iPhone 5 vs 4S Battery key differences
I’m sure everyone knows that Apple is expected to deliver the details on the next iPhone a week today on the 12th of the month, and Apple has even now gone official with that event sending out invites to the press, but as the unveiling of the new iOS smartphone is still a week away, new alleged images of the iPhone 5 continue to hit the mobile space, and we have yet another purported iPhone 5 image today.
This new image is said to be the iPhone 5 battery, and although we have seen previous images of the battery, this new image that comes from iResQ, a source of several leaked iPhone 5 components, shows the iPhone 5 battery sitting nicely in the smartphone’s rear shell.
The iResQ article states that they have managed to get their hands on the iPhone 5 battery, and have placed it where they believe it will fit perfectly, and then points out the key differences between the iPhone 5 battery and the iPhone 4S battery, and also posted an image of the iPhone 5 battery side by side with the iPhone 4S battery for size comparison purposes.
They say that the new iPhone battery is slightly under half an inch taller than the current battery in the iPhone 4S, whilst the thickness seems to be the same, and the connector on the iPhone 5 isn’t just different, but it is also on the opposite side to the battery so it can accommodate its new position within the new iOS smartphone. And also mentions that the iPhone 4S is a 3.7V/5.3Whr, whilst the iPhone 5 is a 3.8V/5.45Whr. Weight wise the iPhone 4S battery weighs in at roughly .96-ounces, whilst the iPhone 5 battery roughly weighs .80-ounces.
One would have hoped that the iPhone 5 having a bigger battery would mean the new iOS smartphone would feature a longer battery life; however when you take into consideration the iPhone 5 is said to have a bigger touch screen and possibly LTE, any extra battery life will probably be eaten up leaving the iPhone 5 battery life probably much the same as the iPhone 4S.
Still one does have to remember that nothing is final until Apple says so, but the iOS faithful will know for sure what the iPhone 5 will look like and offer in a weeks time.
