Apple is developing the L-shaped batteries for their future smartphones with OLED displays.
According to leading analyst KGI, Ming-Chi Kuo, it’s expected that future models will have increased battery capacity.
Supplier of new batteries is likely to be a Korean company, LGC.
With decreasing sizes of smartphones manufacturers face restrictions on the location of the internal elements. The battery usually is one of the most cumbersome parts in the design of the phone. It often affects the thickness and appearance of the device.
To make a powerful battery, but keep the same innovative sleek design iPhone X, Apple went on a little trick — make the battery double, in shape of Latin letter “L”. Closer to the release of the latest rumors that the battery is one component, but those plans went awry and had to combine two batteries in a single module.
If Apple and the LGC will be able to cooperate, then next year could be the iPhone c 5.8-inch OLED display and a battery capacity from 2 900 to 3 000 mAh and 8.5-inch version with a battery capacity of 3 300 to 3 400 mAh. For comparison, the capacity of the battery in the iPhone X is 2,716 mAh.
