Larger iPhone could be known as the iPhone 6L

A Chinese website has posted images and battery specifications of the upcoming iPhones, taking out some more suspense from the September 9 launch event.

According to the Chinese website, Apple Daily, Apple is planning to name the larger smartphone, the iPhone 6L while retaining iPhone 6 for the smaller variant. The leaked images posted by the website show the front panels of the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones compared side by side which seem to have similar dimensions, although there is a difference in screen size. The 5.5-inch iPhone has a thinner bezel in the leaked images.

It is also clear from the attached images, that the larger iPhone will feature a bigger 2915 mAh battery while the smaller one will have a 1810 mAh battery. The rest of the images show the iPhone 6's logic board, a batch of batteries and the screen assembly, which have already leaked on numerous occassions.

Recent rumours have indicated that the larger iPhone will feature a more powerful A8 processor compared to the other, and this latest bit of information about the battery sizes could be an indication of the same, as the processor and screen will need the extra juice.

There are plenty of things that can change by September 9 as Apple is known for last minute surprises, and we still haven't seen the iWatch, which could make things interesting at the mega event.

Android L will probably not be used for Android. I think their point is just that they aren't ready to announce the name yet, but that it *will* begin with "L". They're at L now since last release was KitKat. They always move forward alphabetically.

Also, iPhone 6L, not iPhone L (if this rumor is even true).

Can we have an article about all of the new features that are expected for the iPhone 6? I think by now we all get that a larger iPhone will come out, but I've not heard anything about any other features.

I've heard that it has a camera lens made out of jewelry and an unbreakable screen. Other than that, the functional difference lives inside iOS 8.

Well it is a 'Magical' feature to have a bigger screen! Let's not forget yet another row of icons! On the conservative 'revolutionary' iOS11! All in a SmartPHONE iPHONE which most people barely use the 'Phone' no more but most other funtions! Or something like that.

Shouldn't you be posting that ridiculous list of things Apple copied and the one everyone makes fun of you for? Haha

"Magical."

You have Apple confused for Samsung here. Samsung's the company that claims that their unpacked event is, "When magical moments come alive," which included a magician, and even had the word magical in the model name of one of their phones.

Dear God. Please answer the question for once. It was a serious question. WTF is wrong with people here. You guys can barely even discuss iPhones seriously without falling into some psychosis. Are you even trying to be funny or are you just raging?

Main rumors:

- 4.7" vs 5.5" displays
- A8 CPU
- Sapphire crystal display
- A very thin form factor (6-7mm), similar to that of the iPod touch
- Possibly optical image stabilization on the 5.5" variant's camera
- Increased resolution to perhaps 1704x916
- Increased battery capacity from 1560 mAh to 1810 mAh to cover for the larger display
- Perhaps 802.11ac support

The highlights are no doubt the new sizes and form factor. The main "actual" differences will probably come with iOS 8 and its far improved customization to make it more Android'ish in nature (custom keyboards, inter-app communication, etc)

at least with the large screen I can watch some iPhone p#rn on it.

No you can't, Apple wont let you watch anything they do not think you can watch! It's Apple's ecosystem, not yours! Even though you payed for it!

*paid. If you're going to criticize something you should use proper grammar.

iPhone p#rn is probably Jony Ive saying how 'pure'and 'magical' the phone is. At least that's how I interpret it.

You can watch anything want on it. Who ever told you this is an idiot.

I don't even know what to reply. Yes, you can watch porn on it to your hearts content? If you're joking, try to be funny. If you're not trying to be funny, try to stick to facts.

Seriously, Apple's 'revolutionary' years were mainly during the 2000s. They no longer have that spark today. Jobs was the revolution; Jobs was Apple.

And that is also the last time Apple called things revolutionary. People just don't get with the times.

The funny thing is Balmer might not be that wrong in another decade...

The issue with the iPhone and arguably Apple's general strategy is in the long term. It has already pretty much hit saturation point for its market audience because 90%+ of the world simply cannot afford an iPhone, but in the next decade more than half the world will own a smartphone.

As the smartphone market continues to grow the cheaper handsets that will take the lead, and they will out number iPhones by a country mile. Markup across the industry will slowly reduce and with it profits for anyone who doesn't increase their sales volume.

Of course Apple have managed to continued OSX/MacPCs with the same problem in existence and they have happily held a small niche of the global market, but what's a cause for concern from a profits point of view is that OSX/MacPCs bring in around 10% of the companies profits, and likewise the iPod now only accounts for around 2%. More than half of Apple's profit comes from a big markup on the iPhone which if that dwindles then what is the next innovative product that will replace it and keep company profits high through a first to market/high markup product?

Apple does it again! Where do they develop all these innovative and revolutionary ideas? :p

Wat? Oh is this in reference to the screen size? Yeah totally. I forgot that 'Make it bigger' was considered an innovative idea that 'Apple copied'. As I the original iPhone didn't have the biggest screen of any phone at the time, the fact Apple kept the screen size smaller was fine since -you know- it kept selling in record numbers.

Apple sells because of Marketing crapp, not because its better; proved by the fact that their so called perfect 3.5" screen is almost forgotten, and their so called perfect size 4" is not perfect!

Trying to pass off opinions as facts again? That's a sure way to have your post "forgotten" or removed...

Apple sells because Apple puts out a product that a lot of people like. You can have the best marketing in the world, but if not enough people like and buy enough of your product to keep you afloat, then you die. It's Business 101, but I have a feeling that it doesn't matter to you in your reality.

we'll find out soon enough

They're sort of right. It's not comfortable or easy to put your thumb to the top left and hit the back button when using the phone in one hand if it's quite large. However, they've reworked the user experience and added the swipe feature for navigation so you no longer need to do that. I think iOS will work pretty well on a larger screen size.

So they were actually wrong then since they had to go and fix the software first in order to be able to do the hardware.

Not only was Apple wrong in screen size, but Apple also complained so much that Samsung copied them with a rectagle with round corners (how stupid does this sound?), while corrupted Apple copied everything else including bigger screens!

The iPhone 4 really did have the perfect screen size for one-handed usage. :/ I wish Apple still produced a phone of that size in combination with the latest hardware components.

I was thinking the exact same idea but sadly it might not happen.
