Will Apple’s iPhone 6 have a Sapphire glass display? We still don’t know, but we do know that Huawei will be launching a version of their classy Huawei P7.

Sapphire glass is big news at the moment and is rumoured to be the material that certain flagship smartphones will be making use of in the coming months. The iPhone 6 is the phone that is normally attached to the use of Sapphire, but Vivo and Huawei are also believed to be using the new technology.

Gizchina News of the week

Sapphire glass is made of aluminium oxide heated to extremely high temperatures to create a thin, lightweight and extremely tough material perfectly suited to mobile devices.

So with Apple, Vivo and Huawei all rumoured to be looking in to the material who will be the first to use it? Well apparently it is going to be Huawei with a special edition Sapphire Huawei Ascend P7.

It is unclear if the Sapphire P7 will feature further updates or will keep its 5-inch 1080 display, Kirin 920 processor and 13 mega-pixel camera. A launch date should be within the next few months.

    As a special edition I hope they will also use Kirin 920 instead of Kirin 910T .
    Let’s wait and hope for the best .
