Does Samsung Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra Have Gorilla Glass and Screen Protector?

Yes, the new Samsung S23 family which comprises the Galaxy S23, S23 Ultra, and S23 Plus comes with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 which is an incremental upgrade from the Victus+ that the S22 family comes with.

Samsung S23 family has Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protecting the front (screen) and back while their frame is made of Armor Aluminum.

Gorilla Glass on Samsung S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra

While the Gorilla Glass on the S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra will prevent them from shattering when dropped from a height of like 2 meters and will to a high degree resist scratching when inside a bag with possible items, it is not a total protection.

If dropped from a really high height, you most likely will pick it up with the screen shattered and when put in contact with very sharp objects, it might leave some scratches on it.

None of these three devices comes with an alternative screen protector such as a tempered glass out of the box. If you think you need one, you will have to get it separately.

Those that have no personal issue with wearing their smartphone in a case can also get one for additional protection of the front and back glass.

In conclusion, the Samsung Galaxy S23 series comes with the latest version of Gorilla Glass (Victus 2) as at the time they were announced but it is only slightly better than the previous generation of the Glass.
