Last year’s iPhone 7 Plus came with an extra gigabyte of RAM compared to its smaller screen counterpart, giving future users some encouragement to spend more money to purchase the larger handset. However, that is not going to be the case with the upcoming iPhone 8 and Apple will have to think of other ways to highlight the exclusive upgrades on the phone because according to an analyst, all three models will feature 3GB of RAM.
In Addition to 3GB of RAM, All iPhones Getting Announced in 2017 Will Also Provide Support for Fast-Charging
There have been conflicting rumors surrounding the hardware specifications of all iPhones getting unveiled during the month of September. On one hand, you have TrendForce saying that the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 will feature 3GB of RAM while the remaining two models will get 2GB RAM. Now, according to Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri (via MacRumors), all three models will be upgraded to 3GB of RAM, according to the following research 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.”
For the longest time, Apple has bundled chargers that deliver a low amount of amperage in contrast to the competition. Though you can always purchase high-amperage power bricks or multiple-port chargers down the road, there is nothing like the satisfaction of using bundled accessories because it shows that manufacturers are giving equal importance to the smartphone and its packaged accessories.
All three variants are expected to ship with Lightning ports that will support Type-C USB power delivery, meaning that they will receive current at higher rates to substantially reduce the time those devices are plugged in via the wall charger.
