Not as easy as you think: Apple has locked up the supply chain for large scale output for some time - possibly as much as over 36 months, but likely at least 18 months.
Samsung and LG both have the capabilities to manufacture flexible display.
so why would they want to use the ancient non-flexible saphire display?
The "problem" faced by Samsung, LG and especially Apple is that there are some die hard who simply refuse to case or screen protector for their phone.
The iPhone5S really really looks and feels nice when you see it and handle it.
It is people and how many times they interact with their phone, some have to have hold onto theirs 24/7
At the end of the day yes to sapphire on my premium Samsung but I am still gonna use a S-Line case and screen protector as I can't believe how beat up they get in just 6 months which is not on the phone
I like the idea a phone in its natural state but I would hate scuffs or any blemish staring at me fo two years
Gutt Grinder, 24 May 2014Im not sure about LG but Samsung will.. LG is more advenced than Samsung in electronic technology especially in Display!
well first of all i really doubt it matters for the prices of upcoming handsets other than the premium ones. u rlly think all the androids r gna get sapphire coating?
think a little
Fanboys here, Fanboys there.. always defending your stuff by who made this first, who made that first blah blah. why dont you just enjoy your toys little kids? Apple and Samsung are simply competing as top brands, and you fankids dont matter. you are just wasting your time
as always... they keep following Apple thread... LMAO... copycats everywhere...
so its ok for iphone to copy water resistance bigger body but dont let other companies copy from iphone yall a bounch of babies
AnonD-168372, 24 May 2014Taste of iFans' own medicine, Apple copied Samsung SII 4.7" screen lol.SII has only 4.3" screen
My Galaxy Note (the original) that I use all the time doesn't have a scratch. Why would I want sapphire if it is expensive? Sapphire sounds jewelerish and might therefore be something that vain Applers fall for.
A big laugh to apple Stupid fanboy who think apple the first one ti invent all.. Apple is just the first one who copy..lol..sapphire display? vertu has it first

samsung rules, 24 May 2014using a sapphire glass display on phone is not copying because if it is then apple copied vertu U know what I mean. Whenever apple is doing something, Samsung just do the same. Just giving apple another reason for a new lawsuit. I think this strategy is agreed on by both sides (apple and Samsung). And while we are talking about them, we are doing a free advertisement for just mentioning those brands because neither of them are stupid and they know exactly how to run business.
