#iPhone8 PCB (One of the 2 layers)
The iPhone 8 is expected to feature a stacked logic board which will make room for a bigger battery, notes KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Photos of a new A11 processor were leaked last week.
As battery material tech isn’t likely to see major breakthroughs in the next 3-5 years, mainboard area can only be reduced via stacked SLP, which makes space for larger battery and extended usage time. Thanks to stacked SLP, we expect the OLED iPhone to have similar dimensions to a 4.7” TFT-LCD iPhone, and have comparable battery capacity (equipped with around 2,700 mAh L-shaped 2-cell battery pack) to a 5.5” TFT-LCD iPhone.
Apple is set to unveil its next generation iPhones as early as September 12th. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
