Apple hardly focuses on the specs sheet while launching its new iPhones. Naturally, we hardly knew details regarding the internal specifications of both the Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. A TENAA listing has, however, leaked information regarding the battery capacity and RAM found inside the new iPhones.
Tim Cook may claim that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are completely new phones, but it’s hard to not think otherwise. Even, both the iPhones look exactly identical to its predecessor except for the addition of a layer of glass to the back. That said, the internals of the iPhone 8 series have received a major boost in the form of the Apple A11 Bionic chip. The cameras to have received the much-needed upgrade. However, not all specs have received an upgrade. At least, that’s what the TENAA listing of the Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus suggest.
Smaller Batteries, Yet Better Better Battery Life
As per the listing, the Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus come with smaller batteries as compared to their predecessors. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus features 1,821mAH and 2,675mAH batteries underneath the hood. For the uninitiated, the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus came with 1,960mAH and 2,900mAH cells respectively. Incidentally, Apple claims that its new iPhones will come with better battery life than its predecessor. This makes use believe the Apple A11 is really a power efficient chip.
Apple A11 Bionic Chip Clock Speed
Apart from the battery capacity, the TENAA listing further divulges information regarding the RAM and the clock speed of Apple A11 Bionic chip. The Apple iPhone 8 listed as Apple A1863 comes with only 2GB RAM. On the other hand, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus features 3GB RAM. Additionally, both smartphones are powered by a 2.4Ghz hexa Apple A11 Bionic chip.
While there’s no reason why we wouldn’t rely on the TENAA listing, but popular tipster @onleaks has a different story to tell. According to him, the Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus come with slightly larger batteries at 2,100mAh and 2,700mAh respectively. So, we need to wait for a tear down by iFixit or someone else to confirm the specifications.
