The people behind the most robust glass for electronic devices, Corning Gorilla, has just announced that their newest product – Corning Gorilla Glass 6– will be first adopted by the Chinese smartphone maker Oppo in their upcoming flagship phone. The Corning Gorilla Glass 6, introduced in July, is the company’s most durable cover glass to date. The new Corning Gorilla Glass 6 is said to be two times stronger than its predecessor and is Corning’s most durable cover glass to date. Claimed to withstand as many as 15 drops at the height of 1 meter, the glass can guard the phone against accidental slips or falls.
