Today Corning officially released Gorilla Glass Victus 2 for a new generation of high-end mobile phones. Compared to the original Victus, while retaining the same scratch resistance, it has further improved the survival rate after being dropped on a concrete surface. In developing the Victus 2, Corning’s goal was to create a product that was “better able to withstand drops from mid-height to rough surfaces.” In addition, they also know that the current mobile phone is 15% heavier and 10% larger than four years ago, so the design of the screen part will face more pressure than in the past.
According to official test results obtained in the laboratory, Gorilla Glass Victus 2 has withstood a drop from a height of 1 meter on a replica concrete surface. The ability of the original Victus to remain intact after being dropped from a height of 2 meters onto an asphalt surface has also been inherited. For comparison, the anti-fall performance of the competing aluminum-silicate glass is not half that of the Victus 2, and the latter is also “scratch resistant” in terms of anti-scratch performance. four times higher.”
Corning hasn’t said which phones will ship with Gorilla Glass Victus 2, but new phones with it are expected to launch “within the next few months.”
