Last year, Apple challenged the status quo with an affordable iPhone XR. The phone was supposed to be Apple’s reply to large screened Android devices. Despite a few letdowns, the iPhone XR did come with impressive battery life. The battery on the iPhone XR is rated to offer up to 25 hours of talk time and 15 hours of internet usage.
A new report about a much bigger battery on the upcoming 2019 iPhone XR has surfaced. It mentions that the 2019 iPhone XR will be backed by a much bigger 3,110mAh battery which translates to a 5% increase over the 2,942mAh battery on the iPhone XR.
The report also goes on to reveal that Chinese Amperex Technology Limited (ATL) has been given the order for the iPhone XR 2 battery. ATL is the same company that Samsung turned for help when the SDI batteries started exploding on the Galaxy Note 7.
All that we know about the upcoming iPhones
Like its predecessor, the iPhone XR 2 is expected to be available in bright colors including Green and Lavender. At the same time, the rumor claims that Apple will be dropping the Coral and Blue color options.
Needless to say, the new iPhones will come with upgraded camera hardware. In fact, Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst with KGI securities claims that Apple might add a triple-camera to the 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED iPhones and this will include a super-wide 12-megapixel camera. All the new iPhones will come fitted with Apple’s A13 processor and a much advanced 7nm process.
Kuo also predicts that the 2019 line-up of iPhones will come with an updated antenna setup. The antenna setup will use modified-Pi magnetic particle inspection (MPI) as opposed to the Liquid Crystal Polymer on the new iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR. This is expected to help better the network performance (especially indoors) of the upcoming iPhones.[via GSMArena]
