iPhone 8 And 7s Plus To Feature 3GB RAM, iPhone 7s To Get 2GB [Report]
It’s iPhone rumor time again people, and as the big unveiling draws ever nearer, the leaks are beginning to get more and more specific, especially those that pertain to exactly which hardware will be going into the iPhone 8, iPhone 7s or iPhone 7s Plus.
We already told you about a new report which claims that the iPhone 8 will come in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB storage capacities but there is also talk of how much RAM we can expect the phones to carry. If you like your specifications technical and have a hankering to know how much RAM will be in your next iPhone, then read on!
Normally reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has had a say on exactly how much RAM the new iPhones will have onboard, and with some Android devices packing as much as 6GB of RAM per device – including the very recently announced Galaxy Note 8 – then it could perhaps be expected that the iPhone 8 in particular would be pushing the envelope as far as numbers are concerned. If Kuo is right, with the track record suggesting in the affirmative, then those who enjoy a good spec fight are going to be disappointed. According to Kuo, the high end iPhone 8 will have 3GB of RAM, just like iPhone 7 Plus.
In fact, the same will apparently go for the iPhone 7s Plus, with the iPhone 7s having an even more anaemic 2GB with which to plat. With iOS notoriously requiring less RAM to function than Android due to the way it works, smaller numbers are to be expected although a third, when it comes to the iPhone 7s? That has to be disappointing.
As for the iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 8 – the reason for the additional 1GB of RAM is likely the larger number of pixels the phones have to push around. Boring, but likely correct.
We expect Apple to announce the iPhone 8, iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 7s during early September and we cannot wait to see what will be on offer!
