Two new reports claim the iPhone 6 will be getting an upgraded battery and camera. NowhereElse located a picture of the alleged iPhone 6 4.7” model battery, which has a stated capacity of 1810 mAh. The iPhone 5s had a 1560 mAh cell, so this would be a reasonable upgrade, albeit offset by the likely greater power demands of a larger display. It’s still unclear how much of an effect the expanded capacity would have on overall battery life due to factors such as A8 chip power consumption.
Another report, sourced from a Chinese web forum, claims the iPhone 6 will have a 13MP Sony Exmor sensor. The report claims the Sony Exmor RS IMX220 sensor will be used, however, iLounge’s research suggests that Sony’s Exmor RS IMX220—a 20MP sensor—is likely too large to fit inside the new iPhone, and the 13.1MP IMX214 is a more likely possibility. Relative to the iPhone 5s, the new camera would offer 4208×3120 resolution, improved color accuracy and less visual noise in low-light conditions, as well as support for high-resolution HDR videos, 4K videos, and full-resolution HDR panorama images.
