A firm called Corning, which produces Gorilla Glass for modern smartphones and tablets including those manufactured by Apple, has recently announced a new type of glass, which will be used in the smartphones and wearable devices later this year. This glass is reportedly called “Project Phire” and it can boast of the scratch resistance similar to the one sapphire has, but is far better than this material in terms of drop performance.
