iPhone X found to pack a slightly larger battery than the iPhone 8 Plus


Earlier this month, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus made an appearance on the TENAA website, revealing their battery sizes. More recently, iFixit’s teardown confirmed that the iPhone 8 packs an 1821mAh capacity battery while the iPhone 8 Plus is equipped with a 2691mAh capacity battery inside. Today, the iPhone X was spotted on the TENAA website, revealing a slightly bigger battery than the one inside iPhone 8 Plus.

According to the TENAA listing, the iPhone X comes with a 2715mAh capacity battery, very slightly larger than the iPhone 8 Plus. For consumers, this doesn’t really mean much at all, since Apple claims the iPhone X delivers battery life slightly lower than the iPhone 8 Plus. Usually, devices with the same battery capacity are more or less identical in the battery life department, so it does seem a little strange. While the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus both are claimed to provide up to 21 hours of talk time, the iPhone X has a lower browsing time of up to 12 hours compared to 13 hours on the iPhone 8 Plus. When it comes to video playback time, Apple’s website suggests the iPhone X can provide up to 13 hours of playback while the iPhone 8 Plus delivers an hour more. However, both iPhones do support fast charging and a quick 30-minute charge is enough to charge the batteries to the 50% mark.

The iPhone X will be going on sale in India starting November 3rd for a starting price of Rs.89,000 for the 64GB variant. If you wish to get the 256GB variant, be prepared to shell out Rs.1,02,000, which is almost as high as some powerful gaming laptops. While it does boast a unique design and a large OLED panel, it is no doubt overpriced, at least here in India.
