The 5.5" iPhone 6 Air battery leaks on video, flaunting generous capacity

The 5.5
The 5.5" iPhone won't be for the faint of heart Apple fans, as it will allegedly usher the Cupertino team in the era of giant phablet-type phones, considering that it also has to now fit Apple's venerable Touch ID fingerprint scanner below the display, so the bezel situation is unlikely to be Mate 7-like.

What we are fairly certain, though, is that the iPhone 6+ or iPhone Air, or whatever Apple decides to name it, will be no less premium in terms of design than the 4.7" iPhone 6, and will sport well-crafted thin aluminum chassis, housing some rapid fire silicon inside. With a grand high-res screen comes the inevitable grand drain on the battery, though, that's why we are content to see that the battery pack will be no slouch, if the video below turns out to be credible. It shows a purported iPhone 6+ or Air battery, with a capacity of 2915 mAh, which is close enough to the usual flagship phablet threshold of 3000 mAh, and, knowing Apple's hardware/software synergy, should be able to power the 5.5-incher through the day, and then some.

And who cares, 5S's display has more than enough pixels to use it comfortably and fantastic sunlight visibility. Colors are also very pleasing to me, but ofc fandroids are bi.ching about not having QHD on 4" inch screen like even on 6" it doesn't have sense.

Why does he say "knowing apples hardware/software synergy, should be able to power the 5.5 inch p hamlet through the day". I phones are well known for shoddy battery life despite what phone arena claim.

With Apples tight software/hardware optimization, I would give this easily in excess of 22 hours talk time - possibly around the 25 hour mark.

17. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

I doubt they would even reach the 18 hours mark, let alone 22.

It seems like after all the bashing samsung has been throwing at apple about battery life, they finally listened... 3000mah on iOS is probably a lot. Good for Apple

Good Move for Apple. Why all the Android people bashing here? I'm no Apple fan.. but FFS.. better batteries in ANY phone is a good thing.
