Apple’s iPhone 7 may have a more ‘powerful’ version
It is no surprise that Apple will release multiple versions of its next flagship smartphone. As the iPhone 6/6 plus were two variants followed by the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S plus. All predecessors feature almost the same or slightly different hardware components. Nothing too extreme. However, a recent report from DigiTimes may change that.
Rumors are circulating in the internet that Apple’s 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 7 will boast 3GB of RAM which is 1GB more than the 4.7-inch version. This news stems from a new report from DigiTimes about an expanded memory on Apple’s next flagship phone. Remember that the larger iPhone 7 is said to boast a dual camera on the back in addition to a smart connector. This all corroborates that the larger iPhone 7 will be boosted with an extra 1GB of RAM.
However, Apple over the years has increasingly become innovative: being able to tackle memory restrictions on their flagship smartphone devices. An extra GB of RAM may not be needed.
The iPhone 6, 6S, and 6S plus were big departures from the iPhone 5 series in terms of internal hardware. All three versions had surprisingly low resource demands; this property could be associated to the fact that Apple’s iOS is far less resource intensive compared to its Android rival. Android phones currently boast 4GB to 6GB of RAM.
Remember, the larger iPhone 7 having a bigger RAM is just a rumor. Many rumors have been dispelled before and it is only confirmed when Apple makes the presentation. Plus, Apple is very stingy when it comes to internal components especially in the memory department. Apple is very notorious at adding pricier components to the already expensive iPhone devices.
