For Gorilla Glass 6, Corning engineered a brand new material to create a glass that could withstand multiple drops. A recent study claimed that users tend to drop their phones seven times a year with more than 50% of those drops occurring at a meter or below. Corning used that measurement as a benchmark for their latest Gorilla Glass, which has been tested to withstand 15 drops from 1 meter (3.2 feet) onto rough surfaces.

No word yet on who's going to use Gorilla Glass 6 in their smartphones, but expect to see it in the latest and greatest models in the next several months.
