    The announcement of the new version of Gorilla Glass seems like too much of a coincidence to not be part of the Note 7.

    That depends if Corning had told Samsung about GG5 earlier in the Note7's development cycle.

    Right now, its announcement is pretty close to the Note7's announcement date. Not entirely sure that it'll feature GG5, but I'm not holding my breath.

    What ever glass they used on the S7 Edge & S7 should have been called Baby Glass 4, it scratches so easy.

    Shatter-proof glass would be the greatest innovation. Today's phone screens break damn easily - even when encased. They've pushed the tech envelope in so many ways over the past 10 years with our phones, but the glass is still chintzy and vulnerable. Breaking a $1000 unit is a big hit.

    Unless it is unbreakable and UN. Scratch able, then I would get a screen protector anyway

    I haven't been using screen protector, never had any issues. Sure I make sure I don't put phones in pockets with keys etc. But once I got used to using the phones without screen protector can never put them again. So I for one definitely take any improvements in glass quality compared to previous versions.

    For sure. I never use screen protectors and just avoid areas with sand (and yes there are lots here in Florida) .

    I'm surprised that most people don't know it ACTUALLY exists, and existed over a year now. It's Moto's Shattershield display and it has been used on multiple phones already. It didn't get that much attention because it wasn't manufactured by Corning.

    But that's not glass if I understand correctly. It's more of plastic layer or something?

    Edit: Don't know what different layers are made of, here is a comparison with GG4

    Moto shattershield is 5 different layers of plastic type materials,
    That is why the outer layer is replaceable.

    Its great, but there is a def affect on how the screen looks. It looks great but you can tell a difference.

    I would like to see if gg5 is as strong when used on an edge screen. Just watch a video on it and doesn't really let on what phones will have it.

    Like others said, it is a plastic display. And while it won't shatter, the screen can still be dented even from a 5' drop, and the shatter shield warranty won't cover this damage

    Actually, the Note 7 will have the new Wolverine Glass which scratches the user for having the audacity to hold the phone.

    You will have to flip a coin on this one. The S7 and S7 Edge had GG 4 and it seemed to scratch much easier than past phones.

    What ever it has I hope it's better than glass the S7 & S7 Edge had.

    Samsung would be in constant contact with Corning and would be been shown the latest and greatest they were working on, for sure.
    Samsung have already demonstrated that they will not hesitate to drown the market in mid range and low range phones, will can help empty out the stocks of old-grade gorilla glass production material, and thus Corning would not need to withhold their latest and greatest product from being used in one of their top customer's latest and greatest phones. There is no legitimate reason the Note7 wouldn't have GG5, even if hell did freeze over.

    I don't think the back of the S7/Edge are GG4, but I'm not sure.
