As the unveiling of Apple’s next generation iPhone launch approaches, we’ve begun to see photos of leaked components every now and then. There has been lately about the size of battery that iPhone 6 will house inside its larger body. Nowhereelse, a French website, has published some photos of what they claim is the internal battery that Apple is going to put inside the larger iPhone 6 body.
The published photo that purportedly depicts and iPhone 6 battery, shows an increased capacity of 1,810mAh, which will be a modest increase over the current battery capacity found in iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. A previous report had made a similar claim of iPhone 6 featuring a larger battery pack between 1,800 and 1,900 mAh, a modest improvement over the 1,570 mAh battery in the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c.
If the report turns out to be true, iPhone 6 will have a larger battery as compared to its predecessors, but still it’d be smaller than the flagship smartphones offered by the competitors such as Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8. However, Apple is known for its polished and optimized software and with iOS 8 just around the corner, Apple will make the iPhone 6 as power efficient as possible.
Remember that a larger body housing a larger battery doesn’t guarantee an extended battery time because with larger phone comes the larger display which consumes much battery power. So, it’ll be challenging for Apple to introduce a modest bump in battery capacity, powering a larger display and keeping the phone power efficient.
iPhone 6 is rumored to launch in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display sizes. The expected unveiling date is said to be somewhere in September for the 4.7-inch model. However, the 5.5-inch variant may not launch until 2015 during to manufacturing constraints.
