[Rumor] Newest iPhone to feature version with sapphire glass?

Apple may be giving an all new meaning to “high end” when they release their new devices in early September.  According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Apple may be releasing a version of the new iPhone 6 with a sapphire glass display.  Sapphire crystal is only below diamond in its hardness rating and could be a big step forward in reducing scratches on mobile device screens and the need for screen protectors.

The rumor is that only the more expensive versions of the devices (both the 4.7″ and 5.5″ new iPhone) will feature this tech, and it could cause the price of the already pricey device to increase even further.  There are both pros and cons to this type of display (check out this great article here for more info) but this would still represent an innovation that has never before been seen by a major hardware manufacturer.  
As the announcement for the next iPhone should be coming in the next few weeks, more details are sure to come.  Is anyone pining away for a larger iPhone?  Let us know below in the comments section!
