Apple iPhone 7 Rumored to be Featuring Sapphire Display

News Source: 

Many consumers are still waiting in line to receive their iPhone 6, hardly a month has gone by since the smartphone’s launch, but market rumors about its successor are already being leaked by a British Christian news website.

According to Christian Today, market rumors indicate the iPhone 7 might be released in 2016 and feature sapphire displays manufactured by Apple’s long term OEM partner and supplier Foxconn. In the latest display supply contract inked with Apple, Foxconn will be delivering supplies for high end smartphones. The rumor is based on a Wall Street Journal that reported Foxconn recently signed an investment deal with the Zhenzhou government to construct a display factory.

As with every new generation iPhone rumor, the transparent phone rumor has resurfaced. iPhone7info backed this claim citing Apple had filed for a “transparent phone concept,” which no one knows if it will be completed within one year, and whether the design is deliverable on a mass scale.

It is probably still too early for Apple to consider the specs for its next phone, and as seen with GTAT’s recent trouble with sapphire glass cover production, sapphire yield rates and processing will pose specific technical issues. It will be difficult to wrap the entire smartphone with sapphire to make it scratch proof as proposed by iPhone7info.
