Alleged images of 'iPhone 6L' showcase 2915 mAh battery, display and logic board
Apple is heavily rumored to be considering two different screen sizes for the iPhone 6, with one model claimed to feature a 4.7-inch display and the other a 5.5-inch screen size. While there have been a steady stream of leaks referencing the 4.7-inch model, there hasn't been much in the way of leaked images when it comes to the 5.5-inch variant, until now. Taiwanese blog Apple Daily seems to be one of the first to post alleged photos of the device, which the website claims will be called the iPhone 6L.
The images showcase a larger and wider display panel, and also compares the display of the 4.7-inch model next to the 5.5-inch variant. The credibility of the photos is still up for grabs, but by taking a closer look we can see that the screw housing, circuit board anchors and flex cables are in the exact same locations as they were on the smaller 4.7-inch model, which is unlikely given the larger and wider nature of the 5.5-inch panel.
Apple Daily also claimed to uncover the logic board, which looks identical to the logic board of the 4.7-inch model. While logic board components of the next-generation iPhone have leaked before, this is the first time we're looking at the alleged 2,915 mAh battery unit for the iPhone 6L. In comparison, the 4.7-inch iPhone is claimed to feature an 1,800 mAh battery, and the current-gen iPhone 5s has a 1,560 mAh unit. At this stage, it is unknown whether the larger battery will provide a long battery life, or whether it is a necessity owing to the larger screen and beefier processor.
The iPhone 6 is allegedly slated for an official unveil on September 9, although there is no indication as of now to suggest that both versions of the device will be announced at the same time. It is likely that the larger screen variant will be launched at a later date.
Are you looking forward to the 5.5-inch variant of the iPhone? What do you think of the iPhone 6L name?
