Gorilla Glass 3
The most recent development in Corning's Gorilla Glass technology for protecting mobile and computing device screens. Gorilla Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance was announced at CES 2013 as offering "enhanced scratch resistance, reduced scratch visibility and better retained strength once a scratch does occur" over previous generations of Gorilla Glass, according to Corning.
Corning touts Gorilla Glass 3 as being up to three times more damage resistant than Gorilla Glass 2 as well as being able to better resist deep scratches that tend to cause glass to break. Gorilla Glass 3 also offers chemically strengthened protection that makes the glass less brittle and much tougher than previous generations of Gorilla Glass.
