Harambe would be proud, Corning. The new Gorilla Glass SR+ is perfect for the new generation of smartwatches.
While Gorilla Glass 4 and 5 are aimed at phones, Glass SR+ is specifically aimed at the wearables market. According to the company the new glass offers “superior scratch resistance approaching that of alternative luxury cover materials”, namely sapphire.
Corning says the new glass delivers up to 70% better damage resistance against impacts, and 25% better surface reflection than other materials.
Corning says that the new glass will be on wearables and smartwatches later this year.
