The latest Gorilla Glass 6 was launched two weeks ago. According to the company, the new iteration of the glass is two times tougher than the predecessor Gorilla Glass 5. The company also says that Oppo will be the first one to implement their latest Gen Gorilla Glass, the Gorilla Glass 6. Corning also says that more smartphone manufacturers are also working with them to have the advantage of the Gorilla Glass 6 into their phones too.
How strong is Gorilla Glass 6? It can survive 15 drops from a height of 1 meter. That is the same height from where usually a phone is dropped accidentally and is also more pressure resistant than its predecessor. The reason why it can do so is due to an entirely new chemical composition, according to Corning
The Gorilla Glass 6 is said to be two times more durable than its Gorilla Glass 5 predecessor. This means that the material can survive 15 drops from 1 meter and it’s considerably more resistant to pressure. The results are achieved thanks to an entirely new chemical composition.
Oppo R17, the next Oppo Flagship could be the smartphone rocking the Gorilla Glass 6, since we saw Gorilla Glass 5 on Find X and R15.
