Galaxy Nexus screen isn't Gorilla Glass

We’ve got our hands on a Galaxy Nexus – and we're being super careful as the screen isn’t Corning Gorilla Glass

When the Galaxy Nexus arrived at Stuff towers yesterday we battled furiously over it, tossing it about under the – frankly fair – assumption that it, like most smartphones, would be protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass.

Luckily we didn’t drop it. Because the Galaxy Nexus manages to take a step back from its Samsung predecessor: the Galaxy S II, as it isn't kitted out with Gorilla Glass.

That’s not to say it’s totally weak – according to AndroidAndMe the glass is “fortified,” which is reassuring. Still, we're going to treat it a bit more delicately from now on – hopefully the next-gen Nexus will be wearing Corning’s new Lotus Glass. Keep tuned for our Galaxy Nexus video review later today.
