Apple unveiled iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the company’s next-generation iPhones earlier this week. Apple doesn’t mentions battery capacity for the iPhones on its site, and we usually find those details later on certification sites or in teardowns. Now both the phones have been certified by TENAA in China revealing smaller battery capacities compared to predecessors, even though the new ones have become heavier and slightly thicker, probably due to glass back and other new materials.
This shows 1821mAh battery for the iPhone 8 (A1863), compared to 1960mAh battery on the iPhone 7 and 2675mAh battery for the iPhone 8 Plus (A1864) compared to 2900mAh battery on the iPhone 7 Plus, so these have about 7% smaller batteries compared to the predecessors. It also reveals 2GB of RAM for the iPhone 8 and 3GB of RAM for the iPhone 8 Plus, same as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, as rumored earlier.
A recent Geekbench listing showed the iPhone 8 Plus powered by the latest A11 Bionic chip achieving whopping 4274 and 10248 s ingle and multi-core scores, outperforming the iPad Pro.
We should know more details about the hardware of the phone when iFixit does a teardown next week.
