Now they have launched Corning Gorilla Glass SR+ claims to offer up to 70 percent better damage resistance against impacts and 25 percent better surface reflection than those alternative materials. Such step improvements in optical performance will enable longer battery life and improved outdoor readability.




“In early 2015, Corning launched Project Phire with the goal of engineering glass-based solutions with the scratch resistance approaching luxury cover materials, combined with the superior damage resistance of Gorilla Glass,” said Scott Forester, director, innovation products, Corning Gorilla Glass. “Corning Gorilla Glass SR+ delivers a superior combination of properties that is not available in any other material today – it is in a class of its own.”




According to Cnet, Scott Forester, director of innovation products for Gorilla Glass has said the first product using Gorilla Glass SR+ will be a smartwatch. Speculations are rife that it could possibly be the Apple watch 2. We’ve already seen its Gorilla Glass on Samsung’s Gear smartwatches and also the cheaper variant of the Apple Watch. However, the Glass SR+ is the first different form that is the result of Corning’s Project Phire. Project Phire was aimed at combining the toughness on the Gorilla Glass with a scratch-resistance which is as good as that of sapphire.
