Rumors about the iPhone 6 (with 4.7-inch screen) and the iPhone 6L (with 5.5 inch) they keep coming and now several media have published photos of what is assumed will be the batteries for both models, which may be seen in its capacity.
According to these leaks, the iPhone 6 will benefit from a battery of 1.810 mAh, While the larger 6L iPhone models, will have a capacity of 2,915 mAh. It joins other specifications already rumoreadas like Apple A8 processors, screens with higher resolution, better cameras or sensors.
The capacity of the iPhone 6 it contrasts with the current iPhone 5S, 1.560 mAh battery, and does not seem too significant increase that will no doubt have to be sufficient to maintain a decent autonomy considering that the screen will grow not only in size but also in resolution.
More solvent seems the model with diagonal of 5.5 inches, more in line with other devices d eese size and that probably will make this device especially promising in autonomy. We hope to get to know both devices on September 9 in an event that several media say that Apple will host but that the company has not yet confirmed officially.
The data that have been leaked contrast not only with which had protagonizado previous terminals of Apple, but with those offered by devices with the same screen diagonals (or similar) in recent times.
In the case of the iPhone 6 of 4.7 inch, There are no terminals high range with the diagonal, but if we could compare it with the Samsung S5 Galaxy of 5.1 inches (2,800 mAh), Nexus 5 of 4.95 inches (2,300 mAh), the HTC One M8 5 inch (2600 mAh).
In the of the iPhone 6L of 5.5 inch, the obvious comparisons would be faced by it to Sony Xperia Z2 of 5.2 inches (3200 mAh), OnePlus One of 5.5 inches (3,100 mAh), Galaxy Note 3 5.7 inch (3,200) or the LG G3 (3000 mAh).
We can see how in all cases composed of Apple batteries are smaller, but it is also true that the Apple control over hardware and software allows you to develop devices in which energy efficiency is remarkable. In fact, their devices achieve autonomy normally superior to competitors in the same range and similar performance thanks to these technical improvements that Apple is able to implement to manage all devices.
We will have to wait and see the presentation of those devices to confirm these data, but it will certainly be much more interesting to see How to behave these batteries – and especially the iPhone 6 L – to contrast if this important factor is crucial when it comes to opt Apple solutions or those of other manufacturers.
Batteries, screens and resolutions: an equation without solution?
Batteries they are without a doubt one of the major concerns users when purchasing new terminals. The demands of many of them commit the autonomy of a few devices where these components have failed (or known) improve at the same rate as processors or chambers, e.g..
It had to see significant jumps in the power of processors – which certainly also have improved their energy efficiency – but also in sizes and screen resolutions. One of the best examples of this situation is the LG G3, which we discussed recently in Engadget.
This smartphone highlighted by its 5.5-inch screen, and above all by the adoption of a resolution 1440 p in this panel. The result was a fantastic quality that unfortunately only confirmed in very limited scenarios such as video playback or to zoom into photos. Our colleague Juan Carlos López wondered if that resolution was intended to offset, and the response was negative for the majority of users.
The truth is that the new batch of smartphones and increasingly larger phablets allows that batteries may also grow in size and autonomy, but the equation seems to not finish have solution: have a device with solvent to endure a whole day is now less complicated, but the improvements in this respect come with dropper Despite revolutions announced in recent months. Pending that will come, we can only see if the integrated in the new batch of smartphones – including the Apple – manage to go to alleviating this problem so common.
