When Apple introduces new mobile devices, specs are rarely a topic of conversation. It might talk about processing power and camera details, but it typically doesn’t mention RAM or battery size. That’s why the latest information from China’s Tenaa is so interesting.
Tenaa, via OnLeaks, has confirmed the iPhone X will feature a 2,716mAh battery and 3GB of RAM, making it the most powerful smartphone in Apple’s arsenal—which is no surprise, considering the device is expected to be the platform for future Apple handsets. Combine the A11 Bionic chip with the specs listed above, and you have a device that’s capable of laptop-level performance.
Android users might scoff at the specs—today’s Android flagships feature 4GB of RAM and batteries upwards of 3,000mAh. But Apple is famous for creating a synergy between its hardware and software, so the specs of the iPhone X are worthy of competing against the likes of the Note 8 and V30.
The 2,716mAh battery found in the iPhone X is one of the largest ever seen in Apple’s iPhone lineup, but it’s not the biggest. That distinction goes to last year’s iPhone 7 Plus, which features a massive 2,900mAh battery. The iPhone 8 Plus, meanwhile, features a 2,691mAh battery.
Apple claims the iPhone X’s battery will last up to two hours longer than the iPhone 7, which is impressive considering the size and resolution of the iPhone X’s display. When the device launches in November, we’ll be sure to keep a very close eye on battery life.
