Speculation around the next Apple product never ends. Recent rumor suggests that Apple’s new iPhone 5 will be made of LiquidMetal. Apple paid $30 million for the rights to use the LiquidMetal technology in 2010. LiquidMetal is a new metallic, glass, substance that stores energy much better than stainless steel or Titanium. This exotic material would allow the device to be thinner, weigh less and more durable.
Based on this ‘LiquidMetal’ rumor and some of the latest rumors regarding the iPhone 5, artist Jon Fawcett of [FUSE]chicken, created some concept pictures of what we can expect from the newest iPhone when it hits stores.
