iPhone 5 rumors: Apple’s next smartphone could feature Liquidmetal technology

A new report states that the next-generation iPhone could be made from a material called liquidmetal.

According to Korean site ETNews.com, Apple acquired the rights to use liquidmetal in its products for around $20 million from Liquidmetal Technologies.

The site claims that the iPhone 5 will be made of zirconium, titanium, nickel, copper “and so forth” and it will have a “surface smooth like liquid.”

The material is very durable, light, it’s scratch resistant and it is said to be as smooth as liquid or glass to the touch.

This also means that a handset using the technology is less likely to be broken when dropped.

So far Apple has used Liquidmetal’s material for the iPhone 4 SIM card ejector tool.

The site also writes that the next iPhone 5 will be introduced in June at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference.

However, market watchers believe that a September-October timeframe is more likely to be chosen by Apple for the release of its sixth-generation iPhone.
