Apple iPhone X successor’s battery details revealed

Reports hinting Apple‘s future plans for the iPhonehave already started coming out. Most of them come in the form of analyst predictions. Adding to those predictions, KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuonow talks about the 2018 iPhone models’ batteries.

Citing details from the latest investors note by Kuo, obtained by Macrumours, the 2018 iPhone X model may have a 10% more powerful battery as compared to the current version. The 10% more powerful battery is said to come if Apple and LGChem are ‘able to deploy a one-cell design for the device’s L-shaped battery’. For now, the iPhone X has a two-cell battery, something that was revealed in the teardowns made by several websites.

Kuo adds that an efficient two-cell design will result in a larger battery capacity from the current iPhone X’s 2900mAh to 3000mAh in the upcoming 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones. He says that one of the major reasons to increase the battery life is that all the three models next year may feature True Depth camera, which is more power-hungry.

“We think Apple (US) is developing a 1-cell L-shaped battery in collaboration with LGC (KR). If the new battery enters mass production on time, the 5.8″ OLED iPhone model will come with a battery with larger capacity (2,900-3,000mAh with higher RFPCB ASP $2.1-2.4). For the 6.1″ LCD model, we expect Apple to keep the rectangular battery design to keep a better cost structure, and we expect capacity could be larger than those of the iPhone 8 series,” says Kuo.

It has already been suggested by Kuo that all iPhone models from 2018 onwards will sport the Face ID. Kuo says that FaceID is likely to keep iPhone on top of its game as Android OEMs could take time to match Apple’s TrueDepth technology, which is used in FaceID. This means the FaceID will stay a major selling point for the company for the next year at least, if not more.
