Apple To Launch Sapphire-Crystal Glass iPhone 6 In Two Sizes – 4.7/5.5 inch In September

  • February 12, 2014

 South China Morning Post (via 9to5 mac)  is reporting that Apple will indeed launch their next-generation iPhone in two sizes – 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch in September, according to industry insiders who have seen the prototypes.

More importantly,  the new iPhone will feature a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass display. Apple currently use Sapphire crystal for its iPhone camera lens cover and Touch ID cover.  This report contradicts an earlier report, which suggests that the iPhone 6 will be launched without the rumored sapphire display due to issues with yield.

Other key highlights from the SCMP report include:

  • The iPhone 6 will sport a new display at 441 pixels per inch (ppi)
  • The screens will be flat and not the rumored round display.
  • The design “freeze” for the iPhone 6 – after which no changes will be made – is set for April this year, which means anything could happen before this date.
