Apple gains patent for embedding sapphire displays into LiquidMetal chassis

A new patent sounds like the beginnings of an Apple fan's dream iPhone, but we have at least one concern with the line of thinking that is present in the filing. Today, Apple was granted a patent that had been filed back in 2008 titled "Methods and systems for integrally trapping a glass insert in a metal bezel", but in plain English, it is a plan to embed a sapphire display into a LiquidMetal chassis...

Keep dreaming that copycats fans will ever have a chance to use such a technology. Guess what? Apple will sue those thieves. And I'm really fascinate to see tear of those Apple haters. :)

Like apple hasn't copied anything... @lampirya typical blind isheep. By the way Android offers more things that apple can't produce.

pls define "offer"? for lagdroid fans, it should be replaced with "copy". And I don't give a f*ck about those useless things that your copycats firms give you such as heart rate sensor. LOL

Then I bet you hate the notification bar, and the quick toggles, the new lockscreen, the livewallpaper on the iOS 7

iOS 7 has been the most innovative os in term of UI and speed. don't be jealous with our friendly os, just settle lag on your lagdroid first. :)

HTC M8, Note 3, G2 and Z2 laugh at the term lagdroid. So tell me, how's that bootleg notification center working?

Try 8 ball pool game, you'll see the different performance between the iPhone and the Note 3. Undeniably, the android-running devices (even the Z2, M8 or etc) still graphically lag behind the iOS device. Accept it, I saw my friend's Note 3 playing already. No biased here. :)

Only 8 ball pool game? How about the laggy iPhone 5 when playing Subway Surfers, or even Flappy Bird? Have you ever tried it? Just remember my previous iPhone 5 lag on the earlier iOs 7 builds. The Z2, M8, S5 owners only laugh when read your comments.

flappy bird plays perfect on a 3gs, let alone a 5, you're full of it, pal.

Played it on a Nexus 5, no lag at all. So must be you.

Nexus = Note 3? Hush, gramps, you're making yourself look silly. time for meds and a nap.

Undeniably, the android-running devices (even the Z2, M8 or etc) still graphically lag behind the iOS device. Seems Nexus 5 is an Android-running device as well. Reading is an art lost and no need to lower yourself by name calling. It shows lack of intelligence.

Stop lying, ios 7 LAGS too. No 64bit and optimization sh*t.

Stop spreading nonsense here, kiddo. the 64 bit was first introduced by Apple, and soon your king of plastic samsung will copy it too.

it's not copying, blind iSh*ep.. sooner or later, the smartphone trends will implement the 64bit.. iPhone is only the first..

You cant copy usage of 64 bit processing - its normal evolutionary step for smartphones. Secondly the architecture of 64 bit was allready in the market, just no point of implementing it, when nobody has actual use of it. The fact that 1 manufacturer brought the "first 64bit processor in smartphone" marks just the step in smartphone development, where 64 bit starts to make sense. You have seriously 0 arguements in your posts, just bashing, while using classic "hater" vocabulary.

Yeah totally agree! I was impressed that Apple had taken the first step of bringing the 64bit processor onto smartphone.. But if there will be another 64bit smartphone, it's not a copycat..

lol Apple introduced 64bit?

If you want to be technical, Linux was the first OS that introduced 64 bit OS and not Apple. Microsoft introduced the first Window with 64 bit later in 2001 and Apple didn't even introduce 64 bit until 2003. Apple finally beat the Android to the punch after so many years by introducing the 64 bit in the iOS. However, Apple loves taking the back seat and watch what other people can do first then either buy the idea or copy them. Just face it. Apple didn't even have multitasking in its iOS until iOS 7 and it's not even comparable to Android's multitasking let alone what Samsung Galaxy Note line can do. Not saying Apple doesn't build great product, but I'm just saying they haven't came out with anything that can wow anyone since the first iPhone with touch screen back in 2007.

He meant in mobile, you dolt.

I know what he meant, but he wasn't 100% accurate on his comment. Technicality, my friend. Sorry to say this, but by having 64 bit OS isn't that impressive. 64 bit OS has been around for a while. Just because Apple is the first company introduced 64 bit OS to a mobile platform doesn't really mean anything. Also, by replying my comment with one liner, prove more you are a dolt than me.

I consider android a "laggy, not so fancy dumb downed device for morons". ;)

Apple is a thief too, only problem is that apple cannot be fined on standard essential patents... read complete verdict of recent case, apple is also fined for copying... but you ifans consult ispecialist instead of eye specialist and thats why you cant read fully... bunch of blind bas***ds
