 No, HTC One metal casing were from mold as well. So it doesn't have to be Liquid Metal.
Because Memory today uses far less power then 4 - 5 years ago? Honestly, technology continue to improve, but price and storage density isn't the only thing that matters. The NAND within your phone has gotten faster. The Memory in iPhone has been using lower and lower power in the pass three generation. All these prices would have drop so much if our Battery Tech get a sudden 10x jump.  But reality is we dont have anything on roadmap that sees substantial battery...
If, Apple decided to put Sapphire ( expensive ) and Liquid Metal Body, then there could be a rise of at least $20-$25 BOM.    But both seems so far away from mass production I dont see these as the reason to rise price.   The most likely thing I say, would be Apple decide to drop 16GB from its Flagship Model. So iPhone 6 will start at 32GB.   And if you want 16GB you will have to choose the mid / lower tier.
 There are few more things that Apple could improve even with the thinner package. So not to worry.
 Yes, Since the Old iPhone is also 4.6mm thicker, so the total added distance for your thumb is still roughly the same as the largest iPhone first produced. While a 21:9 screen are possible, I make this assuming purely based on engineering. I think the design of a phone with 21:9 will looks fairly ugly, unless they get rid of the Top and Buttom part. ( Which doesn't fit the schematics ).
 Well HP already has an Fanless Ultrabook running with Core i5 Haswell. Yes, Poor HP gets no coverage or reviews, it was a pretty decent built machine. So you can be assured only better performance or even lower power from Broadwell. And Intel has since introduce SDP, scenario design power. Which is different to TDP.
Well incidentally the largest iPhone was about the same size at 62.1mm. So I think 63.2mm is plausible, until Apple can manage to get zero brezel.   I have always thought the next iPhone screen Ratio will likely change to 21:9, in order to get larger screen without getting too wide. Which sounds just about right with the measures.
To me, the patents are more like a tools used against Samsung more then having any actual value itself. May be those patents are really useless, or may be they are generic. But there should be no disagreement that Samsung Copied Apple, from design to trade dress. And many other little things and details. But these are hard to argue, and sometimes experience ,"trade dress" design are hard to explain and put into context infront of court. Hence why these patents are...
Apart from the initial cost of buying / building the site and equipment. Datacenter is just all about cooling and Server usage which equals to electricity usage. Apple can afford to throw some money in it for renewable electricity. Other then small maintenance fees Apple basically gets to run its Datacenter for free.   Which comes to think about it. The reason why Apple has been relatively slow in its DC expansion, is purely because they need to buy its ways into...
The slide were on some Chinese site. Since not many other western media were publishing report on IDF China. Anand had no news to confirm either. Not Braswell, which many media were quoting as Skylake ( wrong ). But a Slide on possibility of Fanless PC with the Broadwell 14nm running at ~15W TDP range. So basically you dont get any CPU performance improvement from the previous Haswell CPU, you get 50% improvement in GPU, and a large drop of TDP.
