The iPhone 4 had the Gorilla glass. But the gorilla glass was not without its fallacies. It was susceptible to falls. News is that Gorilla glass makers, Corning are coming out with version 2 of the Gorilla glass at the Consumer Electronics Show this year. Obviously the Gorilla glass will be a lot harder than its previous avatar and hopefully it will be unbreakable this time. If Gorilla Glass 2 is released at CES, than there is a very good chance that we will see it on the upcoming iPhone 5.
iPhone 5 might be able to squeeze Gorilla Glass 2 just in time
The iPhone 4 had the Gorilla glass that the tech world has been ranting about for so long. It was touted as the material that is unbreakable. True, it was harder than regular glass. In fact, it was a lot tougher than every day glass and was able to handle a lot of falls. But it turned out that the Gorilla glass was not that tough after all. There are many a demonstrations on YouTube that shows that Gorilla glass is indeed breakable.
Now the iPhone 5 might just be able to chip in with Gorilla Glass 2 looking at the release dates. If Gorilla Glass 2 is unveiled at CES 2012 then there will be enough time for the iPhone 5 to feature the new glass. After all, Apple won’t like to miss out on any new technology that their competitors can use as leverage. iPhone 5 will be the last device that has Steve Jobs’s input and Apple would like to include anything and everything that will take the iPhone 5 to supreme heights.
