I'll stand in line for that! I really don't care about the strength/hardness of liquid metal. What I do care about is how the material used effects the phone's ability to grab a signal. If it has good battery life, no signal issues, and looks like the rendering you posted, this is going to be Apple's most successful iPhone to date. MONSTER hit.

It occurs to me that there was a rumor floating around before the iPhone 4s release that Sprint had an exclusive on the iPhone 5 for an unspecified period of time. Was that rumor completely de-bunked, or is it still floating around out there?

Never happen. Apple is seemingly past the exclusive stage with their products.

Another thing about the next iPhone, is Apple is allegedly aiming for sub 8mm thickness by using liquid metal and in-cell touch technology. That would be iPod Touch class thinness.

Here's a rendering if Apple goes the 4" route.

Interesting concept. If Apple just stretches the display taller then older apps can just be "letterboxed" rather than scaled, which won't wreck the existing Ecosystem.

Though I would prefer Apple keep the same aspect ratio, and add another .5 diagonal inch to the display, and up the resolution to HD class.

Also I'm having a hard time believing Apple will change the pin connector, though that's easily fixed with adaptors I guess.

Please. Apple will of course sell the 4s+ which will be 0.003mm thinner and 2.045% faster. People will sell their kids for a spot on line to wait for one. 100 days after that Apple will announce the 4s+s which will be 0.002mm thinner than the last one and 1.0007% faster than that. Early adopters will find that when you hold it upside down while skydiving over an active volcano the antenna conks out. Angry fanbois will scream and pout. Apple will announce a fix to that that will require them to publish some more BS and rumors that the 5 will be announced 6 months later than the last completely unfounded rumor but because it's later it will be 0.0001mm thinner and ANOTHER 1.00029% faster than the last fake 5 model they sort of rumored about the last time. Apple market valuation exceeds the GDP of Holland.

I'm with you on this.. Data speeds are horrific here, and being in NM, we get everything almost last. So Sprints LTE will be here when 5G starts rolling out.. I don't think I can do it again. My iPad is on Verizon's LTE, and holy smokes.. Enough said.
