iPhone 5 LiquidMetal Design Update at WWDC 2012 in June
We had heard about there being a redesign to the next generation iPhone, and that it will likely show itself in the Fall 2012. The new design was stated as being a 'new sleek look'. Apple has also recently been reported working with French Designer Philippe Starck for a "Revolutionary" new product for 2012. Will the two reports be dealing with the new statement found regarding the iPhone 5 redesign?
Korean news site etnews is stating that they have it on good word Apple is going to be using a combination of light sturdy metals to create a 'liquidmetal' look and feel to the next generation iPhone (iPhone 5). Not to be confused with the T-1000 from Terminator 2:Judgement Day, the new iPhone 5 casing will be composed of "amorphous metal alloys" as highlighted from the story below;
iPhone5 is likely to take liquid metal, an alloy of zirconium, titanium, nickel, copper and so forth having an outer surface smooth like liquid. The new iPhone is expected to make its debut at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco in June.
Adding to the rumors of a newly designed iPhone 5, there is word that we'll also get to see this device from Apple at their WWDC event in June 2012. If that's the case (see what I did there), then we could be looking at a Q3 launch after all.
