Gorilla Glass which we all know that, it's very hard for it screen to break unlike other smartphones screen. Corning are the manufacturers of Gorilla Glass and they have revealed Gorilla Glass 5, the latest generation of its glass panels that will end up in millions of upcoming smartphones. The latest generation of "Gorilla Glass 5" will be more resistant to shattering, even from heights of 1.6 meters, or around shoulder height, onto hard surfaces in up to 80 percent of cases.

Vice President and General Manager, Corning Gorilla Glass John Bayne talked about the Gorilla Glass 5 below;

 “With each successive generation of Corning Gorilla Glass, we have taken cover glass technology to new levels. Gorilla Glass 5 is no exception, extending Corning’s advantage in drop performance over competitive glasses,” “With many real-world drops occurring from between waist and shoulder height, we knew improving drop performance would be an important and necessary advancement.” 

And with the upcoming release of the Galaxy Note 7 and iPhone 7, the timing of this announcement makes it clear that we can expect Gorilla Glass 5 to make its way into new flagships very soon.
