Gorilla Glass 5 helps prevent phone smashes

New York glass maker Corning has unveiled the latest iteration of Gorilla Glass, which the company claims is four times as likely to survive a fall from waist or shoulder height as its competitors.

Gorilla Glass 5 remains intact after falls from 1.5 metres approximately 80 per cent of the time, Corning says.

The company's Gorilla Glass products have been used in 4.5 billion devices since 2007, including products from Samsung, Apple, Motorola, LG, Hewlett-Packard and others, according to its website.
