation used in the likes of the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3.

The company will also be using the Consumer Electronics Show to reveal its latest fibre optic technology for device-to-device connectivity.

“These new innovations build on the increasingly important and continually evolving role of highly engineered glass technologies in delivering improved product performance and functionality through touch capabilities, protective cover glass, and device connectivity,” said Wendell P. Weeks, chairman, CEO and president of Corning in a statement on the company's website.

Gorllia Glass 3 will reportedly show 40 per cent less scratches than the earlier version and boast 50 per cent better shock resistance.

Currently Gorilla Glass is the go-to material for premium smartphone and tablet displays. The glass undergoes a chemical strengthening process where potassium ions are compressed into a layer onto the surface to create stronger durability.

The new version of Gorilla Glass is just one more thing we've got to look forward to at CES next week. For more information on the show, check out our round up of the top CES 2013 rumours, leaks and updates.
