Since we first heard of the technology a couple of years back, Gorilla Glass has been one of the most used piece of equipment on a majority of mobile devices whether they are in the shape of a smartphone, a mixed breed phablet and a full fledged Tablet computer. Gorilla Glass has remained in the spotlight ever since and has been utilized by a number of OEM’s specially Samsung and HTC. Till now we have witnessed two variants in the Gorilla Glass series and now it seems that a third one’s up for grabs pretty soon. Corning, the company (and the brains) behind this hardened glass peripheral, have now come up with Gorilla Glass 3, the latest version in their successful series of durable screens.
According to some early reports, the new glass is three times more scratch resistant then its predecessor and the company claims that there would be a 40 percent reduction in the overall scratches which were previously seen with the naked eye. According to an official press release, Corning plans to introduce two new products at CES 2013 next week, the new glass composition with durability enhancements, and Optical Cables by Corning, fiber-based, device-to-device connectivity solutions that significantly extend the data transmission range past the limits of copper-based cables.
