No, this is not the new liquid metal iPhone, but a flat metal back that you can buy from cnn.cn, an OEM cellphone parts company from Hong Kong. There are similar flat metal backs that can be found on eBay, but this is one of the few places that sells it with a beveled back. The slight bevel rounds out the back of the phone, making it feel less sharp. It also adds a tough industrial look. For even more durability, adding a bumper and a front screen protector protects your phone further while still managing to keep the iPhone’s refined look.
