The new iPhone 6 will most likely be unveiled in September 2014, and have an impossibly thin design, according to rumors, but production starts 4-5 months before that, so the timing seems about right when it comes to the announcement about the displays. Don’t expect Apple to confirm or infirm anything!
iPhone 6 Will Have Sapphire Glass Display and a 4.5 Inch Display
Sapphire glass display is made from synthetic sapphire; it is very transparent to wavelengths of light and it is also extremely scratch-resistant. Apple isn’t new to sapphire glass, as the current model of iPhone, the 5S, has a cover glass on the home button made from sapphire glass. A three-year supply of the material, as Mark Shuttleworth, means that Apple plans to do more than just cover a home button with the expensive material.
It’s also been speculated that Apple will increase the size of the screen from 4 inches to 4.5 inches, which many aren’t too convinced will happen. It took Apple five generations of smartphones to change its display from 3.5 inches to 5 inches.
To be honest, we doubt that Apple will take the same route as Samsung did, with its Galaxy Note or even their 5 inch Galaxy S4 and those who are believe that Apple will launch a phablet, will most likely be disappointed. We think Apple will simply improve their materials and hardware, the iPhone 6 will have sapphire glass display and they’ll be other cool little features, but we don’t think Apple is going to make radical changes to its iPhone 6.
