Global tech company Corning Incorporated on Monday announced that OPPO will be the first mobile device manufacturer to adopt its latest cover glass technology Gorilla Glass 6.

OPPO’s new flagship smartphone utilising Gorilla Glass 6 is slated to release in the coming weeks, the company said in a statement.

In lab tests, Gorilla Glass 6 survived 15 drops from one metre onto rough surfaces whereas competitive glass compositions, such as soda lime and aluminosilicate, did not survive the first drop.

“We are excited to have OPPO adopt Gorilla Glass 6,” John Bayne, Vice President and General Manager, Corning Gorilla Glass, said in a statement.

Unveiled in July, Gorilla Glass 6 is the company’s most durable cover glass to date.

“OPPO’s new flagship model will provide consumers, who depend on their smartphone for every interaction in their digital lives, increased protection against multiple drops,” Bayne added.

A budget version of the newly-launched BlackBerry KEY2, which is likely to be named BlackBerry KEY2 Lite or KEY2 LE, may be launched at the upcoming IFA 2018 in Berlin, Germany.

“TCL- the manufacturer behind the BB brand has sent out ‘save the date’ invites for an IFA event. It will be held on August 30 and while it offers no official details on what will be announced, there is only one rumoured phone in our database — the BlackBerry KEY2 LE,” GSM Arena reported late on Monday.

Similar to Key2, the physical keyboard experience would be the smartphone’s main USP.

“KEY2 will have less processing power on tap — the Snapdragon 660 chipset will be swapped out for a 636 and RAM capacity will drop to 4GB (still better than the Keyone),” the report added.

The device is expected to replace the 12+12MP dual camera set-up of KEY2 with a 12MP+5MP model.
