The new Redmi Note 10 Pro is an intriguing prospect, even with its worse SoC. One is Xiaomi's use of Gorilla Glass Victus, Corning's most robust glass type. A durability video has shown the benefits of using Gorilla Glass Victus, not least with its improved shatter resistance.

Most Android OEMs use Corning Gorilla glass to protect their smartphones, but few use the company's Gorilla Glass Victus, its strongest glass type to date. Samsung has with the Galaxy S21 Ultra, as has Xiaomi with the new Redmi Note 10 Pro. However, the latter is four to five times cheaper than the latter.

Unsurprisingly, Xiaomi has stressed just how Gorilla Glass Victus is. As the video below shows, the company has subjected the display to screwdrivers and razor blades without causing any visible damage. Additionally, the durability video shows Xiaomi tossing the new Redmi Note 10 Pro around with ice, stones and walnuts. The company even puts the device into a washing machine with dozens of nuts and screws in an attempt to damage it.

Gorilla Glass Victus withstands all this, along with attempts to bend it. Ultimately, while it is good to see Xiaomi equipping a mid-range smartphone with the same glass as its competitors use in their flagship devices, we doubt that the new Redmi Note 10 Pro could survive this much abuse outside of a controlled environment. Naturally, you can make up your mind after watching the video below.
