iPhone 7 To Feature A Larger Battery Than Its Predecessor, But Not By Much
In its quest to make iPhone 7 as thin as possible, Apple is definitely going to be bringing in a huge number of changes to its upcoming flagship, with the primary one being the battery capacity. According to the latest leak, iPhone 7 will have a larger battery capacity than iPhone 6s, but that increase is something that will put a smile on your face.
iPhone 7 To Get An 111mAh Battery Increase Over Its Predecessor – Told You It Was Not By Much
If our math is correct, then iPhone 6s sports a 6.61WHr battery, and according to the leaked image given below, iPhone 7 will be incorporated with a 7.05WHr cell, which brings us to the grand conclusion that both smartphones have the following capacities rated in ‘mAh’.
- iPhone 6s: 1,715mAh
- iPhone 7: 1,826mAh
We’ll hardly call that an increase, but looking at the other upgrades expected to be inside the upcoming high-end smartphone, Apple believes that this will suffice. According to our previously covered reports, iPhone 7 Plus is expected to come with a 3,100mAh battery, which is huge even by Apple standards, along with an on-board storage increased to 256GB. We expect that 256GB will be nice little upgrade for those who have capped their 128GB internal memory (for a premium price obviously), Apple really seems to be discouraging users who want more battery life from the 4.7-inch model of the company’s devices.
iPhone 7 Plus has all the natural benefits to pack in a larger battery capacity, and thanks to a reported ‘bezel-less’ display, both handsets are expected to be even more appealing than their previous generation counterparts. Moreover, the upcoming products are expected to be incorporated with EMI shielding technology. According to industry sources, the tech giant is intending on applying the technology to the following components:
- Radio frequency (RF)
- Connectivity chips (wireless LAN, Bluetooth)
- AP (application processor) and other modems
Furthermore, images of iPhone 7’s dual-camera module also leaked out, and if you are wondering what happens when you incorporate a dual-camera module inside a smartphone, we have decided to provide you with a basic description along with a video posted below. When you are engaged in capturing a video or a photo, users will be able to view the transition between both lenses seamlessly, tapping on a spot in the photo to zoom in with a second lens.
Afterwards Apple’s cleverly designed system would work similarly to digital zoom does today. There will be one advantage to using this particular software; since users will be busy using a lens with a longer focal length instead of zooming in through software, it will result in no loss of detail when you zoom into the image.
While iPhone 7 does seem to be packing impressive hardware and features, the battery capacity is definitely not one of them.
