The new iPhone 6s may end up thicker than the iPhone 6, leaked schematics reveal
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 06, 2015, 5:43 AM
According to these leaked schematics below, allegedly depicting the dimensions for the upcoming next iPhone 6s, the phone will be slightly thicker than the current, 6.9mm iPhone 6 edition. If the showing here holds water when the new iPhone is announced, then it could be due to several reasons, but hopefully it will be because the iPhone 6s will house a larger battery.
making enough in-cell touch screens for the alleged higher screen resolution of the iPhone 6s, the new handset could arrive with a slightly thicker lamination, which would explain an eventual 0.2mm move. Another possible screen-related reason is the Force Touch layer that the new iPhone would allegedly incorporate, distinguishing between a light tap, and a full press, like on the Apple Watch.Given the rumors, however, that Apple's screen suppliers are having issues
Alternatively, this might be due to the expected higher camera resolution, if the 12 MP module that is rumored has more girth than the current protruding 8 MP thingy on the back of the iPhone 6. In any case, it is not a big difference, it's just that Apple might exit the exclusive sub-7mm club, though if it is for the sake of a larger battery, that would be a trade off worth taking. What do you think?

Can we all simply agree that Apple's products are overpriced and have a s**t obsolete hardware?

That irony when you're a troll as well.

Envious of force touch? Only Apple nerds are excited about that seeing as how it literally makes 0 difference use wise. No one will even know it is there for the most part because it is a hidden input. Plus pressure touch has been done to death before, capacitive touch replaced it because pressure touch sucked. Honestly, iFans will eat up everything the Apple marketing team throws out.

Thus far you have yet to contribute anything related to the article, you simply raced to be the first post in an attempt to cause conflict before anyone else had a chance. So I think you just called yourself out with your comment.

Who would even notice a 0.2mm difference?

Of course it does. Not that they can fit in a bigger battery, but they can also get rid of the camera hump.

Anyone would take 8-9mm thickness resulting in larger battery, better camera optics over the 6mm thin iPhone anyday.

It won't be as great compared to the current crop. Different camera means very different optics and therefore, very difficult to perfect. They have been using the same camera for about 3-4 years now and so switching will make them have to actually work for once. Others have been dealing with that for a while and Samsung has kind of perfected the 16 MP ones they have had. So now we shall see how well Apple can actually do camera wise. It can go both ways but I will bet against because they just haven't delivered anything perfect recently. It won't suck, but it won't be the best either.

I wouldn't. I'd rather have they improve the battery and improve the optics and keep the same thickness. They obviously have 200 billion in resources to do it. They just would never take that hit for you, me, him, or her. Which is why I have a hard time supporting them.
