Apple iPhone 6s certified by China's TENAA revealing dual-core 1.8GHz CPU

Apple iPhone 6s certified by China's TENAA revealing dual-core 1.8GHz CPU
The Apple iPhone 6s has been certified by Chinese regulatory agency TENAA. The agency cited the specs on its website, noting that the device is powered by a dual-core 1.8GHz CPU.  A typo listed the phone as containing 4MB of RAM. The actual amount is 2GB of RAM, and the model that was certified contains 128GB of native storage.

Of course, most of the iPhone 6s specs are well known by now, including the 4.7-inch display, carrying a resolution of 750 x 1334. The  phone's measurements were said by the regulator to be 67.1mm x 138.3mm x 7.1mm. That is .2mm thicker than its predecessor. At 141g, the new model weighs 12g more than last year. The added thickness and weight are both most likely due to the 3D Touch technology stuffed inside the phone.

After seeing all of those handsets from smaller Chinese manufacturers pose for their usual TENAA  portrait, it is somehow strange to see the iPhone 6s say cheese to TENAA's photographer. The series of four photos can be found in the slideshow, below. The good news is that the iPhone 6s is now certified in China (as if there was any doubt) so that it can be released in the country on September 25th.

Thinking Space Grey but not sure. How long will it take Walmart to get some in stock? Got a lot of gift cards save up for nice discount.
My money was ready and then hot water heater went out. Always something throw monkey wrench in your plans.

No need for more than dual-core and 2gb of RAM on a basic device that'll only be used for Facebook, Instagram, and texting.

If that's all you use a phone for then you don't need a high end phone.

Even a mid range deice would be overkill for you.

That's called good design. It's a bit hard to find in Android.

Not really. In fact, Apple design seriously lagged other flagships this past year.

The iPhone 6 is the most comfortable to use design that's been released in years. Can easily use in one hand or two and has no sharp edges whatsoever.

posted on 18 Sep 2015, 00:51 7

38. Penny (Posts: 1647; Member since: 04 Feb 2011)


I very much disagree with this. I find the iPhone 6 to be less comfortable than the 5s due to how thin it is and the fact that the edges are rounded. Generally, when it comes to comfort, you want the back to be slightly rounded so that it conforms to the shape of your hand, and you want the edges to be flat so that you can grip it more securely.

You are absolulty right man, it is the most comfortable to use design although the design is not that appealing in looks when compared to 5s whereas iphone 5s has got killer looks but its not as much as comfortable as iPhone 6/6s.

Thankyou for pointing out this and making me realise that there is somthing good about the design seriously i still hate those camera bump and those antenna bands they could have make it much better and these are the only reasons why i am not buying 6s

iPhone 5S was the best iPhone ever, 6 & 6S? not so much...
i like S6 better... not to rounded nor to sharp, feels more compact despite it's larger screen. The antena lines on iPhone 6 was ugly, in terms of color i prefer black compared to space gray. It's only me or i think 5S feels more solid?

It's the consumer effect. Apple is huge and the most popular so when you have one it feels like you're on the same level as everyone else and you have the best product. You know your Android is better, but in the back of your mind it's that part that wants to be like everyone else and look fancy. Happens to me when I hold my gfs IPhone too!

Or maybe it could be that iPhones and iOS present a simple and clean user experience that is pleasing and effective for those who use it, thus the platform's popularity. Nah, that can't be it...

As android manufacturer tries to simplify things whereas iOS add more feature i think the gap betwen them are closer, but i can't deny even as android fans apple product simply gain more recognition cause it's popular.

1.8 GHz from 1.4 GHz is pretty good improvement. It will give iphone a big boost in single and multi core performance. I would have gone for iphone 6S plus this year if it had been redesigned with better screen to body ratio, amolded screen with higher resolution. Lets see what happens next year.

Dear God...why the fack would you need higher resolution on 5.5"?? Its 401 ppi and RGB...not s**tty pentile...have u seen that display i real life brah?

59. Ruturaj (Posts: 1277; Member since: 16 Oct 2014)


I want to try VR, I guess for that more pixels are better right? And if apple keeps iphone 6 plus size same and increase the screen to body ratio, they would be able to fit larger screen. So I am not exactly asking for higher resolution on 5.5".

Are you stupid or just mske some fun noise tributes to Apple?
Nokia N8 can edit hd files 7 years ago.

No your old PC really cannot. I had to upgrade to a gtx 980ti to edit 4k footage from my gh4 in a decent amount of time.

The iPhone editing a lower quality 4k isn't really that large of a feat.

31. combatmedic870 (Posts: 555; Member since: 02 Sep 2015)


How bitrate does the iPhone record at? What codec? Colors at 6 bit, 8 bit, 10 bit?

You truly cannot expect that the iPhones 4k is going to be up to the gh4 or a7s standards. That would be silly to think.

33. miket1737 (Posts: 2366; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)


not sure of the bit-rate but recording 4K on a smartphone is still pretty impressive regardless whether its a iOS or Android device. the 6S can edit 2 4K streams simultaneously which is impressive imo. i believe the galaxy s6 shoots at around 46-48 mbps bit rate when shooting in 4K, which is a good bit-rate.

40. combatmedic870 (Posts: 555; Member since: 02 Sep 2015)


4k on a smartphone is ok.

So since is can edit 2 streams of 4k....if you buy a 6s or what not. Download some 4k shot from a a7s or a7rII or a gh4 and trying editing it. Just a single stream...if it can do that....I will say that is extremely impressive. I'll have to change my boxers and I'll go and buy one immediately.

yeah dude but i dont think anyone here is that illogical to argue that a smartphone is able to contend in 4k recording vs a DSLR lol, for our own smartphones that are dam thin and fast to do it on the fly, it looks pretty dam awesome on a quad HD AMOLED display from Samsung when viewing it back on my device... but no one is arguing with the fact that DSLR obviously still take much better videos.

36. combatmedic870 (Posts: 555; Member since: 02 Sep 2015)


Don't get me wrong. I'm sure the 4k will look ok(Samsungs is alright I guess lol). Downsized to 1080p, it'll look awesome I'm sure. If it can do that internally....well the would be pretty dang awesome if the software is any good. It really depends on so many things when it comes to this.

I guess I shouldn't have said anything and let people think they can edit real 4k on a 10 year old PC and that the iPhones 4k will be as good as the gh4's. Lol

Apple's A-Series is literally years ahead of any SoC's in the Android space. It's not surprising seeing them approach the performance of a Macbook.

Pretty much this. Android fanboys see nothing but "dual core", but who knows anything about SoC's knows that Apple's A series are far superior to android SoC's.

No. I'm dumping my GS6 in November to get a 64gb 6s+. The last two android phones I've had have gotten worse over time(Z3/GS6) and my GS6 is constantly lagging, even failing to redraw parts of the home screen due to the terrible RAM management. I don't need a 2k or a 4k screen, my eyes can't tell the difference at that distance.

56. arch_angel (Posts: 1651; Member since: 20 Feb 2015)


My GS6 Is Working As Good As It Did When I First Got It Besides The Ram Management Everything Works Fine. But I Agree About 2k And 4k Even Tho I Can Tell The Difference, Its Not Needed. IOS Just Keeps Getting Better And I Don't Feel That Android Is, That's Why I'm Think About Switching, I'm Really Into Mobile Gaming And The iPhone Is The Best Not To Mention The Apple App Store Has More And Better Optimized Games Than The Play Store.
