It was reported a couple of days ago that the Galaxy Note 7 might be the first smartphone ever to use Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and that has been confirmed today. It is indeed the very first smartphone to make use of the rough and tough Gorilla Glass 5. This happens to be the strongest glass that Corning has ever created so it’s another vote of confidence for Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone.

Corning says that the Gorilla Glass 5 is capable of surviving drops from 5.25 feet on rough surfaces in up to 80 percent of cases. Samsung has used Gorilla Glass 5 to protect the Galaxy Note 7’s beautiful 5.7-inch dual-edge curved display as well as its back so you can be sure that it’s not as delicate as it looks. If you’re wondering just how the handset holds up against drops just wait for a couple of days as drop test videos are bound to show up on YouTube in the near future.
