The Apple iPhone 5 rumor mill is at full swing today and we’ve got more images of upcoming new iPhone and its taller but thinner battery. Pictured alongside the current battery powering the iPhone 4S, the new juicer seems larger but due to its thinner sizes, at 0.8 ounces it’s actually lighter than the 0.96-ounce iPhone 4S battery, according to the latest leaks coming from repair site iResq.
The new iPhone 5 battery will be of 5.45 watt-hour capacity, at 3.8 volt compared to the 5.3 watt-hour and 3.7-volt 4S juicer.
With the expected inclusion of a larger screen and LTE radio on the new iPhone, we don’t expect Apple to bump up the actual battery life, rather this new larger battery will be used to keep the iPhone 5 battery life consistent with what we see on the 4S.
