Since we’re just sitting around waiting for a release date here in the US, we might as well focus on other aspects of the Galaxy S III that are coming to light. It may not come as a surprise to many, but the boys at SammyHub just picked up Corning’s website that the Galaxy S III is fitted with Gorilla Glass 2. Corning announced the news with a brief quote:
We are pleased to offer our customers the thin elegance and refined style of the GALAXY S III using Corning Gorilla Glass 2. New Corning Gorilla Glass 2 is an ideal solution for Samsung’s high-quality smartphones, enabling a superior touch experience and a lightweight and slim design, with the damage and scratch resistance consumers have come to expect.
Gorilla Glass 2 helps reduce the thickness of the glass by up to 20 percent while offering better protection against scratches. Ok, back to waiting for a release date.
