Corning Announces Gorilla Glass Victus 2

Corning Gorilla Glass is used in the displays of many smartphones. With a new glass composition, the new Victus 2 has been announced. It has the same scratch resistance as the original Victus but improves drop performance on rough surfaces like concrete.

According to a large-scale survey conducted by Corning, 84% of consumers in China, India, and the United States, which are said to be the world’s three largest smartphone markets, said that durability is the second most important consideration when purchasing a device after the brand itself.

The first Victus glass launched two years ago claimed the screen could withstand a 2-meter drop, but the new version raises the bar even further. Corning says the goal was to create a durable glass that would better withstand being dropped from waist-height onto a rough surface. Smartphones have evolved a lot and are 15% heavier and 10% larger than they were four years ago, putting more stress on displays.

In laboratory tests, Gorilla Glass Victus 2 survived drops of up to one meter onto a surface miming concrete. It continued to withstand drops of up to 2 meters on simulated asphalt surfaces, maintaining up to four times better scratch resistance than competing aluminosilicates glasses.

There’s no word on which devices will get the Victus 2 display first, with Corning only stating that it’s adopted in over 8 billion devices by over 45 major brands.
