With some exceptions and the case of the iPhone 8, Apple has gradually increased the capacity of the battery of iPhones presented to date. A trend largely motivated by the increase in the size of the screen. However, starting next year, the increase in cargo should be even greater. The answer would have to be found in the TrueDepth front camera.
Regardless of the debate generated around the decline in iPhone performance as a result of the degradation of its battery over time, Apple will have to face other problems in the immediate future. The signature of the block has been characterized since its inception to optimize the maximum autonomy of their devices.
The battery charge of the iPhone was on average much lower than that of Android smartphones without noticeably ballasting the autonomy. An effect motivated in turn by the synergy and optimization between software and hardware. However, facing the future, and it would not be far away, the situation could change.
More charge for the iPhone battery of 2019
Once again, it has been the renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, from KGI Securities, who has launched the forecast. The report prepared for investors includes as the central axis, the information about the battery of the future iPhones. There are no exact details about the capacity of the same but the forecast points to a remarkable growth.
The reason that will force Apple to increase the battery capacity of their iPhones is purely technical. A need that starts with the improvement of the facial recognition functions in 3D of the front camera. And it is that the work of optimization of Face ID seems aimed at optimizing the accuracy of the sensors, something that will inevitably result in higher energy consumption.
An energy expenditure that will take Apple to boost the capacity of the battery. Quantitatively, it will be enough to not negatively affect autonomy, and in turn, will serve to improve the time of use of the smartphone.
We must remember that the camera “TrueDepth of the iPhone X bases its operation on the projection of 30,000 laser points on the user’s face to generate a three-dimensional image”. From this, it is verified that the facial features detected through the laser beams correspond to the initial pattern saved.
Three models of iPhone X in 2018
It is anticipated that next year Apple launched three versions of the current iPhone X. It is speculated that the base model will maintain the proportions of the Super Retina Display, with 5.8 inches. There will be a Plus version that will increase the diagonal of the OLED panel to 6.5 inches. The third will correspond to a cheaper version which will use a 6.1-inch LCD screen.
In any case, unlike the solution in the form of two batteries on iPhone X, it is expected that 2018s iPhone also increases battery capacity by adopting a new L – shaped design.
Therefore, always according to the forecasts of the renowned Asian analyst of KGI Securities, from here to the next few years we will witness a notable increase in the capacity of the battery of the future iPhone, quite possibly above the 3,200 mAh. In the comparative mode, it is enough to indicate that currently, the iPhone X has a battery with 2,716 mAh and the iPhone 8 Plus a load of 2,691 mAh.
