Gorilla Glass Victus 2 could save your big phone from disastrous falls on concrete

If you want to know why Corning created Gorilla Glass Victus 2, the new cover glass the company unveiled today, you can thank (or blame) your big, chunky phone.

When Corning started making unbreakable glass 15 years ago and started testing it on mobile devices, the benchmark was 160g, which was more than the original iPhone, which weighed 135g. Compare this to the iPhone 14 Pro, which weighs a whopping 206 grams, iPhone 14 Pro Max, which weighs a whopping 240 grams, or the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, which weighs a whopping 228 grams.
