    So the leaks are out so what about this for a theory to the silver/blue one:

    Silver means the cheaper 8GB/16GB model and the blue could be a liquid metal one maybe £100 more expensive?

    What "blue" one? I'm pretty sure it's just the photograph that makes it appear "blue".

    Probably is but it's most definitely NOT the same metal used in iPhone 4 or 4s... it has to be liquid metal.

    Blue/silver/dark grey whatever it is but the picture shows a different colour to the silver.

    Silver for white, black/blue for the black phone.

    "liquid metal" probably would have few benefits over an aluminum back and probably be much more expensive. Plus, you can't get that anodized aluminum look from liquid metal.

    at the extreme most you may see a small component being made out of liquid metal this year. The phone itself (like the casing that was leaked) will not be made out of liquid metal this year.

    There is a blue iPhone. It's the imaginary one that people keep dreaming of, instead of taking the red iPhone and facing reality :D:D:D:D:D

    I thought I read that the liquid metal they acquired was for use to build Apple stores? Not positive.
