We’ve been seeing quite a lot of leaks claiming to be parts of an upcoming iPhone 6s, but are they really working components? A video recently shows some of the parts being put together to form a semi-functional device.
The video was published by MacRumors. It shows a leaked iPhone 6s logic board and display assembly being assembled with a parts from an iPhone 6 like rear shell and battery. The device does boot up but unfortunately, it does not run on iOS – all you see is a display showing a gear icon.
If these parts are true, it means that the upcoming iPhone 6s will indeed support faster LTE speeds, and better power efficiency. Several photos shared by MacRumour shows that the logic board include Qualcomm’s WTR3925 radio frequency transceiver chip to pair with the new modem.
Another feature unveiled by this leak include a more power efficient 28nm processor, down from the 65nm processor found in the current iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Sadly though, if you were wondering if Apple will use an updated A9 chipset, the logic board appears to be preproduction unit, and does not include details about the chip.
Apple is expected to launch its next generation iPhones on 9 September 2015. We’ve been seeing a lot of new and exciting Android smartphones in the market lately, do you think the next iPhone would be as exiting?
