Glass and other questions

[ New ]

#1 I read new glass is 2x stronger.Not sure what that means.What I do care about... is the lense glass toughened or "Gorilla" type glass? less likely to scratch? Do I need one of those screen protector kits(glass that sticks on) ?

 #2 The back screen.... is that scratch resistant "tough" glass ?

#3 I see it says "pre order" when does the cam ACTUALLY come out?

 

* i guess the 4k 240 and new type II processon are just fake news.

 

Ty in advance

*Edit   I got the goofey name Snowyapex5332 somehow...anyway to change this name?

Hello @snowyapex5332 @fishycomics

 

Our old glass thickness was only 1.0mm.

It is now 2.0mm for the HERO8 Black.

 

Thanks!
