Galaxy S24 Ultra Have Gorilla Glass Armor that Doesn’t Scratch Up to Level 6

Published

on


Samsung has introduced its Galaxy S24 series after much teasing. Although the brand took a long time in the manufacturing process, that’s totally worth it now since the Galaxy S24 series is the power package in ways such as specification, features, design, or even build quality.

This time, Samsung has paid sincere attention to the quality and durability of the latest Galaxy S24 series. One of the biggest examples is its display cover glass—a Corning Gorilla Armor. The Galaxy S24 Ultra is the first model ever to feature a titanium frame as well as Corning Gorilla Armor display protection.

Here’s the question: Actually, how efficient is the Corning Gorilla Armor? And what new improvement has it brought?

The Galaxy S24 Ultra features Gorilla Armor glass, which delivers enhanced optical quality, which means better visibility of the display even in direct sunlight. As compared to other conventional glass, it has the power to prevent glare with an efficiency of up to 75%.

The unforgettable fact is that armor glass has better anti-reflective properties. As per the statements of Corning and Samsung, Armor also has the power to prevent the screen from scratching. And the Glass Armor screen protector slightly seems more resistant as compared to Victus 2.

The predecessor Galaxy S23 Ultra has Victus 2 glass protection, and this time also, the brand has used this protection layer in the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+.

Galaxy S24 Ultra’s Glass Armor To Resist The Scratches At Level 6

To make sure how strong and efficient the armor is, a well-known YouTuber, PBKReviews, performed the Mohs Hardness Test on both the titanium frame and the glass armor panel of the Galaxy S4 Ultra. As per the results of the test, the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s Gorilla Glass Armor protection scratches at level 8 using Mohs’ Hardness Test Kit, or probably at level 7, but the marks were hardly detectable even in the camera.

As compared to previous protection glass, Armor Protection scratches at level 8, whereas others, such as the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s Victus 2 Glass, can reach up to level 6 and then start showing scratches. Since the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ also have Victus 2, these will also start showing scratches at level 6.

To prevent scratches at level 4, titanium frames or frame coatings are responsible enough to protect from scratches. Although marks start to appear at levels 5 and up, apart from scratch resistance, the titanium proves to be pretty effective against drops.

Basically, the brand has improved durability. Also in the lab tests of Corning, the Gorilla Armor performed outstandingly better than comparable alumino-silicate glasses. Despite all this, the brand has also conducted a new kind of lab test named Scratch Bot, which results in minor scratches arising from everyday use.

It is also known that there was no visible scratching of the Gorilla Armor Glass. Apart from this, the overall resistance compared to alumino-silicate glass is even four times higher, and the improved glass also contains an average of 25% pre-consumer recycled content in accordance with the UL2809-2 Environmental Claim Validation Procedure (ECVP).

Samsung to Release Galaxy Z Fold 6 ‘Slim’ in October: No S-Pen, Limited Market

Published

on


A new Samsung Galaxy device named Galaxy Z Fold 6 ‘Slim’ is on the list of Korean giants to introduce late this year. This device will be thinner than the actual Galaxy Z Fold 6. Let’s take a closer look at what the new report is saying. 

The new report says that the Korean giant is working on a new slimmer device that will be the second and thinner version of the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6. However, the slimmer version will arrive with limited availability and potentially miss some features. This comes as Samsung faces increased competition from other brands that are offering more innovative and advanced foldable devices. 

The reason behind this new edition appears to be to stand as a strong competitor in the foldable market again. Since then, Samsung has lost its market lead. The fan community is eagerly waiting and excited about a rumored thinner, cheaper Fold 6, but Samsung seemed unsure about releasing it. Now a tipter on suggests that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim will be named the Samsung W25 in China. This means the device is coming to China; however, it is also rumored to be arriving in Korea under the prior branding. 

He also hinted that the device will be lighter, thinner, and larger than the actual Galaxy Z Fold 6. This thinner variant will be released in October and does not support S-Pen. 

For now, the brand is actively focusing on launching the sixth-generation foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6, at the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event on July 10, 2024.

Published

By


The Samsung Galaxy S25 series, which includes three variants—the Galaxy S25, Galaxy S25+, and Galaxy S25 Ultra—is first in line to debut in early 2025. The Ultra variant of the series is expected to bring significant camera upgrades. 

Even before any official announcement, leaks and rumors have already revealed some of the camera specifications of the Galaxy S25 series. According to a new report by GalaxyClub, the Galaxy S25 will feature a 50MP primary rear camera. On the flip side, the device will use the same 12 MP front camera as its predecessors, the Galaxy S23 and the Galaxy S24. 

The 50MP primary camera and the 12MP selfie camera will also be used for the Galaxy S25+. whereas the ultra variant of the series is expected to feature a camera setup that includes a 200MP primary rear camera, a 50MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom, and a 50MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom. 

Previously, it was rumored that the Galaxy S25, Galaxy S25+, and Galaxy S25 Ultra feature the Exynos 2500 chip in most markets and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor in China and the USA. Now the new report says that similar to the Galaxy S23 series, the upcoming Galaxy S25 series will also use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor since Samsung foundry is facing yield-related issues in the mass production of the Exynos 2500, so Samsung will likely use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip in all the countries. 

All three phones will likely run Android 15-based OneUI 7.1 out of the box. Samsung will promise seven years of Android OS and security patches to this series and could also bring a bunch of Galaxy AI features. Reportedly, the Galaxy S25 could have a 4,000mAh battery, the Galaxy S25+ could have a 4,900mAh battery, and the Galaxy S25 Ultra could have a 5,000mAh battery.
