Gorilla Glass, Victus is revealed: to survive 2m drops, and has twice the abrasion resistance


Corning just introduced the next generation of Gorilla Glass, no, no, no “7” but, “Victus”. The new aluminosilicate glass is promising a significantly improved resistance to scratches and dropping it on a hard surface compared to that of the competitive specs and an even older GG for generations to come.

In the tests, the Victus has been shown that it can take a face-first fall onto a hard surface from 2 meters (6.5 feet). That’s a drop of water on the concrete of the head of the high altitude.

Non-Corning glass-is usually to fall apart a fall of only 0.8 m, says the company. Gorilla Glass, 5 had an 80% chance of survival, with a reduction of 1.6 m, and the GG6 has improved those chances (especially in rough areas), but did not dare go any higher.

It is difficult to be scratched

Gorilla Glass, Victus, it is also more resistant to scratches. In the Knoop hardness test (that is, focusing on the force applied to it, and it makes use of a diamond-like-to-do panels), the new Corning glass will only have a minor scratches with an 8-Newton load, as an example of a competing glass suffered even worse to half power.

It includes not only the aesthetics, but that is the issue here). Two panes of glass have been tested and verified for durability, and damage has been caused by the deep scratches in the glass crack a lot easier than Victus.

Check out the video below to see these and a number of other tests have been performed:

Samsung is the first company to introduce a product with Gorilla Glass, Victus, “in the very near future.” Other manufacturers are also working on the flagship phones are using Corning’s new glass, but all of the info that has been kept under wraps for the time being.
