What kind of glass is the S7 screen made of?

I'm debating between the S7 and S7E and one of my concerns is despite what ZAGG has said, there won't be a good glass screen protector for the S7E. I've been using glass screen protectors since I got the S5 and love them. They work great, look great and protect the screen from scratching. I've had to replace it once after dropping the phone and the protector cracked but the main screen didn't.

I've been looking to see what kind of glass the screen is made of to see if screen protectors are still needed. Has glass tech gotten better since the S5?

Glass can still scratch...tech hasn't gotten that good yet.

I believe it is Gorilla Glass 4. So better quality and tougher. It really depends on how hard you are on your devices. I'm pretty easy on mine, so I generally don't use a screen protector. Even though the screen is tougher, it isn't scratch resistant.

Most of the time im easy on it, but it's in my pocket all the time. I'm really just worried about scratches.
