“Apple’s iPhone 5S is most certainly being mass manufactured at this exact second, which is normal lead time of two to three months before launch,” Jonathan S. Geller reports for BGR. “What is interesting, however, is obviously what the iPhone 5S is going to feature. What’s going to be different this time? Just an upgraded processor and camera? Most likely. A fingerprint scanner and NFC? Probably. But one thing that could be the most important element of the phone, any phone, has just started to bubble up after being overlooked for years, and that is what material the case is going to be made out of.”
“My prediction is that we are going to see a LiquidMetal [sic] case for the first time on an iPhone,” Geller reports. “We are going to see Apple launch a phone with the most ideal case material in the world, and potentially see the company introduce a sapphire crystal screen, which is also the most ideal material in the world. Not only is Apple going to offer the most amazing hardware that will be impossible for its rivals to replicate, but it has the software to go with it thanks to iOS 7.”
