While Apple will likely be credited for making sapphire smartphone displays popular with the iPhone 6 later this year, it certainly isn’t the first cellphone maker to have used these super sturdy screens. In fact, we could just see a sapphire-screened smartphone from Kyocera before the next iPhone makes its debut.

The leaked image above shows the new Kyocera Brigadier, a new handset that’s said to be en route to Verizon.

Huawei Valiant

MetroPCS, the largest prepaid service in the U.S., has officially announced that it will carry Huawei’s latest ultra-affordable Android smartphone, the Valiant, which is available to purchase from the carrier’s website as from today.


mwc2013bug-coaBARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS — Cat isn’t normally known for its smartphones, but here at Mobile World Congress, the company has unveiled the new Cat B15 — a rugged, Android-powered device that’s almost begging for a good beating. Built from anodized aluminum and shock-absorbent rubber, the device will withstand drops onto concrete, as well as water, dust, and extreme temperatures.


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.

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.
