Note 20 Ultra: The display in Samsung's latest flagship is not a fan of flames
You may think that the screen in the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra should fare just as well as other AMOLED panels in the infamous JerryRigEverything burn test. Samsung has covered its latest flagship smartphone in Gorilla Glass Victus, which is Corning's latest glass type. The glass manufacturer advertises Victus as offering four times the scratch resistance than "competitive aluminosilicate".
JerryRigEverything has exposed the limits of that claim though, as Victus scratches at level six on Mohs scale of hardness. Seemingly, "competitive aluminosilicate" means the regular stuff, and not Gorilla Glass 6. Corning also claims that Victus glass can withstand drops from up to two metres onto hard surfaces, which represents a 40 cm improvement on the capabilities of Gorilla Glass 6.
Typically, AMOLED screens recover after the JerryRigEverything burn test, albeit sans their oleophobic coating that the YouTuber burnt off. However, that is not the case with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Instead, its 120 Hz display discolours and does not recover. We are unsure why this occurs, but the behaviour is consistent with LCD panels rather than AMOLED ones.
