iPhone 6's Durable Sapphire Glass Display Confirmed for Huawei Ascend P7 Update

By Gary Cutlack on at

Chinese upstart Huawei may beat Apple to the market with a sapphire glass display, with the maker said to be equipping a future version of its Ascend P7 series with the new toughened screen tech.

Confirmation came via Huawei's own chairman Yu Chengdong, who showed off a current-gen Ascend P7 with a sapphire display to Chinese news source 21st Century Business Herald, while claiming the maker would release "shocking" products in the future. Perhaps it's also planning to release a separate, pricier sapphire model of the P7; a strategy we've heard Apple may be planning to follow with its next iPhone. [MyDrivers via TechieNews]
