The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are not too old, but rumours are flooding in about Apple’s next iPhones, presumably called the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. We’re expecting big things from the new phones including the possibility of dual-cameras and wireless charging.
A new forecast coming from analyst house TrendForce confirms recent reports that Apple is planning to offer a 256GB version of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models along with the 128GB storage option. Apple is expected to give up on the 64GB storage version. The report also reveals that the upcoming devices could feature 32GB of memory as their base models, thus getting rid of the 16GB version altogether.
Also, the display would not be a part of the upgrade line-up, so the one that’s currently available on the iPhone 6s will be offered on the next models, probably with small changes.
“The display of iPhone 7, however, will not feature a significant breakthrough. This also signifies that LTPS LCD has reached its peak in development and is unlikely to make another big technological leap in the future,” the analysts estimate.
The Plus model will come with 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM, and this is very likely to be one of the features exclusively available on the 5.5-inch version. On the other hand, the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 will come with 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM and will feature only a small camera update.
“The 5.5-inch iPhone 7 will be the first in series to have 3GB of memory in the form of four stacked 6GB mono-die modules. The additional memory is used to process the images taken from the dual-camera,” the report reads.
