Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus, released last year, proved to be the company’s hardest glass ever. It is easily more durable than any comparable aluminosilicate on the market, with up to 4x higher scratch resistance and drops protection up to 2 meters. So it was no surprise to see it on Samsung’s premium Galaxy S21 series. Corning is taking their success a step further this year with Gorilla Glass Victus+. Samsung’s flagship S22 series will once again feature this new glass barrier.
All three Galaxy S22 phones – the Samsung Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra — will use the forthcoming Gorilla Glass Victus+, according to the industry leaker Ice Universe.
Corning hasn’t yet released the Victus+, but scratch resistance was a significant selling point for the original Victus, so we expect more improvements there.
The Galaxy S21+ and S21 Ultra have a glass sandwich casing, whilst the normal S21 has a plastic shell. The rear of the previous Galaxy Note 20 was similarly made of polycarbonate. However, this appears to be a one-time setback, since Samsung is said to be switching back to glass shells for all Galaxy S22 phones.
Ice Universe doesn’t say, but if past patterns are any indication, these new Samsung Galaxy mobile phones will have Gorilla Glass Victus+ on both the front and back. Corning does not, however, supply the Korean phone maker with only the glass shield.

The relationship between Samsung and Corning extends to the S22 Ultra camera’s ‘Super Clear Glass.’ A leaked marketing infographic first mentioned this so-called Super Clear Glass. Its purpose is to eliminate glare, ghosting, and image distortion. When the Galaxy S22 series launches on February 8, we’ll learn more.
