It goes without saying that the iPhone 6 is going to be a success by the time it is released, although whether that particular level of success is going to be as phenomenal as some of its predecessors remain to be seen. We have heard rumors of two different upcoming iPhone models to date, and this time around, a report points to the mass production of the sapphire screens kicking off later this month.
It does look as though Apple intends to let the sapphire glass displays see action on the more expensive variants of its 4.7” iPhone 6 as well as the 5.5” iPhone 6L, which makes perfect sense. After all, this is simply following the mantra that you get what you pay for, does it not?
Brokerage behemoth J.P. Morgan had a report not too long ago that touted how sapphire glass could see action on the 128GB 4.7” iPhone 6, while KGI securities’ Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, also did mention that the 64GB model of the 5.5” iPhone will be able to handle sapphire glass. Does this mean that the more affordable models (relatively speaking here) will come with Corning Gorilla Glass 3? Only time will be able to tell. How much more of a premium will folks be willing to pay for sapphire glass?
