All three Galaxy S22 models will use a new Gorilla Glass Victus+
Corning unveiled Gorilla Glass Victus about a year and a half ago and since then it has been used in many flagship phones (starting with the Galaxy Note20 Ultra) as well as some rugged handsets. The successor to this strengthened glass may be just around the corner and it will (allegedly) be featured on Samsung’s upcoming flagships.
A month ago The Cat did say that all three S22 models will have glass backs. But even if they use an older version of Gorilla Glass for the rear panel, it will still be an upgrade over the S21 and S21+, which got plastic backs. The S21 Ultra did have Victus on both sides.
The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will have some special glass on the back – a leaked spec sheet mentions Super Clear Glass, which was also developed by Corning. This glass will reduce the reflections and glare.
You can check out dummy models of the three S22 models. Judging by the photos, the back glass will not have a high gloss finish. In fact, some colorways seem to have a matte finish. The S22 and S22+ are expected to come in Pink Gold, Green, Black and White, the Ultra should be available in Burgundy, Green, Black and White. Naturally, there will be a wide variety of first party accessories too.
Samsung hasn’t officially set a date yet, but Korean media reported that the Galaxy S22 Unpacked event will be on February 8.

Is there really any much improvement with Victus+? I still expect JerryRig to say his quintessential "scratches at a level 6 with deeper grooves at a level 7" phrase with these phones. Also, I really miss the matte-plastic backs of the...
