While Apple is expanding its production of sapphire glass, other manufacturers start growing interest in alternative material to develop for the screen protector. So Huawei is already working on a Sapphire Version of Ascend P7, the current flagship of the portfolio of the manufacturer from China. A price for the model is not yet available, however, compared to Engadget mentioned employee Huawei that the sapphire smartphone will be available in limited quantities in their own online store in China. The date has already been decided in September, at least for the first wave of delivery.
In addition, Huawei, other Chinese companies are already working on the models, with sapphire glass, including Xiaomi and Vivo. It can be assumed that due to the cost of the sapphire model of Ascend P7 will be much more expensive. A wide availability is virtually ruled out. Nothing will probably change to the technical specifications of the Sapphire Edition of Huawei Ascend P7, which continues the famous 5-inch display with 2 GB RAM and the Kirin 910T quad-core processor would be housed in the smartphone. A release outside of China is also classified as unlikely. The first smartphone for the mass market, which relies on sapphire glass, but probably the upcoming iPhone 6, Apple.
