The big-screen phone debuted earlier this month alongside a multitude of Samsung products, including a duo of tablets, a smartwatch, a wireless earbuds.

Thanks to Corning’s latest Gorilla Glass Victus used in its making, the Galaxy Note20 Ultra is incredibly durable. The new material, besides offering praiseworthy resistance from scratches, can help the big phone survive drops from up to 2 meters (almost 7 feet) without a case. For comparison, the Note20 has a plastic back and a screen covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The latter is plenty tough, but not on par with the Victus.
