Corning has released the Corning Gorilla Glass 5, which is the fifth generation of its highly popular toughened glass display protective cover. The Gorilla Glass 5 is further enhanced to withstand more severe drops than the fourth generation. Also Corning took into consideration several factors before designing its Fifth generation glass cover in such a way to prevent fragmentation on falling down.

The fifth generation of the Corning Gorilla Glass is said to be able to withstand a drop height of 1.6 meters high on the average. When compared to previous generations, the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 stands out in that the Gorilla Glass 4 is only able to withstand a drop height of  1 meter.

Also, the thickness of the Gorilla Glass 5 was upped from o.4mm on the Glass 4 to 0.6mm. In addition to that, the ability to resist scratch on the screen is further strengthened.
