Whenever a new smartphone or tablet is launched into the market, a few things follows every launch, every year. First, we see the launch images of the product, then hands-on videos followed by drop tests and then teardown also shows that its a part of the equation as well. While the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has already begun flying off the shelves in Australia, and the folks over at iFixit were in line to grab a unit of iPhone 6 Plus for their customary teardown.
iFixit, the site known for its teardown, reports that the iPhone 6 Plus shares pretty much same interior structure as that of an iPhone 5s. Except for the larger size, iPhone 6 Plus has a striking resemblance and similar layout of an iPhone 5s. The battery is indeed quite bigger, in fact twice the size of an iPhone 5s. The battery specs include 2915mAh, 3.82 V and 11.1 Wh of energy, is almost double the capacity of a iPhone 5s. The battery capacity is in line with the rumors.
Going further deep into the device, iFixit encountered Apple’s all new A8 system on a chip with just 1GB of RAM (Elpida LPDDR3), ARM Cortex-M3 Microcontroller (M8 Motion Coprocessor), NXP 65V10 NFC module + Secure Element. iSight component features 8MP sensor, ƒ/2.2 aperture and an optical image stabilization (for iPhone 6 Plus only).
