Apple is expected to unveil three iPhones this June and Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri claims that all the models would come with 3GB of RAM. It is worthy to note that the iPhone 7 sports 2GB of RAM while the 7 Plus sports 3GB of RAM.
Acuri published a research note during March, outlining his examination of various key hardware areas of the new Apple flagships. Here is an excerpt from the note:
In terms of memory/storage configuration, all three models will likely adopt 3GB RAM; the 4.7”/5.5” will likely have the same storage options as the current iPhone 7/7+ in 32/128/256GB while the 5.8” model looks to be only offered in two memory configurations: 64GB and 256GB. Finally, the 5.8” model will likely have extended battery life with two packs of batteries.
Also, reports claim that the 5.8-inch top of the line iPhone will come with extended battery life due to the presence of two packs of batteries. However the iPhone 7s an the 7s Plus are rumoured to retain the same battery capacity.
The special edition iPhone is set to come in 64GB and 128GB configurations while the iPhone 7s and the 7s Plus could start at a poultry 32GB of internal storage. While this is a step up from the 16GB that the 6s offered, it is still low for a flagship by today’s standards.
The research note backs the claims by KGI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, which claimed that the latest iPhones will stick to lightning. However, it will be upgraded to USB Type C standard to support fast charging capabilities.
