Latest Apple iPhone 7 leak reveals larger capacity battery and ceramic body
posted by Alan F. / Mar 18, 2016, 5:19 PM
Additionally, a photograph of what is purportedly the battery that will power the iPhone 7, reveals that the cell has a capacity of 7.04 Whr. That is a 6.5% increase in capacity over the 6.61 Whr that the iPhone 6s battery contains. Without knowing the voltage, it would be impossible to get a capacity size for the cell in milliampere-hours (mAh). Comparing two batteries, the one with the larger Whr number will most likely offer longer battery life.
One reason why Apple has allegedly removed the 3.5mm earphone jack from the iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus was to allow a larger sized battery to fit inside the device. If this image is legit, it would appear that the iPhone 7 will come with a slightly improved battery life. It might not be enough to make the power users happy, but any increase in iPhone battery life will be well received.

Too many contradictory iP7 leaks to know which many be genuine... Maybe that's Tim's new secrecy tactic! That said, ceramic is too hard for a device that may be dropped, you need some shock absorption or it'll just chip/shatter.

Don't you worry. Jonny will explain the ceramic process in one of his famous videos.

If they are going with a ceramic back, then most likely Apple will support wireless charging. Since you cannot have wireless charging through a metal back. So now the Apple Zealot's will not be able to complain about the other smartphones on the market which do not have metal backs. Or better yet they won't be able to say crappy things about superior materials.

With the iPhone's low repairability score (as per iFixit), along with ceramic... Does Apple do this as a tactic to make iUsers buy a new iPhone after they've dropped and chipped-off theirs, hence quicker iPhone sales and profits? Just saying.

The One S had a ceramic coating over metal. It wasn't actually ceramic. If you want to say they are copying One Plus, then that's fair game. http://www.phonearena.com/news

How much battery is that? Anyone has an idea?

Phone batteries are usually 3.8-3.85V Whr = V*mAh mAh = Whr / V So if this rumor is true, the iPhone 7 has a 1830-1850mAh battery But AFAIK it's better to compare the Whr anyways, since power is in W (i.e. VxA) e.g. 4V 2000mAh battery would have more power than a 3V 2100mAh

Ceramic is usually used as a heat retardant, Porsches ferraris and lamvorginis along with other high end and super cars cars use ceramic composite brake rotors... They're super strong and much better at handling friction and heat than metal. I don't understand why a phone needs to be made out of it, I like the cold feel of metal or aluminum. But everyone is making phones from aluminum. Apple is probably trying to move to a something different. I for one couldn't care as long as it's not plastic, or feels too light for that premium feel (like the s6 edge). I care that they flatten the damn camera - those leaks with dual camera make me cringe. I love everything about my 6s except the design of the back and that aweful protruding camera. Just make it thicker (leave empty air in there - I don't care).

It might be, but it would be lighter. I would honestly prefer the phone be a little thicker and a lot lighter. Maybe then my iPhone would stop trying to tug my basketball shorts down. Besides, aluminum, glass, and polycarbonate are just played out and everyone has done those materials. It's time for a jump to something that isn't common.

I get that, but if you want light, try the Samsung Galaxy S 6 Edge and Samsung Glalaxy S 6 Edge Plus (long name... eh). They are light - too light for me - doesn't feel like there's substance, but design is better than iPhones and it will provide the lightness you need.
