Corning Gorilla Glass 6 cover glass announced for next-gen mobile devices. Corning Incorporated today introduced its latest breakthrough in glass technology, Gorilla Glass 6. Gorilla Glass 6 provides unprecedented protection against multiple drops and it's Corning's most durable cover glass to date.

A recent worldwide Toluna consumer study revealed that, on average, people drop their phones seven times a year, with more than 50 percent of the drops occurring at 1 meter or below. To improve cover glass performance, Corning scientists developed and engineered an entirely new material to address the challenge of multiple drops. On average, in lab tests, Gorilla Glass 6 survived 15 drops from 1 meter onto rough surfaces, and is up to two times better than Gorilla Glass 5. Under the same test conditions, competitive glass compositions, such as soda lime and aluminosilicate, did not survive the first drop.

In addition to larger front displays with more surface area, mobile device manufacturers are also embracing phone designs with glass backs. These designs are providing new features and applications for consumers, such as enhanced wireless charging, larger screen sizes with smaller bezels, and customization through printed glass backs. With its optical clarity, touch sensitivity, scratch resistance, efficient wireless charging, and enhanced durability, Gorilla Glass 6 is poised to enable these new design trends.

Availability
Corning Gorilla Glass 6 is currently being evaluated by multiple customers, and is expected to reach the market in the next several months.

Here are some of the new features that come with Skype version 8.0:
Free HD video and screensharing calls - Get together with 1 or 24 of your friends, families, or colleagues no matter what device they use Skype on. See everyone in high definition, view 1080px video, and share things together.
Mentions - Use @mentions to easily grab someone's attention in a group chat. Simply type the @ symbol followed by their name to trigger a notification for them. You can easily find all your @mentions and get back to people in the notification center.
Customizable themes - Choose a color and theme for your Skype client through your application settings.​
Chat media gallery - Looking for the link or photo sent a few weeks ago? Chat media gallery makes it easy to find files, links, and photos that were shared in a conversation, whether it was yesterday or last month. No more scrolling through your chat history-just click Gallery under the chat name to see all the files, links, and photos in the conversation.
Share photos, videos, and other files - Share up to 300 MB at a time over Skype just by dragging and dropping files into your conversation window.

Here's a sneak peek at more new features starting to roll out now with more coming later this summer:
Call recording - Take call snapshots to the next level with call recording. Call recording is completely cloud-based, and as soon as you start recording, everyone in the call is notified that the call is being recorded-so there are no surprises. Call recordings combine everyone's video as well as any screens shared during the call.
Read receipts - See at a glance who's read your messages. Once someone reads your message, their avatar appears beneath it in the Skype chat-enabling you to see how far someone has read in the conversation without tapping every message. This is especially useful in group conversations to help you make sure everyone is caught up with the latest messages.
Private Conversations - Have end-to-end encrypted Skype audio calls and send text messages or files-such as images, audio, or videos-using the industry standard Signal Protocol. Messages and notifications in these conversations will be hidden in the chat list to keep the information you share private.
Profile invites - Easily start a conversation or call with people who aren't on Skype yet. Simply go to your profile in Skype and tap the Share Profile option to invite friends to join you on Skype.
Group links - Quickly get a group together on Skype, for either a group chat or call. Create a new group and tap the Invite More People option to share a link to your group. Anyone you send the link to can join your group quickly and simply.
Skype version 8.0 rolling out on iPad - Features such as quoted messages, personalized themes, chat list, @mentions, and more are now available on the Skype for iPad.

Xperia XA2 Plus sports a 6" Full HD+ 18:9 display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, to help protect against accidental drops. It includes a mini-display mode, letting you switch between a smaller and larger on-screen interface, for easy one-handed operation and typing. And, unlocking is made easy with the one-touch rear fingerprint sensor - integrated into the smooth metallic back panel.

The Xperia XA2 Plus runs on Android 8.0 Oreo and available in Single SIM and Dual SIM. It's equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform, 32/64GB internal storage, 4GB/6GB of RAM and is powered by a high-capacity 3,580 mAh battery. Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 technology is also supported to give you hours of power with just minutes of charging.

Xperia XA2 Plus's powerful 23MP rear camera packs Sony's large 1/2.3" Exmor RS for mobile image sensor, with ISO 12800 sensitivity for clear low-light photography. It features 4K movie recording, allowing you to create high-quality videos with better colour and deeper pixels - and 120fps slow motion video capture is also included for dramatizing action and movement. There is also a 8MP 120° super wide-angle front camera for selfies. The "Portrait selfie" mode includes new Bokeh and Beauty features, so you can also artfully adjust the focus in real-time, for a creatively blurred depth-of-field effect.

Xperia XA2 Plus is the first super mid-range smartphone to feature Sony's High-Resolution Audio technology, so you can enjoy your music in its purest and truest form - just as it was produced, as the artist intended.

Sony's Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE HX) automatically upscales your MP3s and compressed sound files to near high-resolution sound quality - injecting new life into your tunes by restoring the subtleties of the original recordings and simulating the sounds of live performance.

You'll also be able to enjoy better Bluetooth streaming quality with Sony's LDAC feature - enhanced Bluetooth technology that can handle near High-Resolution Audio quality, so music has never sounded better even when listening via wireless speakers or headphones.
