China regulator reveals iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus battery size

Chinese regulatory body TENAA has a penchant for spilling the beans on things that Apple doesn’t want to reveal. This year as Apple unveiled the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models last week, there was a lot of talk about specs and what not, but the one figure Apple didn’t reveal was the size of the batteries on the new phones. It simply revealed that the iPhone 7 would have 2 hours more battery life than iPhone 6S and the larger model would have an added battery life of an hour over its predecessor.

Now, China’s regulator TENAA has revealed that the phone have a battery size of 1,960mAh and 2,900mAh respectively, which compared to the competition seems like a measly improvement. The iPhone 6S had a 1,715mAh while the iPhone 6S Plus had a 2,750mAh battery.

Compared to this Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones have a significantly large batteries. That being said, comparing an iPhone with a phone based Android isn’t and apples to apples comparison. The way iOS interacts with the custom hardware of the iPhone is vastly different from the way different versions of Android using different customisations work with more or less off the shelf hardware.

The other thing that Apple failed to reveal at the event was the amount of RAM that new iPhones housed. New Android smartphones are now coming with 4GB or 6GB of RAM, while last year’s iPhone 6S model had only 2GB RAM. This detail was also only revealed by a teardown by the folks at iFixit as Apple has never revealed this kind of information. The iPhone 7 Plus is expected to get a boost in RAM for its extra camera, but this may only be revealed when the folks at iFixit do a teardown of the device.
