Will the iPhone 5 be getting a new look?

News from Korea indicates the next generation iPhone will have a new design–and be made of completely new materials. It’s rumored the next iPhone iteration will be made of LiquidMetal, an alloy of titanium, zirconium, nickel, and copper. LiquidMetal, which Apple bought exclusive rights for use in consumer electronics in 2010, is stronger and more durable (think less scratches and dents) than titanium and steel, the current materials used in consumer electronics. The use of LiquidMetal would also allow for a thinner, smaller design without compromising on durability.
