Take these pics with a grain of salt...
We’re still months away from the launch of the next generation iPhone, but a series of new pictures have leaked on the internet that claim to show Apple’s next smartphone flagship.
There are obviously no “official” specs to go on at this time, so you’ll just have to settle for the following images:
The next generation iPhone is expected to retain its Touch ID fingerprint authentication system while adding a larger, higher resolution screen (possibly 5+ inches). Although no one knows what the exact resolution of the display would be, don’t be surprised to see Apple
settle on something around 1280x2272
(exactly twice that of the iPhone 5/5S/5C).
We’re also assuming that Apple will throw in a custom A8 processor as a follow-up to the current A7, and let’s hope that Apple has decided to
include at least 2GB of system RAM
flagship iPhone 5S
only includes 1GB of RAM while flagship machines from competitors offers at least 2GB).

Interesting. Thanks for the link.
So the stuff has been around since the '60s, is used in tennis rackets, cell phone cases, golf clubs and is made out to be a wonder material... leaving me wondering what's wrong with it? Does it shatter, scratch or feel cheap?
It seems like a great idea. I'd love a phone that's all antenna. :)

The grain of salt here is that the article is from 2010 and is basically the inventor of Liquidmetal saying "this would totally fix the iPhone 4 antennagate issues".
Apple does have a perpetual license to use the technology, and they did ship some iPhones with Liquidmetal SIM card ejectors as part of a test program. The problem turns out to be that it's extremely difficult to manufacture the stuff in large sheets, as it can't be manufactured like normal metal (apparently the sheets would shear?)
It seems like the company Liquidmetal set up to work on their partnership with Apple did come up with a solution to this, though, as they filed a patent for a technique in mid-2013 that involves manufacturing the metal more like sheets of glass that seems to resolve the issues. That means it's probably unlikely we'll see anything in the iPhone 6, but it's not impossible.
