Corning released their 5th version of screen-protective glass. The new glass is designed to successfully protect the device screen dropped from 1,6m.

According to a internal research, 85% of smartphone users dropped their device at least once in the last year. In 2/3 cases, those drops happening from waist height to shoulder height.

Corning now makes glass as thin as 0.4mm, so smartphone OEMs that opt for thinner glass or go with more rigid smartphone designs may see different results.

Corning’s vice president and general manager John Bayne:

What will define the performance of the overall device on those types of corner drops is stiffness of the phone design, but also how the glass is packaged.

If it sits up really high, we call that a proud design. If it’s protected by the bezel of the design then, it’s – not proud. So if you have a device that has a proud design, that one wouldn’t perform as well as one that had a different design.¬†And as we go to 3D designs, the edge is more exposed … and you have to be sensitive to that.
