iPhone 6 sapphire screen breaks on video
The upcoming Apple iPhone 6 is attracting plenty of attention and we’ve already seen numerous leaks and rumors about what it will have to offer. Over the last few weeks we’ve also seen many images of iPhone 6 dummies and purported components of the phone. Now we have a video for you to view that that claims to show the iPhone 6 sapphire screen breaking, although you are likely to be surprised at how much it takes to do the damage!
The use of sapphire glass for the display of the iPhone 6 is something that’s been rumored for some time, and it was already used for the home button of the iPhone 5S. One of the benefits is that sapphire displays are supposed to be stronger and more scratch-resistant.
The next iPhone is thought to be already in production and coming in two models, one with a 4.7-inch display and a phablet with a 5.5-inch screen. We recently showed an image that was claimed to be of the screen glass for the smaller model and now a video has now been posted to YouTube that claims to show a stress test on the front panel for the 4.7-inch version.
The narration of the video that you can view below this story is not in English, but the action is easy enough to follow. You’ll see the purported front panel subjected to attack by keys, nails, hammer, pliers, office chair wheels, and even an attack with fire. However, it’s not until a heavy off-road vehicle drives across it that it finally cracks.
It’s pretty impressive stuff and it looks as though sapphire screens could at last end the peril of cracked displays on devices, so let’s hope that this genuinely is the front panel of the iPhone 6 being shown.
