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.

New smartphone devices appearing in 2013 and 2014 are expected to employ Gorilla Glass 3 technology, with the Samsung Galaxy S4 being the first to market with a Gorilla Glass 3 screen.
