iPhone 6 video proves screen withstands knife-stabs and key-scrapes

A second video testifying to the iPhone 6 screen’s hard-wearing properties has leaked online. And the good news is that the latest clip makes the display look even more robust than the last one.

Yesterday, leaks kingpin Sonny Dickson was behind a video showing the screen from the 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6 being bent and shaped like putty and easily withstanding the punishment being thrown its way.

Today, Dickson is the source of another clip wherein the display is pushed even further. This time we see it being stabbed with a kitchen knife, a la shower scene in Psycho, and come out the other end unscathed.

Not satisfied with that, we also see it scratched with keys and see the clip’s presenter Jason Marques stand on the screen and bend it aggressively. Once again, the display comes up intact and free of marks.

The clip appears to further vindicate Apple’s rumoured decision to replace the Corning Gorilla Glass it has favoured since the iPhone 4 with sapphire for its next-gen screens, which look to be just as robust.

The latest sighting of the iOS 8–powered iPhone 6 components comes amid a swirl of rumours around the handset, which is set to showcase a new, more rounded design this time around.

Apparently set to land in September in 5.5-inch and 4.7-inch options, the handset’s spec sheet purportedly takes in an improved version of the Touch ID fingerprint scanner and a better camera.
