The new iPhone 6s may end up thicker than the iPhone 6, leaked schematics reveal
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?
