HTC and LG to use sapphire on next year's flagship models?38
Sapphire is one of the most scratch proof materials available, and the latest speculation includes the use of sapphire on the home button of both the HTC One 2 and the LG G3. That could mean that both rumored flagship models will come with a fingerprint scanner in the home button. The HTC One max is available with a fingerprint scanner on the back, one that requires the user to swipe a finger over the screen. The Taiwan based manufacturer could decide to switch to a scanner similar to the one on the iPhone 5s, that doesn't require the user to move his finger. Additionally, a rumor popped up last week, stating that Korea based LG would employ a fingerprint scanner on its next flagship phone.
