Apple A8 Chip in new iPhone 6/Plus support 4K video playback

Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are considered as a top in class smartphone of the year by Tech geeks. After few months of anticipation, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has delivered to the hands of customers and now it has been proved that Apple’s latest smartphones can able to display video of 4K resolution.apple iphone 6 and iphone 6 plus

Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus comes with the resolution of 1335 x 750 and 1920 x 1080 pixels and still they can able to play back video with resolution of 4K. Since the native resolution of the device is a little bit lower while compared to 4K resolution, the device plays video in an impressive way.

Both the devices come with A8 processor that are specially made for Apple and they can able to produce more than 25% processing than its predecessors. Generally, 4K video will take more space while compared to ordinary 1080p, and it will take approximately 110 GB of space for playing 1 hour of video. It is highly in doubt, that people will keep 4K video in the small sized iPhones.

Softorino, a company that develops application for iOS mentioned in its YouTube video channel as,

“Uploading 4k videos to iPhone 6 is only possible with the app softorino.com/waltr. This is video proof of [that the] iPhone 6 with [an] A8 chip is able to playback 4K video content packed in H.264,”

Apart from this, there are few applications that are available in the Apple App store for playing 4K video and it seems like near-future version of Apple products will automatically supports 4K video natively.

Apple’s latest iMac Retina Display would support a maximum resolution of 5K and it would be four times the resolution of ordinary iMac. This shows us, Apple may introduce an iPhone with native 4K display. But it looks impossible to store 4K video in smaller storage devices, since 1 minute of 4K video requires 2GB of storage space.
