iPhone 6 Sapphire Display Knife and Key Scratch Test (Images and Video)

Earlier this week Marque Brownlee showed how the iPhone 6 sapphire display looks and how durable it is by performing a knife and key scratch test

The iPhone 6 is expected to be to revealed in September with two different models; iPhone 6 with a 4.7 inch display and iPhone 6 with a 5.5 inch display.

The rumor is that only the iPhone 6 with 5.5 inch display would be getting a sapphire display, however from the video posted by Brwonlee, both the 4.7 and 5.5 inch iPhone 6 will come with the super durable sapphire display.

In the video, Brownlee tried to bend and break the screen but the screen seems tough enough not to break. Also, a very sharp and sturdy knife was used to probe the screen strongly and nothing happen; so also was the scratch of a key on the screen display.

Marque Brwonlee also shows in his video that the iPhone 6 display is very clear with almost 0% opacity and ultra thin. Meaning that images and colours would be very clear and distinct.

What this says is that the iPhone 6 will have a very solid screen, extremely durable and with high clarity and resolution and this would be a good thing in our books.

Already, Apple used the sapphire glass in the iPhone 5S camera and home button to give it extra durability and clarity and this time, Apple is extending the usage of the Sapphire glass.

In the future its possible that other newer iPhone will be all Sapphire especially with the recent patent filling that Apple made. The filing is about an iPhone with all round glass in and out.
