Every passing day we uncover new details of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6 and today we have been given a detailed walkthrough of the 4.7-inch Sapphire display from the device. The display module has been put through its paces by YouTube star Marques Brownlee.
So far Apple has used Sapphire glass only to cover the camera lens and the TouchID fingerprint sensor but now it seems it will be using Sapphire for the display of the iPhone 6 as well, which would mark a move away from Corning’s Gorilla Glass solution. Late last year Apple had inked a deal with GT Advanced Technologies to provide it with Sapphire crystals that had raised speculations about the possibility of the next-gen iPhone using a Sapphire display.
The video showcases how clear and robust the display is, which is why Apple uses it to cover the camera lens. To demonstrate his point, Brownlee bends the display in various directions and puts it through a knife and key scratch test and the display passes them with not a single scratch on it.
Check out the video, which follows below.
