Leaked Logic Board Reveals iPhone 6s Will Double LTE Speeds?

Apple’s next iPhone should double LTE download speeds from a theoretical maximum of 150Mbps on the present-generation iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus up to 300Mbps on the next-generation ‘iPhone 6s’ and ‘iPhone 6s Plus,’ according to a purported logic board leaked by 9to5Mac.

A photo of the alleged ‘iPhone 6s’ logic board shows a chip identified as the MDM9635M module from Qualcomm, part of its ‘Gobi’ modem platform.

Compared to Qualcomm’s MDM9625M module found inside the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the new chip doubles LTE download speeds while operating more efficiently than its predecessor. It has, however, the same 50Mbps upload speed limit as its counterpart powering the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

It’s worth mentioning that KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted back in January 2015 that 2015 iPhones would be outfitted with the Qualcomm MDM9635M baseband chip, though this is the first time we saw solid evidence of it.
The MDM9635M enables high-resolution video streaming and ultra high-speed download speeds and supports LTE Advanced carrier aggregation for both LTE TDD and FDD Category 6, along with dual carrier HSUPA and dual band multi-carrier HSPA+.

“The LTE Cat 6 device is designed to provide consumers with download speeds of up to 300 Mbps and more efficient power consumption,” according to Qualcomm.
"The Category 6 speeds enabled by the Gobi 9×35 will allow customers to enjoy blazing-fast downloads, snappier application performance due to lower network response time, and run more connectivity based applications smoothly, as well as concurrently," says Qualcomm. It is "backwards compatible and supports all other major cellular technologies, including DC-HSPA, EVDO Rev. B, CDMA 1x, GSM and TD-SCDMA."
