Ahead of CES 2013, Corning unveils its newest glass composition aimed for the next generation smartphones and tablets. The New York company will reveal full product detail at the CES, but a new iteration of the company's flagship product is Gorilla Glass 3, which comes with a new feature called Native Damage Resistance (NDR). Reportedly the NDR reduces the spread of flaws with a 40 percent reduction in the number of visible scratches.
Corning said the strength has also been increased by 50 percent over the last generation. The company also said it will be showing off its optical fiber-based connectivity solutions. The newest technology extends the data transmission range past the limits of copper-based cables.
