It’s that time of the year again when new iPhone release date nears and rumours about new features and hardware specifications reach an all time high. Apple is widely expected to announce iPhone 6 during a special media event in September. Even though the company tries hard to keep its plan a secret, large scale production in Asia and multiple supply partners makes it difficult for the company to keep its new product lineup a secret.
According to various news reports published in the past, iPhone 6 is expected to be available in two variants, 4.7 inch screen and 5.5 inch screen. Recently Nowhereelse.fr and Macotakara published photos of the purported batteries of 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch iPhone 6. The leaked photos of the battery reveals that the 4.7 inch variant of the iPhone 6 will feature a capacity of 1,810 mAh. In comparison iPhone 5s features 1,560 mAh battery.
5.5 inch variant of the iPhone 6 will feature a capacity of 2,925 mAh. This could certainly provide much longer battery life. Apple’s competitor Samsung has been aggressively targeting iPhone users, referring to them as wall huggers who constantly need to charge their phones.
Increase in battery life could prove to be a major selling point for Apple’s upcoming smartphone. Since the addition of 3G, 4G and LTE and retina displays, iPhones have become much more power hungry and its difficult to go through the entire day without keeping a charger handy.
As always the authenticity of these leaked photos can’t be confirmed however, the part numbers, dimensions of the battery in the photo and analyst reports published in the past seem to point towards better battery life in the new iPhone 6.
Apple is rumoured to hold iPhone 6 media event on Tuesday, September 9. Are you looking to buy the new iPhone 6? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
