iPhone 6 to Boast Superstrong 5-inch Sapphire Screen

b76124a8b82e00dce920ebea0aa81f11[2]The next iPhone’s display will not only be larger, it will be  so strong that you may not need a case. According to a new report, Apple is opening a manufacturing plant in Mesa, Arizona to build sapphire crystal screens for the iPhone 6. The facility could pump out as many as 116 million 5-inch displays per year.

So why sapphire crystal? The material is supposedly tougher and more scratch resistant than Corning’s Gorilla Glass. That means an accidental drop may not ruin your next iPhone. Right now it costs $149 to get the iPhone’s screen repaired at an Apple Store.

Apple is working with GT Advanced to produce the next-generation displays. The clues include sapphire inspection tools and and sapphire and chamber system units.

The iPhone 6 will  also get a curved glass edges, but at this point it doesn’t seem as if Apple will want to go as far as LG has with its bendable G Flex smartphone. Samsung has its own curved display on the Galaxy Round, but that device isn’t sold in the U.S.

Apple has been behind the curve, as it were, for a while in the display department. Although its bright and offers great color accuracy, the iPhone 5s’ 4-inch screen is puny compared to the latest Android phablets. Nevertheless, Apple holds about 40 percent of the U.S. smartphone market, though the company trails Samsung worldwide by about 18 to 29 percent.

The iPhone 6 is also considering to feature a higher-resolution display, a more advanced camera with optical image stabilization and wireless charging capabilities. There are also  reports that  suggest the device could sport a Liquid metal body, which would make Apple’s sequel one tough customer all the way around the world.
