4.7″ iPhone 6 sapphire display put through scratch test [Video]

iPhone 6 Display


A new video from Marques Brownlee puts the much rumored next-generation iPhone sapphire display through a major scratch test. Brownlee not only bends the sapphire display; he also takes his keys and a pocket knife to the display and attempts to make a dent in the screen (attempts is the keyword here).

The beginning of the video gives a look at what the sapphire display that will supposedly make up the screen of the iPhone 6 will look like. In the latter half of the video, Brownlee puts the iPhone display through a major scratch test using a pocket knife and a set of keys. After his attempt to scratch the display, he then tries to bend it and gets similar results, which leads me to believe that the next-generation iPhone’s display will be very durable (hopefully, at least).

Although there’s still additional testing that needs to be done in order to fully get a real representation of the quality and durability of the display, it held up pretty well. Brownlee concluded that he wouldn’t be able to leave a scratch of any kind on the display without some kind of  mechanical assistance.

What do you guys think? Will Apple include this sapphire display (or a similar one) into the next-generation iPhone? Let me know what you guys think in the comments section down below and also be sure to give me a shout on Twitter – @malloriedeaton.
