That annoying moment when you drop your phone and your screen crack! Trust me, we’ve all been there. Now, with the all-new Corning Gorilla Glass 5, the survival rate of your phone when it is dropped may just increase.

Do you know 4.5 billion devices in the world have been shipped with Gorilla Glass? Corning probably has long been a part of your smartphone experience, whether you know it or not. Today, Corning announced the 5th version of its super durable glass, called Gorilla Glass 5.

In a press release, Corning cites a study that concludes, “Over 85% of smartphone owners have dropped their phones at least once per year and 55% have dropped their phones three times or more. Additionally, more than 60% of smartphone owners reported dropping their devices between shoulder and waist height.”

Corning has been making a more resistant version of Gorilla Glass nearly every two years since its inception in 2007, and this year’s version is taking the glass to new heights — literally.
