Apple will most probably be calling the smaller 4.7 inch variant ‘iPhone 6’ and rumour has it that it will be naming the larger 5.5 variant iPhone Air. However, new reports point to the bigger version iPhone 6L. Apple Daily has even updated this leak with new images of the phone.
The report suspects that the Cupertino company is planning to pack the larger iPhone 6 with a 2,915mAh battery, which is just a hair smaller than the 3,000mAh battery included in the LG G3.
Reports have been divided regarding the near field communications (NFC) support for the iPhone 6. Some say the device will include the short-range communications technology frequently used for mobile payments. Others however, state the device will include NFC. Apple Daily reported that iPhone 6 will include a PN65V NFC chip from NXP, but this was without any form of to back up the claim.
A new report by Chinese repair firm GeekBar however, has revealed a wiring schematic for a NFC chip that is alleged to be included in the iPhone 6. NXP has been said to be the partner for NFC in the iPhone 6 . The company’s PN65 NFC package is used in a number of Android mobile devices.
The sad truth though is that GeekBar’s interpretation does not tally with the previous leak that stated the iPhone 6 will only feature 1 GB of RAM. The schematic seems to be addressing NAND flash rather than DRAM which just doesn’t seem to fit into what we’ve heard so far.
There is a possibility that the schematic references DDR and NAND might actually be involving to the device’s flash memory instead of DRAM included within the A8 chip.
Leaks have been pointing at an iPhone 6 launch to occur on September 9th. The 4.7 variant is set to make its debut a week later. We’re hoping to see the 5.5 inch at the same time but with the rumoured production issues with the larger variant, we don’t see this as a possible move for Apple.
