Corning announces Gorilla Glass 3
0. phoneArena 03 Jan 2013, 17:09 posted on
The major manufacturers update their flagship devices every year, and parts makers are no different. Processors get updated, displays, and even the glass that covers the display. CES looks like the time when Corning is planning to let everyone know each year why you should be excited about the new Gorilla Glass. Last year, Corning unveiled Gorilla Glass 2 at CES, and this year it's time for Gorilla Glass 3...

GG2 was still very soft but with added flexural strength. I also found it very soft and easily scratched.
Maybe GG3 will be 3rd time lucky?

my GG2 device seemed to be a lot easier to scratch than my GG1 too. ):

I wish they would also work on making the glass less reflective and more resistant to fingerprints.

I think that also has to do with some things specific manufactures do or different types of LCD and Amoled screens. The Rezound was so reflective is was like looking in a mirror. My RAZR amd Maxx HD werent as reflective. My Droid X1 wasnt as reflective, Droid 1 too.
I think HTC tried something different. It didnt work IMO.

The Sony Xperia Z (Yuga) and ZL (Odin) suposed to use The Asahi Dragontrail in the front and the back. But we only know for sure next week (I hope!)

I have had zero problems with rev. 1 or 2 honestly. I've sat on my phone several times, most times I've just left in pocket until I get up. I've dropped it half a dozen times, though it has shell around corners. I carry half the time in pocket with keys and change. No scratches or nicks anywhere. Shiny as day 1 and without any screen protection.

I'm happy to see improvements to an already unflawed product.
Flexible display 2014 sounds good to me.

Probably we only have something consistent in october or november. It seems to be a Motorola Nexus.
If it isn't a Nexus, i think it will be released between June and August.
