Marques Brownlee from The Tech Block has shown off what appears to be a purported iPhone 6 sapphire crystal display, acquired through the help of connected Apple parts leaker Sonny Dickson.
Brownlee’s hands-on puts the alleged sapphire display through scratch tests with keys, a knife and various forms of bending. The display, which is also very clear, holds up impressively and he concludes it can’t be scratched and most likely will not need a screen protector.

Earlier rumours claimed not all versions of the iPhone 6 would use sapphire glass, but according to Brownlee, his 4.7-inch part seemingly suggests both larger versions will support the stronger and more durable crystal display.
Earlier this morning, we saw another hands-on with a sapphire display from Sonny Dickson, but the quality of the test wasn’t as thorough as Brownlee’s.
If this part is indeed legitimate, that’s some pretty impressive glass which looks to blow Corning’s Gorilla Glass out of the water.
