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

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

Don't really care about the battery capacity, I care more about the battery life. As long as that is increased, it's fine. I don't think that's impossible, remember the iPad Air in which Apple increased the speed and battery life while reducing the capacity.

This is different The iPhone5s has a 1560mAh battery and 4" DISPLAY SCREEN The 4.7 iPhone6 has an 1810mAh battery THE ACTUAL DISPLAY HAS INCREASED BY 38% THE BATTERY INCREASE IS 16% SO under half I have no direct knowledge of the iPad air improvement but no doubt this question will be asked on 09/09/14 as to whether or not this is less

You cannot justify this fact by calculating the screen size to battery size ratio. According to my wit the battery timing of iPhone 4.7" will be 2-3 hours better than the iPhone 5s.

Okay I'm getting the 6L if anything. WTF apple why couldn't you put a 2100 battery in the 6? Probably the 6 will go about 7+ hours usage time given that the 5s goes around 6+ hours usage time so the iPhone 6 battery life is identical to the battery life of the GS5

Alpha and iPhone 6 battery capacity is to close. I think alpha really wants to compete with this phone. no mircoSD card and no fm radio is like the apple's iphones.....,.,

I feel that the batteries are to small. IOS doesn't have a battery save mode.... Unless it is in IOS 8

And I can buy thousand liters of milk, 20 kilos of cheese and 10 kilos of strawberry yogurt for that price. Apple you are so laughable, as you can't compete in the diary products market.

Why the alpha is priced over 600$?? , people should buy. The gs5 not the alpha , Samsung must decrease the alpha price to 500$ to sell much of this device

because samsung is stupid, they think they can compete directly to apple with their crap alpha, the reason they are selling is because they are much cheaper and has monstrous specs. if i had so much money, i won't be touching alpha, i will pick iphone. if only they have monstrous specs, just like s5 and note 3 or rumored note 4, the price is justifiable , but this? no. plain stupid.

That will be some incredible battery life with those 2000 and 3000 mAh battery packs.

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

Whoa. If they really do put a 2915mAh into iPhone, coupled with the efficiency of iOS and A8, battery life should be pretty astonishing.

The more functionality from Android that is incorporated into iOS, the more demanding and laggy it gets, as seen in iOS 7.

And what functionality ? Project butter ?

Lol, semi-tasking - they don't have true multi-tasking but it's obvious that it tried to replicate these features with some more demanding off-set.

it was Improved with iOS 7.1 now it is not laggy on new hardware and lag in old hardware is because of older cpu and less and slower ram .

So that's why Touchwiz lags S805 does not have the power to push Touchwiz

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 More like your the biggest pathetic dimwit.

Ios7 lags Ipad mini lags and stutters Ipad lags and stutters Cpu is weak Bogus 1Gb ram
