It’s usually Samsung A first in the smartphone industry to incorporate Corning’s new Gorilla Glass defense. A few months ago, Corning has introduced Gorilla Glass Victus 2 and promised to be more shatter resistant while exhibiting the same scratch resistance. now, the company first confirmed that Gorilla Glass Victus 2 will be used on the new generation Galaxy smartphone.
This means that Galaxy S23 the series has Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection on the front (over the display) and back. This new protective panel is manufactured using a glass composite and offers improved drop performance on rough surfaces such as concrete. Gorilla Glass Victus 2 will resist shattering when the phone is dropped from waist height onto a concrete surface. It is also claimed to offer head-level fracture resistance over asphalt.
Corning says Gorilla Glass Victus 2 is also environmentally conscious, achieving an Environmental Claim Assessment for containing an average of 22% pre-consumer recycled content. UL (Underwriters Laboratories), an independent research and analysis firm, confirmed this claim.
