Apple’s next–generation iPhone X may feature a new, one–cell battery with the ability to offer an extra 10% power.
Analyst Ming Chi Kuo reckons Apple is working with LG to develop the new power pack, in a move that will see 2018\s iPhone X retain the L–shaped battery found in this year’s model.
The latter currently packs two cells, as opposed to one, with a capacity of just 2716 mAh. Kuo says this could reach up to 3000 mAh next year.
The same report also claims that Apple will include a similar battery in the heavily tipped iPhone X Plus, allowing it to keep the device ticking for almost 36 hours.
Decent battery life has long been a black mark against Apple’s iPhone range, although this year’s iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X both offer significant improvement compared with previous editions.
Apple is thought to be working on three new iPhone X–style devices for 2018, with a more affordable model coming with a LCD screen and single lens camera.
