iPhone 6 rumours abound: fingerprint scanner, camera and battery details


Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6 has got the rumour-mill churning again – not that it ever stops when it comes to Cupertino. A series of apparent leaks concerning the tight-lipped company’s new device claims to have information on the fingerprint sensor that will feature in the handset that we’ll see later this year, as well as details on the battery and camera that the iPhone 6 will be packing.

The fingerprint sensor and battery details come by way of Nowhereelse.fr, though there seem to be negligible changes to the apparent Touch ID sensor update. The images that have leaked show only that the screw placement for the sensor is immediately apparent but it will reportedly be a more durable unit all round.

As for the battery, that’s apparently going to be an upgrade of the 1,560mAh battery found in Apple’s existing smartphone, jumping to a 1,810mAh power pack. It’s a far cry from LG’s 3,000mAh battery, found in the G2 and G3, and if this leak is accurate, it doesn’t bode well for those hoping for a Quad HD display from Apple unless they have some serious technological wizardry up their sleeves. It should be enough to power a larger display though, so perhaps there’s some truth to speculation of a larger iPhone this year.

Lastly there is an apparent camera sensor upgrade, which will see Apple retaining the Sony Exmor hardware but it will be a 13MP Exmor IMX220 according to GforGames. That means an overall upgrade in images taken with the iPhone, which are already quite spiffy to look at with existing tech.

Not the most exciting series of leaks but an interesting crop nonetheless. Apple, of course, isn’t saying anything so we’ve got our eyes turned towards an official announcement later this year.
