Prior to this article, we never actually found out for certain what the glass on the screen was made off. Of course, like with anything else in tech nowadays, many speculations were made, many rumors were heard but none were confirmed. Well, that changes today. Corning has just confirmed that the new Samsung Galaxy S3 does use Gorilla Glass 2 which is a product of the company itself.
The new generation of Gorilla Glass was demonstrated earlier this year during CES 2012. Apparently, it maintains the same endurance standard of Gorilla Glass with a thinner structure by 20%. Gorilla Glass 2 is also said to protect your beloved new phone’s display from scratches and knocks.
According to Corning, “We are pleased to offer our customers the thin elegance and refined style of the GALAXY S III using Corning Gorilla Glass 2. New Corning Gorilla Glass 2 is an ideal solution for Samsung’s high-quality smartphones, enabling a superior touch experience and a lightweight and slim design, with the damage and scratch resistance consumers have come to expect.”
