Apple’s new iPhone 5 design heading to liquidmetal?

The iPhone 4 is much like dipping a rose into liquid nitrogen and dropping it on the floor — and probably one of the bigger complaints about the phone. Now, however, rumors surface that suggest Apple may go liquidmetal on its next iPhone.

There have been discussions, rumors, about Apple’s plans to remove the glass back plate on the next iPhone and moving to a metal material. ETnews reports that Samsung and Apple are looking to incorporate ceramic and liquidmetal materials. Samsung’s Galaxy S3 is eyeballing the ceramic, while Apple is eyeballing the liquid metal for its next iPhone.

The iPhone 4 is a revolutionary product with its new thin design and its metal band surrounding the edge of the phone — which is also the antenna for the phones Bluetooth, cellular and Wi-Fi signals. Apple was bold in demonstrating the strength of the new glass on the iPhone 4 by applying pressure and bowing the glass. Unfortunately the glass did not handle direct impact well, and shattered when dropped.

Still, the report does not mention any changes to the front of the phones’ glass, but there have been rumors of Apple going after stronger glass for the next-gen iPhone. This could suggest that Apple is aiming to change the iPhone up a smudge by incorporating a new type of back plating while enforcing the glass on the front of the phone.

This could also mean that Apple’s next-gen iPhone will have an outer surface that will be smoother using the liquidmetal, but we’ll have to wait and see in the upcoming Worldwide Developers conference (WWDC) held in San Francisco in June this year.
