You are the types who always do drop the phone or the #smartphone on the ground, and what do they break one a week? Well, the #future of smartphones has also thought of you, given that the next mobile phones will have a practically indestructible screen.
The change is due to the new smartphone glass just launched by Corning, which promises to resist drops of up to one meter and 60 centimeters in height. Is called Gorilla Glass 5, and soon we can test it. On the other hand, recent research claimed that 85 percent of smartphone owners have dropped their phone at least once in a year. Who hasn't happened to?
"In real life, a mobile phone usually falls from a stature between the waist and the shoulders," explained John Bayne, the vice president of Corning, in explaining why such a screen was made, capable of withstanding falls over a meter.
Gorilla Glass 5 is a glass that can withstand up to 80 percent of drops with the screen facing the ground. It will be on the market with the Galaxy Note 7, the new smartphone from Samsung, on sale from 2 September: it will be the first to be able to count on the super screen.
