We've seen many leaked parts of Apple's next generation iPhone 6 which should be introduced tomorrow alongside a wearable device. The folks at the French blog NowhereElse.fr managed to get their hands on a short video which purportedly shows off a 2,915mAh battery said to be bound for a 5.5-inch iPhone 6.
This however, the first time we see the part's been captured on a video.
Compared to the ~1,560mAh unit inside the iPhone 5s, this alleged iPhone 6 battery is twice as strong. Whether the added juice is only meant to power the iPhone 6′s power-hungry 5.5-inch screen alongside new sensors and an NFC chip for mobile payments, or perhaps extend the handset’s total run time, shall remain anyone’s guess until next Tuesday, 10am PT.
Steve Hemmerstoffer (the guy who runs NowhereElse) has obtained the claimed battery from his resident source. For what it’s worth, Hemmerstoffer says the part is very likely genuine given the format of the serial number (820-4545-03 820-3230-03) printed on the cable which connects the battery to the print circuit board is the same as the one Apple used for the iPhone 5.
Here's the video:
The mobile processor and the display are by and large the biggest battery killers on any mobile device. Keeping in mind that the LCD IPS technology on iPhones is not as power efficient as Samsung’s AMOLED screens, we’ll just need to wait a little longer until Apple’s big September 9 reveal in order to find out the truth about the iPhone 6′s run time and battery performance.
