swirly, 10 Sep 2015What fabrication process is A9 based upon? Does anyone have an idea?Rumors have it at 20nm, same as A8. If its made by TMSC, then its 20nm. Samsung have not made any A8 chips. Nor were they told to make A9..
The improvement comes in transistor architecture so that Apple claims. Which boost 70% faster CPU / 90% more graphics.
The funny thing is, they claim the M9 co chip is build into the A9 chip, and overall reduction in the battery capacity, means maybe the chip could be marginally larger, plus they also need to make space for the haptic engine.
I suspect its just clocked at higher ghz, with more ram, while offset the battery drain by more efficient transistor design.
Maze74, 10 Sep 2015Lets all welcome same 2014 specs with 2012 technology. Come on Apple this is not even a midran... moreSpecs =/= performance my son.
Its about optimization and efficiency. This is the reason why a 570 hp ferrari 458 will be much faster around a track than a 707 hp challenger hell cat.
The force touch is not new technology in mobile world! Its in huawei mate s and Samsung Note series. If you design and draw anything with Spen, you know what i mean! But apple make it new cool features!! And i like it! In my opinion S6 edge plus and Note 5 is the best phones ever
~65.6% screen-to-body ratio, 750 x 1334 pixels...
major release, a lot of technology
Apple just make a phone for working ppl with 4.7 inch screen
Where the battery stands for one full day with heavy use
Only problem will be battery only 1810 mah always need to look for switch board to charge
Lets all welcome same 2014 specs with 2012 technology. Come on Apple this is not even a midrange device...
Android world is about to hit 6 GB of RAMs. 4000 and maybe 5000 mAmp of battery juice and 10 core processors with qhd display.... Are we back to stone age with Apple. Unfortunately people love paying for the trademark!!!!
...And it's still housing that tiny 1810mAh battery LOL! Even the Samsung Galaxy S6 has more than that!
comicman, 10 Sep 20153D touch is not actually a great change in the smartphone world bro! Android for ever!It's ios not ram eatttterrrrr lagy android.
1800mah battery?? :D :D :D :D really? ur fckg kidding me :D I thought 3000mah is the least.... and for this they want 1000eur? :D :D
Duel, 09 Sep 2015Very happy that i skipped iPhone 6, this is a lot bigger game changer. 3D touch going to chang... more3D touch is not actually a great change in the smartphone world bro! Android for ever!
