It seems that at Apple have finally put to work to solve the main problem of iPhone: the low autonomy of the battery. And according to KGI security analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the long-awaited iPhone 8 - or iPhone X - will modify its design to ensure a battery with a longer life in terms of load cycles and autonomy . This time, Apple.
Actually, the material of manufacture of the battery is still Li-Ion, something that probably is not modified in the next 3 to 5 years, but what if you can play is with its distribution and compactness , so that can only Be reduced by stacking layers in a given arrangement or SLP, allowing the integration of larger batteries in the same space.
According to Kuo, the new battery design, consisting of an overlapping layering composition also known as substrate-type PCB motherboard, will result in the iPhone 8 will have the same dimensions as a 4.7-inch iPhone, But with a battery capacity similar to a 5.5-inch iPhone, allowing a load of 2,700 mAh thanks to this overlap of dual-cell batteries in L-shape or SLP, as you can see in the chart.
To give us an idea, we will have the battery performance of the version of the iPhone 7 Plus but in the standard model iPhone 7 . And is that the battery of the iPhone 7 has a load of 1,960 mAh compared to the 2,900 mAh of the iPhone 7 Plus. Almost 33% more, almost nothing.
But there the good news does not end, battery life will be better and longer because the OLED screen is much more energy-efficient than the TFT-LCDs that are currently used.
