Apple’s new iPhones aren’t expected to arrive before the fall and until they’re announced we won’t stop hearing about news, leaks, rumors, and predictions related to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The latest analyst prediction suggests that the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Plus is going to have 3GB RAM because it needs the extra memory to meet high processing requirements for the dual-camera setup that it’s rumored to sport at the back.
This prediction comes from infamous KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a good track record with these things, he predicts that Apple’s dual-iSight camera will be available on all iPhone 7 Plus models.
Kuo maintains his earlier prediction that the larger iPhone is going to feature 3GB RAM as it’s required for dual-camera image processing. This will be a welcome improvement for many over the 2GB of RAM that’s found in existing iPhone 6s models. The smaller 4.7 inch iPhone 7 is expected to retain 2GB of RAM.
The dual-camera modules are likely to be supplied by Sony and LG Innotek, they are said to produce images comparable to DSLR cameras. Kuo expects that Apple will ship up to 30 million units of the iPhone 7 Plus in the second half of this year.
Apple traditionally launches new iPhones in the fall and currently there’s no reason to believe that the company is going to break from tradition in 2016.
