Sapphire based screens for scratch free smartphones

The most annoying factor of smartphone is the durability of its screen. The scratch free mobile phones are still a dream but the introduction of Sapphire in the mobile technology could make a revolution.

Technologies used on smartphones are changing day by day and people are just wandering for the most advanced one. There are still some issues regarding the primary screen of the phones especially screen scratches. People all around the world are annoyed with this unavoidable situation of their smartphones.

There are many experiments conducted for developing a scratch resistant smartphone and the results are optimistic. The latest answer for scratch resistance screen is Sapphire. Sapphire stands second in its hardness after Diamond. This precious material is going to make a revolutionary change in the mobile technology. Sapphire is now widely used for making the glass of precious watches.

The hand set maker of China, Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, expect to use Sapphire in their exclusive limited phones. The main feature of Sapphire is its thickness and this nature makes this unprecedented material a challenging one for smartphone making.

The introduction of Huawei P7 Sapphire edition brings some hope in this field as this phone is equipped with Sapphire crystal glass. Majority of the big handset makers in the world are running after raw suppliers of Sapphire and this shows the impact and possibilities of the material.

Disadvantages of Sapphire based smartphone screens

The decision of Apple to use hubbub over Sapphire in the earlier iPhone created some kind of disappointment in the Sapphire sector. But Apple revealed that the introduction of Sapphire would increase the total weight of the iPhone and the failure of light transmission is an added disadvantage of the material. The adaptability is another problem as Sapphire is hard to transform in many forms compared to glass. The remedy to this problem is to make weightless and thinner type Sapphire for the mobile industry. The experiments are being conducted and good results are expected. But the question is how long we should wait for a quality smartphone screen made completely out of Sapphire?

According to the experts, Sapphire would be the key element in the future mobile technology and industry watchers are ready to put their money on this precious natural element. The introduction of Sapphire in the name of Apple could have created sensational results. But the decision of Apple seduced many big giants to put their attention over sapphire in a big manner.

The availability of the material is another challenging factor and Sapphire distributors are trying to make some changes in this matter. Once Sapphire gets involved in the market, scenario could be changed a lot and we can expect the wide use of this natural material in the mobile industry.

The fact that Gorilla glass has some clear advantage over Sapphire in its adaptability and that is the main reason Apple chose the latter for its new iPhone. The density factor is the most challenging one (Sapphire is 30 % more than glass) and this issue needs to be solved. Glass can be converted to extremely thin sheets and offers more design opportunities. This is the place where Sapphire fails now a days and if this problem is resolved, we can expect Sapphire revolution in the mobile technology. Let's hope for the best.
