In a recent report, Korean website ETNews claims that according to their industry sources Apple will adopt new unprecedented materials for it’s next generation iPhone. This new model of iPhone will be thinner, ligher and highly resistant to external impacts. The new material that Apple is said to be using for the new iPhone (dubbed as iPhone 5) is called liquid metal. The liquid metal is said to be an alloy of zirconium, titanium, nickel, copper and has smoother outer surface.
Other than iPhone 5′s materials, ETNews in it’s report says that unlike iPhone 4S the new iPhone will make it’s debut at WWDC in June.
This report by ETNews is highly unreliable, and we are not getting our hopes high on this one. Many analysts believe that Apple has already shifted it’s iPhone launch cycle from June to September or October like it did with the iPhone 4S and releasing a new iPhone in such a short span of time might hurt it’s business.
