The Apple iPhone 6s will reportedly bring twice faster 4G LTE connectivity when it launches later this year.
According to a 9To5Mac report, the Apple iPhone 6s will be equipped with a new Qualcomm MDM9635M chip inside, capable of supporting maximum LTE download speeds up to 300 Mbps and upload speeds of 50 Mbps.
While this is good news undoubtedly, it also means that Apple will once again be left behind by Android OEMs when it comes to network connectivity. Android smartphones with LTE Cat.6 came out late last year, while this year we have already seen quite a few new flagships arrive with LTE Cat.9 connectivity that brings support for maximum download speeds up to 450 Mbps.
The new modem is said to be more power efficient than earlier according to Qualcomm, which could help battery life on the new iPhone models. In addition to a more efficient modem, it is claimed by the report that the iPhone 6s motherboard is more compact than the iPhone 6’s, leaving more room for a slightly larger battery.
