    Gorilla Glass is Not on the Galaxy Nexus


    Corning has updated everyone via Twitter in regards to claims that the GALAXY NEXUS by Samsung would be using their Gorilla Glass product. In the official press releas we received just before the Hong Kong unveiling, Samsung didn’t mention anything regarding Corning’s product. The rumor came from a flyer that listed the device as having it. We’re not sure where the confusion came from but we’ll be reaching out to Samsung for comment. In the meantime, do you think the Galaxy Nexus has any other sort of strong glass to protect it from scratches and light falls?

    God I hope so, but I'm sure a screen protector will find its way onto my Nexus either way.

    Ouch. Thats a big strike for me in the Nexus column! Gorilla Glass is one of the main reasons Im still using my Droid 1. Bummer. Nexus had a lead over the Razr until this. Curious to see how Samsung responds.

    It's not gorilla, but I swear I read somewhere that the Nexus' screen is supposed to be "like" gorilla glass. Samsung used something a little different, but still very strong and scratch resistant. I'm a huge fan of gorilla glass, saved my phone a time or two, so I hope whatever alternative Samsung chose keeps the Nexus safe.

    I think Samsung used the term "reinforced glass". Also, that drop test vid with the SGS2 and the iphone showed the Samsung dropped right on it's screen several times from up high and it never even cracked. So whatever "reinforced" means, I think they have it figured out!

    From what I've read, the SII's DO have gorilla glass, unlike the Nexus.

    They stated here on facebook that they use "another kind fortified glass" for the Galaxy Nexus.
