Rumor: iPhone 5 To Utilize New Case and Touch Technology?

These rumors actually seem like they could hold some weight, and I really hope they are true because they sound awesome!

The first one is the use of “LiquidMetal” in the new iPhone. So a Terminator iPhone you say? No, according to the company’s website, the material is an alloy that combines over twice the strength of titanium with the processing efficiency of plastics. Scientists have developed the technology where our metal alloys behave similar to plastics. Could the next iPhone be getting rid of the plastic cases that have been used in the latest iPhone’s in order to use this technology? Sounds like quite a cool feature to me.

The other rumor is another very cool option that Apple has to choose from, according to DigiTimes, the next iPhone could feature “in-cell multi-touch technology”, what is that? Well basically it is a technology where the touch feature is built directly into the screen instead of a separate layer over the top of the LCD panel, allowing the screen to be clearer and more responsive, thinner and lighter!

Both of these technologies can give the iPhone that much-needed new look that we are hoping for, as well as having practical advantages as well.

So there you have it, a couple of rumors that could very well turn out to be true and I hope they do!

What do you want in the next iPhone? Leave a comment below and let us know.

  1. Yes please!

    I want a harder case, slightly bigger screen and slimmer design. Not asking for too much. But that’s where I feel the 4 sucks. Glass case? Breaks so easily. .5″ bigger screen without physical size changes would be great. Thinner profile would always be nice but I won’t hold my breath.

  2. Only problem would be whether or not it would maintain the exact same resolution. Otherwise I imagine a lot of apps and games breaking.
