Apple may be using liquid metal on the upcoming iPhone 5 to replace its glass screen, according to a report from a Korean publication called ETNews on Wednesday, April 18, 2012.
Citing “industry sources,” ETNews claimed Apple will create a liquid metal alloy of titanium, zirconium, copper and nickel to create an “outer surface smooth like liquid.”
“The next flagship phones of [Apple and Samsung] are expected to adopt unprecedented materials for their main bodies, that is, ceramic for the Galaxy S3 and liquid metal for iPhone 5, both being thin, light and highly resistant to external impacts. The new phase of the rivalry is because neither one of them can get a decisive edge over the other solely with its OS and AP specifications, features or design,” ETNews‘ Kim In-Soon was quoted as saying.
Reports also said that the iPhone 5 is expected to be released at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco in June.
