iPhone 5 Liquidmetal Concept is Gorgeous (Photos)

There have been rumors in regards to a possible Liquidmetal design on Apple’s iPhone 5 and one designer decided to make those rumors a reality and the result is one of the most gorgeous iPhone 5 concepts yet.

The concept is from French designer Antoine Brieux, courtesy of Redmond Pie, and it depicts an iPhone sporting a Liquidmetal design which would give the phone strength while retaining a thin and light form factor.

Apple has also been rumored to be making the next iPhone thinner and lighter than the company’s previous model of iPhone, the iPhone 4S.

Brieux’s concept is called the iPhone LM aka iPhone Liquidmetal, and along with its new design, it sports a 4.5-inch display and a virtual home button. All of Apple’s previous iPhone models have had a physical home button.

We have seen what we believe to be the iPhone 5’s physical home button leak out which all but crushes any chance of a virtual home button such as this.

The iPhone LM also sports a 10MP camera, an embedded SIM card, and a 7.9mm thin design.

And while we have specifications for a concept phone, the actual specifications of the next iPhone remain completely uncertain at this point.

The device is widely believed to have 4G LTE capabilities as Apple launched its latest version of the iPad with 4G LTE support. There have also been rumors about a bump in screen size, possibly to 4-inches, and whispers about an A5X processor possibly being on board.

It will likely also be running Apple’s upcoming iOS 6 operating system, software that the company will likely show off this summer at WWDC.

    Heck yeah I would if it had a 4.5 inch screen. Can’t go from a 4.65 inch display to a 4 inch display no matter how cool the phone is. SGSIII or iPhone 5? Hmmm….

    Needs to be at least a 4.5 screen for me to replace my iPhone. A 4 inch screen is old news today. 

  4. Apple is the best says

    That would kill all of the other smartphones. I would buy that the first day it came out

    If only. Just once I’d like to see a mobile phone company go with a concept that’s more beautifully designed than their own product. It would be a bold and shrewd move that I would definitely respect. This concept above BLOWS all others away. I would buy two.
