2018 could be the year for unveiling of diamond screen smartphone. We are living in digital era where a phone’s sturdiness and durability is a hot discussed topic, particularly with the arrival of large bezelless screens. As nowadays the screens are more possibly to break due to being the most fragile part of the phone, and in order to shield we covered up them with a screen protector.
However, the powerful and most durable displays used so far are based on sapphire glass, which can take a lot of penalty without breaking.
Although, you might ever have heard of the 24K gold plated iPhone but have you yet seen a smartphone screen made of diamond? Now it seems the right time for right entry the idea can be turn out into realty this year, thanks to AKHAN Semiconductors.
With the manufacturing of AKHAN Semiconductor which previously grows diamonds for use in electronics now are planning the view that diamond glass will be stronger, harder, and cleaner than all the other screens.
The screen would be called ‘Mirage Diamond Glass’ and Khan says that one of the smartphone companies will be selected for establishing the diamond screens.
An analyst named Ben Stanton, with Canalys talked about diamond glass saying,
“Screen technology is extremely marketable. And most smartphone vendors are struggling to find a point of differentiation for their devices, especially in hardware.”
AKHAN Semiconductor states that the manufacturing will cover diamond glass for amid 10 and 30 million phones and up to 1 million screens for smart watches and fitness bands.
Due to strong factor, the upcoming diamond screens will be even better than the Lab-made sapphire crystals which are usually used in aerospace, photography and watch making.
It will more durable than the Sapphire crystals which are currently being used in some of the latest smartphone screens like HTC U Ultra, U11, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
The pricing factor would be relatively high as the diamond glass will be used in mostly flagship phones devices so don’t even suppose it to be offered in cheaper phones at all.
