Corning has unveiled Gorilla Glass SR+, a breakthrough glass composite that delivers an unparalleled combination of toughness, scratch resistance and optical clarity for wearable devices.

With rigorous daily activity, consumers put their wearable devices to the test, leaving them exposed to damage. To overcome the challenges facing the screens on these devices, Corning scientists developed a new glass composite engineered to better endure the bumps, knocks and scrapes wearables encounter while maintaining the optical clarity and touch sensitivity required for on-the-go connectivity.

In lab tests, Corning Gorilla Glass SR+ demonstrated superior scratch resistance approaching that of alternative luxury cover materials, while delivering up to 70 percent better damage resistance against impacts and 25 percent better surface reflection than those alternative materials. Such step improvements in optical performance enable longer battery life and improved outdoor readability.

“In early 2015, Corning launched Project Phire with the goal of engineering glass-based solutions with the scratch resistance approaching luxury cover materials, combined with the superior damage resistance of Gorilla Glass,” said Scott Forester, director, innovation products, Corning Gorilla Glass. “Corning Gorilla Glass SR+ delivers a superior combination of properties that is not available in any other material today – it is in a class of its own.”

Corning Gorilla Glass SR+ is commercially available and is expected to be on product models from leading global brands later this year.

Who's the idiot that keeps telling these companies to go thinner?? Thinner glass will not make it stronger.

Tell that to coins that are thinner than phones that can't bend by human hands.

Solid metal isn't glass...

I bought that up because coins are thinner and made out of metal like phones just to make a point.
