Supposed Next-Gen iPhone Battery Image Leaked, 3.8V, 1440 mAh
With fall quickly approaching, the launch of the next-generation iPhone is around the corner and there has been lots of “leaked” information. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen quite a bit of images leaked, with the most notable ones being the back plates of the new iPhone
. These parts helped reveal an all-new thinner enclosure, metal design, smaller dock connector, relocation of the front-facing camera, amongst other various attributes.
According to 9to5Mac
source, Sonny Dickson, images of the new iPhone battery packs have been revealed. These battery packs sport a higher capacity than packs in previous generations of Apple’s iPhone. This new battery features a capacity of 1440 mAh. That is up from the capacity of 1430 mAh on the iPhone 4S and up from 1420 mAh on the iPhone 4 based on iFixYouri
who examined the battery photos.
Along with the increase in battery capacity, the new battery also features a new voltage of 3.8. This is up slightly from 3.7 on both the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 4. The new battery also has an increased watts-per-hour measurement (wHr), 5.45 wHr, which is an increase from 5.3 and 5.25 on the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4, respectively. This is another battery variable that points to an increase in power available to the new iPhone. The battery’s label appears to say that it was produced in June, 2012 which seems to coincide with the next-generation iPhone component manufacturing.
While Apple has increased or tweaked the iPhone battery every year, this new battery seems to be significant due to the rumors of LTE network connectivity. LTE, infamously, requires bigger batteries due to the power that the faster network takes. It seems like the jump in battery capacity from the previous iPhones to this new iPhone is not all that big with this fact taken into consideration.
We’ll find out sooner rather than later though when more concrete information is revealed.
