Gorilla Glass 3 due for CES unveiling

The third version of Gorilla Glass, the ultra tough gadget glass used for the majority of smartphones and tablets including the HTC One X, Nokia Lumia 920 and Samsung Galaxy S3, will be officially unveiled at CES 2013 in Las Vegas next week, with manufacturer Corning promising a tougher construction than ever before.

By improving the glass at a molecular level, and introducing a new proprietary feature known as Native Damage Resistance (NDR), Corning is claiming that Gorilla Glass 3 has a 50 per cent boost in retained strength once the glass becomes flawed. It should also have a three-fold improvement in stratch resistance and a 40 per cent reduction in the number of visible scratches.

Although in practice it's unlikely to stop your phone or tablet from shattering after a six-foot drop onto a concrete floor, but it should be far more resistant to scratches from the keys in your pocket.

No manufacturers have so far confirmed they will be using Gorilla Glass 3 in their 2013 products, but we expect Corning to make some announcements at CES 2013 next week. We'll be on hand to test out the new glass and see how it holds up under pressure.
