No Liquidmetal alloy for back casing of next iPhone
| by Aaron Almeida |
A couple of weeks ago the Internet was abuzz with news surrounding the upcoming flagship phone from Apple. News had it that the upcoming handset would feature a breakthrough material called Liquidmetal. The advantages of this new alloy would be that it would make the smartphone to be sturdier, thinner and lighter. The alloy comprises zirconium, titanium, nickel and copper making the surface feel smooth, like liquid. However, in an interview with Business Insider, one of the inventors of this breakthrough alloy, Dr. Atakan Peker, stated that it is unlikely Apple will use this metal for their next iPhone.
Apple may use Liquidmetal in two to four years

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
