Samsung and its partners are in full trolling mode as we head into next week’s Unpacked event, announcing all the little details that will likely be hushed up when the Galaxy S23 line goes official. A prime example of this is the fact that Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus 2 has now been confirmed for “Galaxy’s next flagship smartphones” in this week’s announcement.

For those who missed the initial reveal of Gorilla Glass Victus 2, this is Corning’s new top-of-the-line screen protector for devices like smartphones. In a previous review, Tim described it as “improved drop performance, very high resistance to scratches and sharp contact damage, and better durability after such incidents.” The improved drop performance seems like a big benefit, so that’s cool. We’ll take all the fall power we can get in a $1,000+ smartphone.

Samsung could be the first to use the Victus 2 by our reckoning, as it was only announced last November. However, don’t expect Samsung to be the sole user of the Victus 2 – smartphone makers still love Corning’s protective glass solutions.

Since there is nothing more to say here, I will leave you with a question. Do we think products like Corning’s Gorilla Glass have really improved over the years and provide decent drop protection? I know many of you use cases and so the level of glass on the back doesn’t really matter, but I still work naked with most phones. Luckily, I don’t drop them, but I also can’t say I trust the glass on all my phones to not shatter when dropped on a hard surface. Should I stop worrying so much or not?
