Apple’s iPhone 6s/Plus to double LTE speeds, run more efficiently

“One of the main upgrades to the next iPhone’s internals will be a redesigned wireless system featuring a new Qualcomm-made LTE chip, as revealed by images of a prototype iPhone 6S logic board shared by a source,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.

“As shown in the image below, the new device will include Qualcomm’s MDM9635M chip, also known as the ‘9X35’ Gobi modem platform,” Gurman reports. “This new chip promises significant performance improvements over the ‘9X25’ chip found inside of the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, capable of delivering up to twice the theoretical LTE download speeds.”

    1. Reread that. Didn’t catch the “theoretical” speed. That needs to be rewritten gooder. 😉
      So current phones are at LTE speeds and future ones will use a Flux Capacitor to double the bandwidth of the LTE network?
      The chip is so efficient that 50% of the time it is idle or only needs half the clock cycles to push the same amount of data, therefor saving precious battery life.
