iPhone 6s Expected To Be Thinner And Lighter; Production Starts Next Month (RUMOUR)

According to a new report from Digitimes, Apple will use smaller LED backlighting chips measuring 0.4t (dimensions of 3.0 x 0.85 x 0.4mm) in the next generation iPhone (iPhone 6s). Comparatively, the LED chips for backlight units (BLUs) on the exiting iPhones is 0.6t (3.0 x 0.85 x 0.6mm), according to the report.

“Considering patent issues and stable production, Apple will still have Japan-based Nichia and Toyoda Gose supply the 0.4t LED chips for the BLUs,” Siu Han and Adam Hwang report for Digitimes. “As such LED chips are smaller with brightness 10% lower than 0.6mm ones, the BLU may need to use 2-3 more chips to reach the same total brightness.” On to of that, this should lead to an improvement in the battery life of the next generation iPhones.

Furthermore, production of the next generation iPhones will begin in June 2015 and an estimated 24 million units will be initially shipped in the third quarter, according to the report.
