Corning Introduces New Gorilla Glass 3

The ape themed glass never seems to get old. Now in its third revision Corning has brought some new improvements to their glass. This time bringing NDR or Native Damage Resistance. With a fancy acronym, comes fancy features. By improving the glass at a molecular level, it creates an improvement of scratch resistance three fold. Along with the number of visible number of scratches being reduced by 40% and retained strength increasing by 50% after the glass is damaged.

This doesn't mean the glass is nearly indestructible, but its getting close. But you have to remember its still glass. Meaning it still be scratched by something as minute as sand. On the bright side, you can look forward to your keys and phone becoming best buddies in the same pocket.
