Samsung, Hynix To Get 2GB LPDDR4 Memory Contracts For The iPhone 6S – Device To Feature Force Touch
Word has started to leak down the rumor mill chain about Apple’s iPhone 6S (if the company sticks to its existing nomenclature) that the Cupertino manufacturer is looking to make some changes to its flagship device this year.
Another report straight out of Taiwan today suggests that Apple might be looking to integrate one of its Apple Watch features on the iPhone 6S. TechNews Taiwan reports that Apple will introduce Force Touch on its flagships smartphones this year. Force Touch is currently a feature found in the Apple Watch that according to Apple is “most significant new sensing capability since Multi‑Touch”. Through Force Touch, thet screen of your gadget is able to detect between soft, and hard touches and provide you with subsequent options and/or responses.
On the Apple Watch, Force Touch is enabled through the electrodes found on the devices screen that are able to detect the difference in force and pressure of touch commands. If introduced in the iPhone, this would also mean that Appleis forced to change manufacturing materials for its flagship smartphone as electrode detection is not possible through current rigid displays.
The company is also looking to finally making a much awaited (needed?) RAM increase on the iPhone 6S. According to the report, Apple will reportedly place orders of LPDDR4 RAM modules to Samsung, Micron Elpida and Hynix. Not only this, but built in RAM on the iPhone 6S will see its capacity increase from 1 GB to 2 GB. Given the increasing performance requirements of todays apps and softwares, a RAM increase on the iPhone 6S should work out very well for the Cupertino manufacturer, that is more resilient to market trends as a rule of thumb. Sounds interesting? We sure think so. Should Apple increase RAM on the next iPhone? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
