The motherboard showing various components of the upcoming iPhone 7 have been leaked, along with the powerful, and efficient A10 chipset. Let us take a look at the leaked motherboard images and see if you can identify the other images shown in the pictures given below.
Apple A10 Shown On The iPhone 7 Motherboard – Let’s See If You Can Identify All The Details Right Here
Apple’s A10 is going to be manufactured on TSMC’s 16nm FinFET technology, which is the same node that’s going to be used for the upcoming Apple Watch 2. In the images, we can only see a single SIM card slot, and that debunks the rumor that the smartphone is going to come with a dual SIM feature.
From a hardware perspective, all upcoming iPhone 7 models are going to feature an A10 SoC, and according to the leaked performance metrics, the chipset is powerful, but not as much as we would want it to be, although we have to add that the improved processor design will help to save battery life. The phone could also feature LTE modems from two different companies, and we believe that the phablet is going to feature a 3,100mAh battery.
Apple is also said to adopt a new chip developing technology called FoWLP, which stands for fan-out wafer level packaging platform. With this technology, smartphone OEMs can greatly reduce the thickness of their mobile devices since FoWLP does not require a PCB. Additionally, it is able to increase the efficiency of chips by 30 percent and reduce the thickness of smartphones by at least 0.3mm. We bet Apple’s ears must be ringing when they were pitched that smartphone thickness could be using by employing this technology in mobile devices.
