Corning, famed makers of tough glass for smartphone displays, is planning on introducing a third version of its Gorilla Glass at next week’s CES.
In a press statement, or pre-show teaser rather, the company said that Gorilla Glass 3 will boast a new glass composition, with “durability enhancements.”
Well, you’d certainly hope that it wouldn’t be weaker than Gorilla Glass 2, anyway. Although funnily enough, a number of folks have been complaining on various forums we’ve seen about Gorilla Glass 2 not being quite as durable as the initial version.
If this is the case, then the new incarnation of Gorilla Glass will hopefully sort any issues.
Corning will also unveil new optical cables.
Wendell P. Weeks, chairman, CEO, and president of Corning, commented: “This year at CES, Corning will demonstrate its industry leadership in speciality glass and fibre optic technologies with the introduction of two products designed to enhance and extend the capabilities of consumers’ favourite devices.”
“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.”
