Just a day have gone by when we have reported about the leaked images of Apple iPhone 6s frame. Now it’s time to look into more meaty stuff with ‘s’ series going a transformational leap of just from just being a advanced specification to major hardware changes. ‘s’ series have been now a norm with Cupertino based manufacture which follows the normal iPhone series.
The so called transformational leap will be in the form of a faster LTE chip. According to a prototype iPhone 6S image surfaced on 9to5Mac shows a logic board and more prominently the Qualcomm’s MDM9635M LTE processor. The Processor is being dubbed as ‘9X35’ which is touted as better performer than its predecessor 9X25 which powers our current generation iPhone 6 and iPhone 6Plus. The 9X35 will provide double the speeds of what is being offered by 9X25 atleast in theory.
Samsung Galaxy S5 in South Korea are able to attain 300Mbps speed which is almost double the speed being offered by current iPhone models. However there is a remarkable difference in the maximum speed as mentioned in theory and real-world performance. According to 9to5Mac Mark Gurman, there are chances that iPhone 6S will be able to attain the 225Mpbs, that too depends on network. The higher speeds being talked about here will see an actual test when it is commercialized.
However like iPhone 6 users will be able to get upload speeds of upto 50Mbps only. The upload speed is not the area of fancy for the users atleast in current time as they are more focuses on browsing, downloading, streamlining etc. The Category 6 Chip is backward compatible to number of cellular standards such as DC-HSPA, CDMA 1x, GSM, TD-SCDMA, EVDO Rev. B etc.
Not only ‘9X35’ LTE processor is faster but more efficient than earlier which can result into increased battery life. It is also expected that motherboard of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus may be narrower that will give more space for larger batteries which is the most common expectation of users from the Apple.
