If the following video is indeed real, it could be our first look inside the internals of Apple’s iPhone X, revealing the phone’s battery layout.
Twitter user @AnsonChen tweeted out a video this morning which claimed to be his friends in Shenzhen, China, tearing down iPhone X, and revealing a two-battery layout:

Pictures, specifically screenshots, were shared by Weibo user @IVankrTech. Here’s an image of the complete teardown:
These images appear to confirm rumours back in February, shared by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who detailed the 2017 OLED iPhone would contain batteries in an “L” shape:
Users on Reddit note the battery is 10.35wH / 3.81V, which converts to 2716.5 mAh, a touch larger than the 2691 mAh battery found in the iPhone 8 Plus.
We should expect the teardown experts at iFixit to perform their dismantling of iPhone X, soon.
Apple said on stage in September, iPhone X battery life will last two hours longer compared to iPhone 7. A combination of the more efficient A11 Bionic chip and iOS 11.1 should bring more battery life for new users. Stay tuned as iPhone X arrives tomorrow in Canada.
