No matter how cautious we get about our smartphones, chances are that we could still accidently drop these devices unexpectedly. This especially is common for who take their smartphones quickly from their pockets, lift from the table, or slips off from your hand while taking a selfie.

Interestingly, Corning now takes on the selfie angle with the new Corning Gorilla Glass 5 screen protection which can survive drops from 1.6-meter height. Corning says that the new glass has achieved almost 80% survival rate at 67-inches when compared to previous iterations and other solutions from competitors.

Corning supplies for almost all the major and start-up smartphone/tablet brands, and over 4.5 billion devices are equipped with scratch-proof and shatter proof glasses. The new Gorilla Glass 5 is expected to come in major devices later this year.
