Bigger is Better …Two New iPhones with Larger Sapphire Flat Displays
Sapphire Lenses are the future of iPhone screens since they are highly unlikely to get scratched and are also impact resistant. The latest news for the iPhone future is that Apple will be discontinuing the iPhone 5c in favor of an iPhone 5s made of lower-cost materials. Not only that but Apple will reportedly release two versions both with sapphire screens with new display sizes of 4.7 and 5.5-inch due to be released in September.
The leak from industry insiders who have “seen the prototypes,” has said that both phones will feature a pixel density of 441 pixels per inch (PPI) compared to the 326 PPI currently found on the displays of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c.
In addition, the Hong Kong-based newspaper insider claims that the new devices will display a flat “bezel-free” screen and not a curved screen talked about in earlier reports. Experts confirm that Apple engineers have been experimenting with a range of screen sizes for the next-generation iPhone since early 2013, with sizes rumored to vary from 4.7 to 5.7 inches.
A Sapphire lens manufacturing company named GT Advanced, has partnered with Apple to open a plant in Arizona. GT Advanced has been preparing to mass produce sapphire displays designed for the iPhone 6. Speculation that Apple’s initial sapphire production would target the iWatch instead of the next-generation iPhone is misled since the amount of raw material and equipment the company is purchasing would match plans to manufacture approximately 200 million 5-inch sapphire displays to meet iPhone 6 Launch.
