Gorilla Glass 6: How Much It Will Protect Our Smartphone?

Gorilla Glass 6, a new unbreakable smartphone protector glass manufactured by a us Glass manufacturer company, Corning. According to Corning it will work 2x better then their previous version gorilla glass, Gorilla Glass 5. If we talk about the Gorilla Glass 5, it came with the Samsung Galaxy S9, iPhone X or many other flagship phones.

According to the Corning, in lab tests this Gorilla Glass survived 15 drops from 1 meter onto rough surfaces. After tasting from different stage they told us it will be anti-scratch Glass. But after experience we can tell it is completely anti-scratched or not.

Manufacture Of Gorilla Glass 6

If we talk about the manufacturing of Gorilla Glasses molten alkaline, potassium salt and sodium ions etc. raw material is used.

During its manufacture, the glass is toughened by ion exchange. The material is immersed in a molten alkaline, potassium salt at a temperature of approximately 400 °C. Wherein smaller sodium ions in the glass are replaced by larger potassium ions from the salt bath. The larger ions occupy more volume and thereby create a surface layer of high residual compressive stress giving the glass surface increased strength, ability to contain flaws, and overall crack-resistance.

First Corning Gorilla Glass was lunched in 2007. There are total 7 version Corning Gorilla Glass available. The Gorilla Glass 6 was lunched in July, 2018. Gorilla Glass is not only for mobiles this glass is used smartwatches also.

According to Corning the Gorilla Glass 6 is non-scratch and non broken. We should not completely believe on this statement because it was tasted on the in a lab and in a safe environment but our phone can be fall from more then 1 meter and into a rock or anywhere. And if we talk about the non-scratch it also not completely ant-scratch because a Sand particle can make scratch on it.

After using it on our mobiles we can more about it. I hope we will experience a better glass on our mobile phones.


Corning said “As consumers become more dependent on their smartphones, the opportunity for potentially damaging drops is also on the rise. Now more than ever, it’s critical that the cover glass provides outstanding protection.”

The vice president and general manager of Corning Gorilla Glass said “Corning “Gorilla Glass 6″ improves upon Gorilla Glass 5 by surviving drops from higher heights, but more importantly, has been engineered to survive multiple drops.
