New toughest Gorilla Glass Victus 2 to arrive on the Samsung Galaxy S23 series
Samsung will soon announce the new S23 series at the Galaxy Unpacked event slated next month and Corning has recently confirmed that the series will feature Gorilla Glass Victus 2. It is the toughest glass on a smartphone, and ought to increase your level of satisfaction with your phone.
The Gorilla Glass Victus 2’s new glass composition delivers improved drop performance on rough surfaces like concrete while preserving the scratch resistance of Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. It should provide the same level of scratch resistance as the first model, however, the new Gorilla Glass Victus 2 survived a one-meter drop test onto a model of concrete without suffering any damage, which is a big deal.
“Today’s consumers expect damage-resistant smartphone displays,” said David Velasquez, vice president and general manager, Gorilla Glass. “For more than a decade, Gorilla Glass has met the needs of smartphone users, setting the standard for tough cover materials. We are proud to continue our long partnership with Samsung and have our latest innovations play a vital role in Samsung’s newest Galaxy smartphones.”
“We’re committed to integrating sustainability throughout our product lifecycle, working with like-minded partners such as Corning to improve performance while reducing our environmental impact,” said Stephanie Choi, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Mobile eXperience Business, Samsung Electronics. “Our next generation of Galaxy flagship smartphones are the first devices to use Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® 2, offering better durability and improved sustainability at the same time.”
