5.5 inch "Apple iPhone 6L" to sport a 2915mAh battery; 4.7 inch iPhone 6 to carry an 1810mAh cell

5.5 inch
Some more information about the upcoming 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch Apple iPhone 6 variants was revealed on Friday. First of all, thanks to pictures purportedly showing the batteries for both models, the cell on the 4.7 inch unit will be 1810mAh. The battery for the larger 5.5 inch iPhone 6 shows a capacity of 2915mAh. The more power-laden cell for the phablet is not a surprise, considering that larger screens require more energy to run. The smaller, 1810mAh battery had been leaked last month, but this is the first time that we have had an idea about the capacity of the cell for the iPhone phablet.

The word out of Taiwan is that the 4.7 inch version of the handset will be called the Apple iPhone 6, while the larger model will be known as the Apple iPhone 6L. This contradicts a story from earlier Friday, that credited upset Apple executives with the notion that the iPhone 6 moniker would not be used for the new phones.

New pictures leaked on Friday also show off the logic board for both models, and the display panels for both iPhone versions. A close up of the iPhone phablet shows a more rounded corner than what is seen on the 4.7 inch unit. Check out all of the leaked photos by checking on the slideshow below.

Alpha WHO????
This in Russia is not Samsung flagship. Don't you know that?
Or you really admit that iPhone 6 can compare ONLY with mid-range Samsung phones?

I'm telling you right now, we WILL NOT see any price increases. The only price variation will come from the added iPhone "Pro" (5.5") line starting at $299/$749.

I still think we could see the price increases go down for each storage bump from $100 to $50. I also don't think we'll see purely sapphire displays. They will utilize a sapphire coated material to retain some of the benefits of sapphire and keep costs down.

Even if the BOM increases by $10-$15, Apple's profit margins will still fall in the 60% range. Margins will be similar or slightly higher on the 32 GB and 64 GB models EVEN IF they reduce the cost of the storage bump from $100 to $50.

And I'm sure their margins will be even better on the 5.5" version.

This seems legit
iPhone 6 (4.7") - No sapphire

16 GB $199/$649
32 GB $249/$699
64 GB $299/$749

iPhone 6 (5.5") - Sapphire

16 GB $299/$749
32 GB $349/$799
64 GB $399/$849

Whilst your comments are well presented they will all prove to be dashed hopes

re prices you quote

Apple eg $649 is the current price of the IP5S, this will NOT drop across the board by any significant amount

Also the base prices of the 4.7" and 5.5 inch have already been leaked by a network as $850 and $1012 which clearly are increase.
Contract free unsubsidised prices $850 & 1$1012

Apple have been in negotiation with the US networks to increase the front end price by $100 which so far have been rejected but networks may have to relent and ALL front end cost go up by $100....

The networks still have to buy the Iphone at cost less any discount offered by Apple so if the $100+ will have to be added to the monthly tariff. the newtowrk are not going to wear a $100 loss on each iPhone

It is pretty obvious that the iPhone 5.5" will get a price hike and since apple has asked for a 100$ increase of price so I think that Apple is definitely talking about the 5.5" phablet. Don't judge the present circumstances with respect to the devices released in the past as apple has never released two high end devices simultaneously. We will have to wait a while for that. According to the rumors that have been heard and seen so far, I think that the 4.7" iPhone will be released at the same price as the iPhone 5s or will be a little cheaper as Apple has to provide some window for the price of the iPhone 5.5" which will be a lot more expensive.

Note that the iPhone 4.7" is still starting from 199$/649$ so technically the price has not been lowered.

Oh did I noticed that when they last time increased the battery by 16% they went to battery life stratosphere with iPhone 3GS to iPhone 4 transition, even though the 3GS was rather poor ? And btw, which flagship phone increased their battery size by 16% compared to their predecessor this year ?

An increase of 16% battery life from mediocre to slightly less mediocre. Everything else is doing is 3-4 days with 1080p+ screens, yet Apple iPhones have 2 days battery on sub-HD. Samsung has those 'wall hugger' ads for a reason.

25. Iodine (Posts: 500; Member since: 19 Jun 2014)


Heh, I would like to see you how you use your 1080p phone for 3 days without recharging, even though it would be rather boring...

And the resolution doesn't mean anything, the power compustion of the display does. iPhone got a very power hungry display, a chip that is on the very top, even after a year, even a separate LTE modem yet it last just tad less than other phones on a far smaller battery.

I had the LG3 for 14 days, I couldn't get 12 hours on the phone. I rolled back to my Note 3, which gets 16 hours of use with battery left. I put cases on my phones, so my iPhone has a Mophie which out last any Android device I have ever owned.

For a 4.7" display I was hoping for a 2000maH battery at least. My brother's iPhone 5s barely lasts a day with moderate usage and dies in the early evening with heavy usage.

Still, I'll wait and see. Should everything seems good after a couple of months then maybe I'll get myself an iPhone.

I tell ya that you smart

12. Taters (Posts: 3534; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)


The battery life on the Alpha is supposedly fine with 20nm process. And no Android isn't harder on battery life. Android phones had worse battery life before because they didn't have 3.5 in screens that were way less than 720p and no multitasking.

Now that Apple has semi multi tasking and a higher res screen, the OS should be pretty comparable.

The iPhone will have a 20nm SOC, and a custom one, at that. I think I would take 1800+maH on the iPhone over that capacity on a TW device with stock ARM silicon.

You're missing the point.

Samsung have been sued by APPLE 3 times for copying, this time it IS deliberate

DO YOU THINK ALL THE SAMSUNG EXECS FAILED TO NOTICE THAT THE ALPHA (& name ALPHA) looked like an iPhone?

BIG CLUE
32GB non expandable memory when have same NOT included a microSD

here is the thing Samsung have pre-empted Aplle and released a 4.7" Metallic ANDROID iPhone

further more unless the rumours are FALSE, you can upgrade from the 4.7" iphone to the Alpha

Only if it had a non user replaceable battery

Samsung saying it was in the S5 family...please.

Who has it upset the most Samsung
Who will buy it when there near identical ( 8MP camera again) iphone 6 4.7" is released.

Samsung is offering Apple a BIGGER upgrade

6L? Ugh, what a horrible name. Wish they would go with the Pro and Air names. If the 6L name is true, and the leaked pictures of those fat antenna lines on the back are true, I think this is a huge step down in terms of design. I'm hoping the Spigen picture of the iPhone 6 is real because I think that looks MUCH better.

No iPhone will ever be called 'Pro' it's astoundingly hilarious that people think that will happen. It's gonna likely be iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L. Next year it will be iPhone 6S and iPhone 6LS. Apple will never say 'iPhone Pro S' or 'iPhone Proer' nor will there be 'iPhone Air' 'iPhone Air S' or 'iPhone Airier'. There is no iPhone for professionals, they all will always have the maximum specs, and a professional can choose whatever size device they want.

P.S. The naming is almost entirely marketing, and iPhone Pro would be the worst marketing POSSIBLE. Nothing would be more stupid/confusing/infuriating to customers. By the way, the only reason they are making different sizes is because people don't all want the same sized screen. There will be no or next to no differences in specs. HamzAmin is offline :) Peace

More like you are

Try visiting techsites and Cpu websites more.

Try using a Exynos4410 or a below powered cpu on the S5 or S4, you will see more lags.

Try root your S4, and under clock the Cpu to 1.5Ghz or below. Laaaaaaags.

Experiment before calling others stupid
