Has anyone been able to find anywhere what version of Gorilla glass is on the Note 3? I'm wondering if it is Gorilla Glass 3 or 4.

I couldn't find any information regarding this!
I don't think there is Gorilla Glass 4 though... Just hoping that my Note 3 has at least GG 3, just to be safe!

Yeah, looking at the reflectance measurements at displaymate, while they were good, they weren't the super-mega-amazing results that GG4 should of brought. However, I don't doubt whatsoever that it has anything less than GG3, especially since the S4 has it, and the Note 3 is better than the S4 in every way(not to mention it has the best display out of any phone ever).

I'm thinking the same thing mate!

Here are 2 websites mentioning that Note 3 comes with GG3. Now totaly official source, but what the heck!

Site 1

Site 2

P.S.

These are press releases before the anouncement of the device, but that is all i have for now mate!

VZW says Note 3 has GG3
It's been bugging me that no mention is made of Gorilla Glass on Samsung or Corning. No carriers mention it but in the Verizon detailed specs they say Gorilla Glass 3.

I wonder if VZ is perhaps wrong as once upon a time I had read that Samsung was using a GG clone of some sort.

Paste from VZW site:

Specifications
Design
5.7” full HD Super AMOLED Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 Touch Screen Display
Enhanced S–Pen
Dimensions
5.95” (H) x 3.12” (W) x .33” (D) inches
Weight: 5.93 oz.
Network
LTE, CDMA/1xEVDO Rev. A (800/1900 MHz)
Global Network: EDGE/GSM (850/900/1800/1900), HSPA/UMTS(850/900/1900/2100)

Bolding is my doing.

The mystery continues.

Corning Gorilla Glass 4 has an anti-reflection coating and an anti-fingerprint/grease coating.

Thus, the Note 3 has CGG3. Because I can count the individual reflected birds is the sky on the glass, once I clear off the fingerprints.

We know it has 3, because the S4 has CGG3, too. Samsung already told us we have the S4's screen.

there was nothing official. everything is just inferred conclusion like:

1. S4 has GG3. Note3 is higher/better than S4. So it has the better, or at least same screen.
2. Samsung has stake or ownership in Corning. So its assumed they would have put at least Gorilla Glass on it.

corning site doesn't mention it (seen that news below was updated nov 4 2013)

Full device list doesn't have it. But maybe list isn't updated?

Side note. I had to replace my day one Note 3 with a new just days ago and had the new one laying right next to the old one. With polarized sunglasses on the new one was darker when looking straight on and would then lighten to match the old one if I tilted my head. Normal with polarized glass. Its weird that it seems there was a change.

I don't think you can assume the Note 3 has GG3 - simply because Samsung has been known to use parts from various suppliers according to their needs at the time. Also, if it was GG3, I'm sure Samsung Marketing would be touting that fact hard to sell these phones.

I do know that the Canadian model of the Note 3 has Gorilla Glass, but I do not know what version it is, and I don't know if the other models of the Note 3 have it.

EDIT: Before someone asks for proof, I talked to the product manager in the Canadian facility. Just call your nearest Samsung facility and pester for a product manager or someone who deals with the products.

Judging by the scratchproofness (i declare that a word.) it seems logical. Normal glass does not handle keys, idiots and catclaws as well as this.

It's not GG4, because that is glare-free. The S4 has GG3, makes sense this one does too.
