Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is the first phone with Gorilla Glass Victus
Another area where Galaxy Note 20 lags behind the Note 20 Ultra
What is Gorilla Glass Victus?
The Verge reports that repeated drop resistance has also gotten better. The Gorilla Glass Victus can survive 20 1-meter drops, up from Gorilla Glass 6's average survival rate of 15 drops.
As great as that sound, the Victus is not invincible, and bits of dirt and metal inside your pocket and handbag could still lead to a scratch.
Like previous iterations of Gorilla Glass, Victus will also ultimately protect tablets, laptops, and wearables.
With new improvements comes a price hike, but Corning insists that the cost will be offset as manufacturers will have to deal with fewer scratched displays. The company also claims that drop and scratch performance factors heavily in purchase decisions and consumers are willing to pay a premium for it.
