So basically the exact same gorilla glass with a generic name?
I would say it is the same which is not a bad thing.
Apple doesn't want to use the brand name Gorilla Glass since their foray into sapphire glass manufacturing.
Marques Brownlee posted a video over a month ago:
Seems the "ion strengthened" is definitely more scratch resistant and perhaps better in drops then gorilla glass, but will see.
But is it a better generation of glass or the same? The sides are curved obviously and what about that you tube scratch test that young black dude did
It is Gorilla Glass
From what I understand of the process (and this is purely from all the information provided at the Keynote so forgive me): they bombard the glass screen with positively charged ions in a super collider. The glass then travels through space-time, becoming stronger and stronger each trip because of the inherent stresses of time travel. After 143 years (equivalent, remember this all happens in an instant, it's very technical), the glass arrives situated perfectly atop the completed iPhone on the assembly line.
Then you get one, sit on it (or drop it), shatter the screen, and can still blame Apple anyway.
Turns out, even with ion strengthening, GLASS IS GLASS.
I am not expecting better than the same.
Damn it hurt to see that sandpaper scratch up the screen.
