Apparent Photo of 5.5-Inch iPhone 6 Battery Reveals 2,915 mAh Capacity

A purported photo of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6's battery on Chinese site Apple Daily [Google Translate] (via Macotakara) alleges that the larger new iPhone could have a capacity of 2,915 mAh. The photo shows the battery carrying an Apple part number of 616-0675 and that it runs at 4.35 volts, although no model number is shown.

While it's difficult to confirm the authenticity of the battery, it does appear to have markings similar to other Apple batteries and looks to have the necessary proportions to fit the 5.5-inch iPhone.

Reports have claimed that the final battery capacity for the 4.7-inch model would be 2,100 mAh, so a battery capacity of 2,915 mAh would make sense for a phone less than an inch bigger. It would also put the 5.5-inch iPhone 6's battery closer to the specs of the 5.1-inch Samsung Galaxy S5's 2,800 mAh battery.

Apple will unveil the iPhone 6 at an event on Tuesday, September 9, with the 4.7-inch model likely launching soon after introduction. The event may also introduce the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, but the model could only be released months later as Apple is having some production issues with the device.

But retina is already enough... Why doe you need so much pixel... It does not make sense.... It will only kill your battery faster... Apple will never do 1080P that is so Android


They're referring to the user 1080p who keeps on insisting that there is no 5.5" iPhone.

There is no 5.5" iPhone.

Well... OK... maybe... this leak is the most believable 5.5" leak I've seen.

Based of the size of the battery to the ladies hand it honestly looks like a 4.7 inch phone battery rather than a 5.5 inch. I tried to keep it at a similar distance and same hand position, you can clearly see i didn't edit the size of either photo since i took a pic of the two previews next to each other. If it is an iPhone 6 battery it is prob a 4.7 inch phone battery. Also if anything i held the phone farther rather than closer so that again only proves my point.

Surely, that must mean it's fake. :D
Every "good" spy shot has to include a long coke nail.
