Corning tonight unveiled its latest Gorilla Glass Victus 2 mobile glass panel, according to CNET. The new glass offers better drop resistance on rougher surfaces.
The biggest difference between the new Gorilla Glass Victus 2 and the current version is that the new version can reportedly better withstand drops on harder surfaces. In laboratory tests, the company says, the new glass was able to withstand drops from a height of 1 meter onto a concrete-grade surface. In comparison, the current Gorilla Glass Victus was tested on an asphalt-grade surface. Gorilla Glass Victus 2 also offers better protection for larger and heavier phones.
Smartphones with Gorilla Glass Victus 2 are reportedly expected to be available in the next few months.
