For all the talk of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus
in recent days, there's still quite a few questions
surrounding the flagship Ice Cream Sandwich
phone. Last week we learned
that the phone's 4.65-inch screen was a standard Super AMOLED display and not a Super AMOLED Plus
variation (as seen on the Galaxy S II
), and now Corning has confirmed that the device doesn't use its trademark Gorilla Glass
as you may have assumed given its high-end status. According to Samsung, however, it does use a type of "fortified glass," but the company isn't getting any more specific than that. We guess we'll have to wait for some stress tests (or clumsy hands) to see just how well it holds up.
