    All the rumors point to the Galaxy S4 smartphone arriving in April 2013. We’ve also got a pretty good idea of what to expect in terms of the core components: a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, 13MP camera, and LTE out the box. But one feature that may also come as standard is an unbreakable screen.

    Today’s smartphone displays crack and break because they use glass, which is rather fragile. However, research and development is being carried out to try and replace the glass substrate with plastic, and in the process add that unbreakable property.

    Yup, I think it's going to be Gorilla Glass 3 which Corning presented at CES 2013. There is a demo on YouTube, search it if you want, where you can see exactly how strong this display is. The guy drops a metal ball on it and nothing happens :).
    Also, I don't know if you know but there is a leaked photo out there :D Hope it will look like this, I like the no Home button design. Can't wait!

    It's all relative; of course you can't build an iron-man suit out of smart phones (it will probably have a warning on somewhere just in case anyone's dumb enough to try), but a display that just doesn't shatter if it's dropped or stepped on is significantly more "unbreakable" than the current generation. If I understand it correctly, the new approach is to look for more flexible displays instead of rigid glass, so that they bend (and bend back) instead of breaking. Of course a 12 gauge would go straight through it, but bulletproof phones aren't exactly in popular demand.
