Have you worried about the glass after dropping your smartphone? Glass used to make smartphone screens just got stronger. The glass company Corning makes Gorilla Glass. This has been used in smartphones for many years. It has improved the glass to make it more difficult to scratch, crack or smash. It can survive drops of up to two metres without any damage. It is also two times stronger against scratches than any other glass.

A Corning spokesperson spoke about the new product. He said: "Dropped phones can result in broken phones." He said it was important to make glass that could survive higher drops and be more difficult to scratch. He added that instead of focusing on making the glass better for either drops or scratches, it would be better to focus on improving both. The new glass will debut on Samsung products "in the near future".
