That Apple It has opted for the Sapphire, and that soon we will see it on the screens of their phones coming (maybe even in the iPhone 6) is a fact. Tim Cook and his people have taken over most of the production of synthetic mineral on the planet, so it is possible that are not thinking about using it only on their mobile phones, but also in other products (perhaps in the iWatch?).
As we explained our colleagues from Engadget not long ago, the hardness of Sapphire on the Mohs scale, which is one of the most used, It is only surpassed by the diamond, which makes it very appealing to protect the screen of smartphones. However, according to Diseaseslearning.com,the industrial synthesis of this mineral is complex and very expensive, which seemed to have discouraged other manufacturers. But now it seems that LG and Samsung may have changed opinion.
Several specialized media South Koreans have ensured that these two companies are determined to follow the footsteps of Apple, and that at some point also they will bet by Sapphire on their smartphones. This change of heart might be that you have noticed that the Apple company has found the way to cheapen the process of manufacture of synthetic sapphire.
The interesting thing will be to check, if it is finally confirmed this migration towards the Sapphire, will Corning react, the company that manufactures the coverage Gorilla Glass that protects many of the phones that we can currently find on the market. And it is that losing customers from the likes of listed enterprises should not be easy to fit. We’ll see what happens eventually.
