We all know by now that the world is soon going to plunge itself into the iPhone 5 mania – or perhaps if Apple were to follow the new iPad’s naming convention, the next generation iPhone could very well be called the “new iPhone” for all we know. Still, there has been plenty of rumors surrounding the upcoming iPhone recently, ranging from the different number of pins in its connector to the display size that is more or less going to be larger – not to mention carry a higher resolution count. Well, today we have a new battery shot which was allegedly leaked out for the iPhone 5, where the grain of salt that you swallow with this bit of news might also result in a higher capacity battery for the new iPhone. It goes without saying though, should the alleged iPhone 5 battery run at 1440mAh, which is higher compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 4S, there is nothing much to shout for joy for considering the larger display size on the new iPhone, in addition to potential battery-draining 4G LTE capabilities.
Perhaps the new iOS 6 will also help the new iPhone (or iPhone 5, whatever rocks your boat) be able to run longer and more efficiently on a 1440mAh battery. There is also the possibility of Apple toying around with their dual-core SoC design for the iPhone 5, which might see the integration of fewer battery-draining components such as Qualcomm’s Gobi chipset.
In context, the Samsung Galaxy Note carries a 2,200mAh battery, while most of the other modern day smartphones and phablets do have at least 1,800mAh of juice inside. As for the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX, it is said to carry a whopping 3,200mAh or so – hence the MAXX moniker at the back. Assuming the above rumor of a 1,440mAh rumor holds any water, then it would definitely be a nightmare for power users considering the next generation iPhone has been touted to be an LTE handset, and we know just how fast LTE handsets guzzle up their respective batteries.
The conclusion? It is most probably not the new iPhone’s battery, as one of the primary reasons of coming up with a bigger iPhone would be to ensure a higher capacity battery can be thrown into the mix. What do you think – is this a new battery or not?Related articles:
