Primate- themed glass giant Croning is ready for a third release, and going by what we’ve seen in its previous release, we expect the Gorilla Glass 3 to be tougher. Corning Gorilla Glass 3 is a new glass with enhanced durability with a blend of a proprietary feature called Native Damage Resistance (NDR). The NDR according to Corning, reduces the propagation of flaws, the appearance of scratches and performs a better job in maintaining the overall retained strength of the glass. As a result, the Gorilla Glass 3 is three times as great in its resistance to scratch, 40 percent reduction in the number of visible scratches and 50 percent boost in retained strength after the glass becomes flawed. With all these enhancements, there’s no absolute guarantee that your phone or tablet will survive a five-foot drop onto concrete, but you’ll at least feel more comfortable keeping your keys somewhere close by.
