After a few months in which the subject of the rumors about the new iPhone has been quite stopped, largely thanks to the Apple Watch, we have been a few weeks in which little by little the numerous novelties with which Apple will provide the new model of the company in September are being revealed. Did you think the iPhone couldn’t be any thinner? It seems so.
Apple continues to err on the side of thinness and lightness in its devices. And in this search it has found a new ally in new LED backlight chips that could, at least in theory, make the next iPhone 6s thinner and also lighter . The new chips, according to DigiTimes, are three millimetres wide, 0.85 mm high and 0.4 mm deep compared to the 3.0 mm x 0.85 mm x 0.6 mm chips used in the current iPhone 6 generation and iPhone 6 Plus devices.
This may seem like a small gain, but added to others, it would make a thickness that is less in each generation of the iPhone. This reduction in thickness should not imply a greater tendency to bend, blessed be, especially if we consider the rumors that Apple uses in the new iPhone the same aluminum used in the Apple Watch Sport , significantly more resistant than that used in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
Personally, I think that, as with many other specifications, Apple is entering an absurd war to get thinner and thinner devices. It could well take advantage of those tenths of a millimetre to increase battery capacity and thus offer even more autonomy, a war from which users would benefit.
