There are new details about the technology going into the iPhone 5.

Reports say the new iPhone will arrive in October and will be created using materials never seen before.

A Korean technology website says the company is expected to use a liquid metal, making the new phone thinner, lighter and a lot more impact resistant. The report says the outer surface of the phone will be smooth, like liquid.
