New Video Again Shows 5.5-Inch iPhone 6 Battery With 2,915 mAh Capacity

Following a photo of the component last week, a video shared by Nowhereelse.fr (Google Translate) once again shows what is said to be a 2,915 mAh battery from the 5.5-inch iPhone 6. The battery shown is also shown carrying an Apple part number of 616-0675, and running at 4.35 volts, which is also in line with previous leaks.


A capacity of 2,915 mAh would be much greater than that of the 1,560 mAh battery found on the iPhone 5s and the rumored 1,810 mAh battery said to be included on the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. It is also likely that Apple will look to tightly integrate iOS 8 and the hardware of the iPhone 6 to allow for optimal performance and battery life.

Apple is expected to show off of the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 at a media event tomorrow. In addition to a larger display, the 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6 is said to contain an improved camera module with optical image stabilization, a faster processor, and more. It is unknown whether the larger iPhone 6 will ship with the smaller model of the handset, as production issues may hold the 5.5-inch version back.

Apple are going to alienate a lot of customers if they make the 5.5" with better specs than the 4.7"

I myself will be going for the 4.7" as to me its a phone and therefore must be able to fit in my pocket, my universal car holder, my hand with ease. I understand why some people want the 5.5" for productivity reasons and whatever is good for them I guess, but users should not be punished with lower end hardware because they want a smaller screen.

If Apple were to handle this like they did the iPad Air and iPad Mini with Retina Display, whereby both models are almost identical in specs apart from a marginally fast processor clock due to better thermal dissipation for the larger Air then that would be the best course of action, plus I don't think Apple would be that stupid to alienate an entire user base because of the want of a smaller screen.

For me personally going from an iPhone 4S I would be happy with performance on par/faster than my iPad Mini Retina as that thing flies compared to my little old 4S, a bigger screen as I have big hands and the 4S is feeling a little cramped now, a better camera especially in low light and some form of stabilisation tech, and a better battery life as my poor 4S battery is a bit erratic as its over 2 years old now.

So far the iPhone 6 (god I hope they drop the number this time round) leaks/rumours indicate that we will get that and more and the design is looking kinda nice (I'm not too bothered by the antenna bands which have divided most people in here) but I will be annoyed if I ended up with an inferior device because I chose a smaller screen.

I look forward to having a 5.5 inch iPhone. It's gonna be very useful having a larger screen and it not being on android is a dream come true. Cant stand that operating system.

I noticed i read sites and watch youtube vids more than I use my phone to make calls these days. I guess its cause of stuff like Whatsapp group convos with my best friends.

So a 5.5 inch iPhone is totally fitting for me. Maybe now I will play Walking Dead 2, Wolf among us and San Andreas on this titan.
