Galaxy-S4-scratch-test

The new Galaxy S4 is the first Samsung smartphone to boast Corning’s latest Gorilla Glass 3, which promises to be up to three times as scratch resistant as its predecessor. And according to its first scratch test, it does not disappoint — the Galaxy S4′s display is almost impossible to scratch.

Gorilla-Glass-3

Corning has today announced its third-generation Gorilla Glass, and as you’d expect, it’s significantly tougher than its predecessors. Gorilla Glass 3 boasts a new feature called Native Damage Resistance (NDR), which promises to provide three times the scratch resistance of Gorilla Glass 2. It’ll be on show at CES next week before making its way to the next generation of smartphones, tablets, and more.

It should come as no surprise that Samsung is inking deals to build an OLED display stronghold, considering OLED display revenues are expected to reach more than $20 billion by 2018. Teaming up with Corning, the makers of Gorilla Glass, Samsung plans to combine their OLED display expertise with Corning’s new Lotus Glass substrates. These new displays should then find their way into the next generation of Galaxy devices as well as TVs and more.


How do you make Corning Gorilla Glass Stronger? Not sure, but we’re going to see how next week at CES. Corning has announced its plans to unveil its Gorilla Glass 2 product, which I’m now calling King Kong Glass. Corning hasn’t given any specifics (saving those for CES) about what is new in this glass sequel, but I’m sure it’s going to be good. Corning revolutionized damage-resistant cover glass for consumer electronic devices and has been featured in more than 30 major brands. The Gorilla glass in my OG DROID has been scratched, dropped, and abused over and over — and that’s just from my 3 year old. It’s withstood many of drops, and I have complete faith in whatever future products they release.
