Back in July 2018, the company announced the 6th gen Corning Gorilla Glass. It is the successor to the Corning Gorilla Glass 5, which was announced in 2016 and is seen on most of the premium Android flagship smartphones. More than 45 OEMs make do with a Gorilla Glass on their smartphones, and more than 6 billion devices come with Corning Gorilla Glass protection.

The company claims that the new glass in up to two times stronger than the Corning Gorilla Glass 5. In the company's lab test, the Gorilla Glass 6 withstood intense impacts and proved to be more durable than its precursor.
