Apple’s iPhone 6 is well en route. Set to be announced at the Flint Center on Apple’s Cupertino school in just 12 days’ time, we now understand rather a bit about the forthcoming handset.

As an example, we’re aware that it will pack a significantly enhanced (albeit still dual-core) A8 processor and Near-Field Communication (or NFC) – – something that Apple has stood back and enabled Android / Windows Phone vendors to delight in unchallenged. A new leak today provides some top quality snaps purported to depict the iPhone 6′′ s reasoning board, and therein, we get a peek of the new A8 SoC along with the NFC part.


This leakage has actually emerged via the folks at Feld & & Volk, who’ve really been relatively busy in their reporting of the iPhone 6. Shared by Sonny Dickson, a fairly trusted whistle-blower, the shots you see before you are apparently of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6′′ s interior components. Naturally, with the statement now main and Apple having begun preparations for the venue in a fortnight’s time, the leakages aren’t most likely to be at a premium from here on in, therefore while these internals do appear legit, there’s likewise a considerable possibility that they have actually undoubtedly been faked.

Still, putting any doubts to one side, the leak when again suggests that the NFC module, identified ‘ NSD425 ′, will be provided by NXP. The company lags many of the NFC modules discovered within a number of high-end Android smartphones, and with Apple now lastly jumping aboard the NFC bandwagon, we might see a spike in mobile-processed

payments moving forward. The leakage likewise offers a side-by-side look at the iPhone 6 ′ s reasoning ‘board against that of the iPhone 5s. As you’ll observe, there are a reasonable quantity of similarities, however considered that the outer profile of these complex parts do not tend to disclose much with regards to efficiency, we have a fairly approximation of what Apple’s A8 will certainly be capable of.

Previous tidbits assert that the dual-core A8 will certainly produce 2.0 GHz per core, with the 64-bit architecture staying constant after debuting with the iPhone 5s, and although processing power isn’t really the end-all, be-all when it concerns basic performance, it’s definitely an impressive-sounding bump over A7.
