Gorilla Glass Victus 2 conquers the arch enemy of your phone screen – concrete

Gorilla Glass Victus 2 conquers the arch enemy of your phone screen – concrete

While smartphone screen durability has improved exponentially since the early days, when a spill often meant sickness, there’s still a surface that could be kryptonite to your precious OLED display.

With the second generation of Diet with Gorilla GlassCoring began designing glass that could better withstand drops in concrete, which it says is the most abundant engineered material in the world.

“In lab testing, Gorilla Glass Victus 2 survived drops up to one meter on a surface that replicated concrete,” Corning saywhile maintaining the same scratch resistance of the first Victus screen technology.

“Competitive aluminosilicate glasses from other manufacturers typically failed when dropped from half a meter or less. Additionally, Gorilla Glass Victus 2 continued to survive drops of up to two meters on a surface that replicated asphalt and maintained scratch resistance up to four times better than competing aluminosilicate.

Part of the challenge for Corning was the increase in the average size and weight of smartphones over the past few years. The company says screen sizes are 10% larger and the phones are 15% heavier than they were just four years ago. This alone increases the chance of damaging the screen when dropped.

The technology will reach the first smartphones within the next few months, Corning says. This means that Samsung Galaxy S23, will likely arrive packing technology. Its predecessor, the S22 is currently equipped with the Victus+.

Apple is a big investor in Corning and the iPhone 14 range has Victus on board. That almost certainly means next year iPhone 15 will be equipped with Victus 2.

Currently, phones like Sony Xperia 5 IV, Google Pixel 7 Pro and OnePlus 10T are equipped with Gorilla Glass Victus, so the next generation of these phones is also likely to rock the upgrade. Overall, the company says Gorilla Glass is now used in 8 billion devices from 45 brands.

“Smartphones are the center of our digital lives, and the demand for exceptional scratch and drop resistance has only grown with our growing reliance on clear, damage-free displays,” said David Velasquez, VP and GM of Gorilla Glass. “Surfaces matter, and hard surfaces like concrete are everywhere.”
