India, November 30, 2022 – Corning smartphone glass maker brand today unveiled its newest
glass innovation, Gorilla Glass Victus 2. The brand has launched many safe glass ealier which has performed well in now With a new glass composition, Gorilla Glass Victus 2 delivers improved drop performance on rough surfaces like concrete, the world’s most abundantly engineered material, while preserving the scratch resistance of Gorilla Glass Victus.
“Smartphones are center of our digital lives, and the requirement for exceptional scratch
and drop resistance has only increased with our growing reliance on clear, damage-free
displays,” said David Velasquez, vice president and general manager, Gorilla Glass. “Surfaces
matter, and rough surfaces like concrete are everywhere.”
Corning’s extensive research has shown that 84% of consumers across three of the largest
smartphone markets – China, India, and the United States – cite durability as the number one
purchasing consideration behind brand itself.
“We challenged our scientists not only to create a glass composition that was durable enough
to better survive drops from waist height onto rougher surfaces than asphalt, but to improve
cover-glass performance for larger and heavier devices,” said Velasquez. “With more
sophisticated and varied designs, today’s smartphones are nearly 15% heavier, and screen
sizes are up to 10% larger, than they were four years ago – increasing both the stress on the
cover glass and the probability of damage. Gorilla Glass Victus 2 redefines tough for
consumers and OEMs.”
In lab tests, Gorilla Glass Victus 2 survived drops of up to one meter on a surface replicating
concrete. Competitive aluminosilicate glasses from other manufacturers typically failed when
dropped from half a meter or less. In addition, Gorilla Glass Victus 2 continued to survive drops
up to two meters on a surface replicating asphalt and maintained scratch resistance up to four
times better than competitive aluminosilicate.
For more than a decade, Gorilla Glass has helped revolutionize the way we communicate and
transform the mobile consumer electronics industry. With nearly half a billion global consumers
yet to transition to smartphones, Gorilla Glass will continue to solve tough consumer
challenges and meet the needs of current and future smartphone users.
Gorilla Glass Victus 2 is currently being evaluated by multiple customers and is expected to
reach the market within the next few months.
Gorilla Glass has been designed into more than 8 billion devices by more than 45 major
brands. Throughout the company’s Mobile Consumer Electronics (MCE) market access
platform, Corning continues its legacy of innovation with its market-leading cover glasses as
