First phablet with Gorilla Glass 4? Why, Note 4, of course.
We first heard about the potential next Gorilla Glass 4 edition when a Lumia flagship prototype leaked out, and was featured with the tough and thin protective layer on top of its display. At the time it was dismissed as a typo or a fake rumor, but a few weeks later, at the end of November, Corning indeed took to the airwaves, and announced the fourth iteration of its Gorilla Glass franchise. This one is thinner and stronger than its predecessor, as they always are, but we knew nothing about which handsets are or will be equipped with the durable sheets.
Well, yesterday Corning issued a press release to inform us that it's the Galaxy Alpha that had the privilege to be the first handset flaunting Gorilla Glass 4, which allowed it to remain thin, light and yet a tough nut to crack. Now, we are learning that there is at least another handset out there with the new cover sheet from Corning, and it is none other than the Note 4 - the world's first phablet with Gorilla Glass 4, suits it right.
