Samsung and LG will most likely make use of sapphire in the near future

The use of sapphire is not something new to smartphone manufacturing but the use of it has only remained limited to the more luxurious phones like the Vertu Ti. It was also used in iPhone but in such a little amount that was just enough for the camera lens and the fingerprint sensor. Nevertheless, the sapphire glass has been the centre of attention of many manufacturers and there are reports suggesting that as time goes in, this ‘luxury’ material is going to become more mainstream.

You might be surprised to know that there have been reports suggesting that the Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch might feature a sapphire glass display, and there’s also been a lot of talking regarding the 5.44 / 5.5 inch iPhone 6, which will supposedly feature a sapphire glass panel. And now we are hearing that Samsung and LG will soon utilize the materials in their upcoming devices. And we might just have a little evidence to support this view because both the companies have reportedly got in touch with sapphire glass manufacturers / suppliers in order to receive a few samples of their work.

The material was reviewed last year as well by both these companies but being a luxury and high cost component, it wasn’t used in any of their devices. But this year, the companies might be considering revising their decision regarding the use of sapphire. There are so many other manufacturers making use of the material and Apple is already operating the sapphire glass processing plant in US, Arizona so there is no motivation for Samsung and LG to stay behind.
