One of the underrated components of the Galaxy Note 20 series is its use of the Gorilla Glass Victus. Think of this as Gorilla Glass 7, the latest innovation from Corning. And this edition is a great thing, and provides protection without sacrifices.
There are two common types of glass damage: scratches and cracks. Unfortunately, the two are inversely correlated, so Corning has always had to sacrifice one to improve the other. Gorilla Glass 6 is an excellent example of this – it can withstand several drops from a meter, but if you leave it in your purse or pocket it would result in a scratch or two.
Gorilla Glass Victus is the first generation to improve both. Your Galaxy Note 20 or Note 20 Ultra can survive high drops and resist scratches, providing ultimate protection.
Stronger against drops and scratches
Scratch protection has been a weak spot in previous iterations of Gorilla Glass. Corning continues to improve its ability to survive higher drops, but this has usually been done by making the glass more flexible, which in itself makes the glass more prone to scratches. Gorilla Glass Victus changes this.
Your Victus-equipped Galaxy Note 20 can withstand drops of up to 2 meters (6.56 feet) on a rough surface without breaking. It̵7;s 25% better than Gorilla Glass 6 equipped Galaxy Note 10 and 10+. But it’s not just a drop; Gorilla Glass Victus can survive several drops without error at the same distance.
With his fans expressing that rope resistance was just as important, Corning also improved here. Victus is twice as scratch resistant as Gorilla Glass 6. When conducting the Knoop Diamond Scratch Test, Victus had a threshold of 7-10 Newtons, two to four times more than the competition.
Best of all, the total cost of Gorilla Glass Victus is the same as Gorilla Glass 6 due to less glass being wasted in the manufacturing process. As a result, the implementation of this new technology should not raise the prices of smartphones.
Galaxy Note 20 vs. Note 20 Ultra
Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has Gorilla Glass Victus on both the front and back of the phone. Thanks to its carpet coating, fewer fingerprints and scratches will be visible. And thanks to Victus’ improved rope resistance, the chance that some marks appear on the back cover.
As for the front screen, you have two levels of protection, the previously applied screen protector and Victus. Thanks to these tools, your screen will remain as perfect as it came out of the box.
With the Galaxy Note 20, the back panel is plastic. But on the front, it has the same Gorilla Glass Victus and the previously applied screen protector to keep that side of the phone in mint condition.
