Major smartphone and tablet makers update their products usually on a yearly basis and other peripheral makers of these gadgets also update their products similarly. Corning Gorilla Glass is a key feature of major smartphones and tablets available in the market today and the announcement of the latest Gorilla Glass 3 may mean that upcoming smartphones, including iPhone 6, Galaxy S4, and more may come equipped with the latest upgrade.

Just ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013 Corning announced its latest Gorilla Glass 3. Last year at the CES 2012, the company announced the Gorilla Glass 2, so it seems that Corning has adopted a yearly product update at the CES.

"This year at CES, Corning will demonstrate its industry leadership in specialty glass and fiber optic technologies with the introduction of two products designed to enhance and extend the capabilities of consumers' favorite devices," said Wendell P. Weeks, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President. "These new innovations build on the increasingly important and continually evolving role of highly engineered glass technologies in delivering improved product performance and functionality through touch capabilities, protective cover glass, and device connectivity."

The Gorilla Glass 2 was thinner than the original Gorilla Glass but kept the same strength. The Gorilla Glass 3 will offer more toughness to a gadget's screen, will be three times more scratch resistance, and offer a 40 percent reduction in the number of visible scratches.

The announcement of Gorilla Glass 3 may hint that upcoming smartphones and tablets launched at the CES may be equipped with the latest update. Rumors are already surfacing that the next-generation iPhone 6, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, et al will be making their appearance in March or April this year. With the launch of Gorilla Glass 3 users will hope that these smartphones come equipped with the Gorilla Glass 3.

We will have to wait and see which smartphones and tablets get the latest Gorilla Glass 3.
