There is no weak point that crashes the screen on your smartphone. This is happening especially in bold and the caseless. Better to focus on all the times that are not happening, those who dive when the phone touches the floor and pulls back safely back. That’s why you can thank the “Gorilla Glass”, an open miracle material found for every iPhone and Android flagship screen that has been around for over a decade. And what the Gorilla Glass 6 announced this week was not only difficult, it is created for the future of the phones.
Start with what the Gorilla Glass 6 can do. Corning, the company that makes it, says he’s focusing on long-term use. In their own test, the next generation Gorilla Glass was dropped over 15 times on rough surfaces with a height of 1 meter. It is more than double the Gorilla Glass 5, released two years ago.
Corning vice president Scott Forester said, “That’s why we’re still trying to tackle this kind of competition.” Instead, the Gorilla Glass 5 has survived, but the decline of what Forester called ” Selfie Height “.
To achieve this priority change without frustrating, Corning has not only turned to chemistry but also created new components. In particular, Corning raises what is called compressive stress of the glass, which can help prevent side effects.
“There are always two main components of Gorilla Glass”. “One is the real glass component at the atomic level that contains in the glass itself. And what we do is to combine it with ion exchange process, which is strengthening the process,” said Forester Research. The glass is soaked in the molten bath of salts, which the ions of salt are left and larger ions of the potassium enter. You are jamming them into the glass. And what he does is create the complexity of the oppression of the surface.
The process of creating a new generation of Gorilla Glass turns out to be something like the designing of bikes wheel or maybe two more gears accurately-the composition and the strengthening process, that fit your goals.
That’s what we’re trying to figure out – this is down again and again.
“You have reached a point where there are so many things you can do in the family of the glass composition, and that’s when it becomes necessary to enter a new family that can offer upgrade property which was not previously available. Mr. John Mauro is a professor of materials, science, and engineering at the Penn State University and had spent 18 years at Corning have worked on Gorilla Glass “Every time we find something different to become on top ourselves.”
Attention to Corning’s accusations: The practice of mirrors in the real world will differ from what happens in the lab and Mauro notes that the manufacturers can request a thinner version or form A specific one that can mitigate as part of its sustainability. There are some compromises that phone makers can work, and it’s up to them to understand what’s the best compromise.
No matter what makes a separate manufacturer, the Gorilla Glass 6 can handle more drops than its predecessor and deal with scratches and more high drops as well. But, more importantly, it depends on the speed of smartphone innovation.
When Apple installed the front and back of the iPhone 4 in 2010, it doubled the chances that you would need to fix it without much practice. Eight years later, the glass starts to dominate the smartphone surface area, for good reason.
Just like wireless charging, you can not do this before with your metal backs.” Forester said, who noted that the metal backs could also affect daily use of smartphones or require design coordination – considering the panel on the back of the iPhone 6 – to work around them. “Things like NFC and Apple Paying Technology, these antennas want these in the transparent kind of material like glass. GPS, Bluetooth, your Wi-Fi internet everywhere. All of these things have not been activated by the glass but they are supported and assisted in the design of the device. ”
For this purpose, Corning grows the process of an inkjet process, called Vibrant Gorilla Glass, which allows producers to make any designs or colour on the glass itself, creating a custom case. Forester says Corning is currently studying the addition of textures and slope.
You can expect to see the Gorilla Glass 6 in the next couple of months and eventually spread on every major mobile device. (Number of consumer devices spread throughout the world of Gorilla Glass is above 6 billion). In every generation, it shows improvements due to its important role in the smartphone industry.
