Corning announced that Samsung Electronics will use Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 as part of their next generation of Galaxy flagship smartphones. Gorilla Glass Victus 2’s new glass composition delivers improved drop performance on rough surfaces like concrete, while preserving the scratch resistance of Corning Gorilla Glass Victus.
“Today’s consumers expect damage-resistant smartphone displays,” said David Velasquez, vice president and general manager, Gorilla Glass. “For more than a decade, Gorilla Glass has met the needs of smartphone users, setting the standard for tough cover materials. We are proud to continue our long partnership with Samsung and have our latest innovations play a vital role in Samsung’s newest Galaxy smartphones.”
“We’re committed to integrating sustainability throughout our product lifecycle, working with like-minded partners such as Corning to improve performance while reducing our environmental impact,” said Stephanie Choi, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Mobile eXperience Business, Samsung Electronics. “Our next generation of Galaxy flagship smartphones are the first devices to use Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2, offering better durability and improved sustainability at the same time.”
Gorilla Glass Victus 2 launched in November 2022. By better surviving drops on rough surfaces like concrete, the world’s most abundant engineered material, it redefines tough for consumers and OEMs. Gorilla Glass Victus 2 puts a focus on the environment and has achieved an Environmental Claim Validation for containing an average of 22% pre-consumer recycled content, as validated by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). (Products bearing the UL Environmental Claim Validation Mark undergo routine audits and testing to retain their status.)
Gorilla Glass has been designed into more than eight billion devices by more than 45 major brands. With Gorilla Glass Victus 2, Corning’s Mobile Consumer Electronics business continues a legacy of innovation that includes market-leading cover glasses as well as glass and optics for semiconductor products, which enhance performance, deliver new connectivity features, and support immersive user experiences with augmented reality and 3D sensing.
