Corning has announced Gorilla glass 4 with tougher glass built for rougher falls. Gorilla Glass 4 provides 2times more resistance and durability against drops.
When dropped from a distance of about 1m (3.3ft) , it has resistance of 80% ; which means the probability of your screen getting damaged is less than 20%. However, chances are higher if your phone falls from while taking a call from the height of your ear.
Benefits Of Gorilla Glass 4
•Enhanced retained strength after use
•High resistance to scratch and sharp contact damage
•Improved drop performance
•Superior surface quality
Gorilla Glass 4 is only 0.4mm thick against the 0.7mm-thick Gorilla Glass 3 , which means we’re to expect slimmer devices when it rolls out next year.
