iPhone 6 A8 Chip Capable of Playing 4K Video

Posted on November 22, 2014 by

The dual-core A8 chip in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is capable of handling 4K video playback, even though both iPhones have lower resolutions of 1334 x 750 and 1920 x 1080 pixels.

4K video playback on these devices was first discovered by the developers behind WALTR, a Mac app that lets you easily upload and convert any music or video file to an iPhone or iPad for native playback.

From TUAW:

The discovery was made by the developers of WALTR, a great Mac app that allows users to quickly upload video files to their iPhone which aren’t supported by iTunes, such as FLAC and MKV files. While testing the app developers found it is possible to playback 4K videos on the iPhone 6. Even if Apple hasn’t announced it, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are ready to play 4K videos.
