Not too long ago, it was rumored that Samsung Galaxy Note7 and Apple iPhone 7 will be equipped with the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
It turns out Samsung has taken the lead as Galaxy Note 7 becomes the first handset to come with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
According to the company, it’s the strongest glass to date and can withstand a drop from 5.25 feet (1.6 meters) on rough surfaces in “up to 80% of cases”. The glass protects the curved display as well as the rear of the Galaxy Note 7 so it’s a well-protected handset.
As a quick recap, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 comes with a 5.7-inch Super Amoled display with a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels with the processing handled by an octa-core processor. There’s 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 64GB of internal storage, 12MP camera for photos and videos with optical images stabilization, 5MP front-facing camera, a 3,500 mAh battery and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow as its operating system. The handset also comes with the S Pen as well as IP68 certification making the handset dust and water resistant.
The handset will be up for pre-orders starting tomorrow in the US while customers in Europe will be able to pre-order it starting August 16th.
