What is Gorilla Glass 3? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Wireless and mobile glossary:

Gorilla Glass 3 is a version of Corning's product for mobile device screens introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013. According to Corning, the third formulation of the product is three times more impervious to damage than Gorilla Glass 2: stronger, more scratch-resistant, and less prone to breakage in the event of deep scratches. The material is also less brittle and constructed so that scratches that do occur are less visible. The improvements to the product also mean that the protective glass can be thinner, and thus lighter.

Samsung's Galaxy S4 smartphone, released in April 2013, is the first mobile product to feature a Gorilla Glass 3 screen.
