The release of the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus is just days away, but the device is already out there to special industry players like China’s TENAA and benchmarking site Geekbench.
During Apple’s keynote, the Cupertino company did not go into details about the specific amount of RAM that is packed in both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Instead, the focus was more on convincing the crowd of the importance of leaving out the 3.5mm headphone jack and the introduction of the new touch-based Home button, just to name but a few. In fact, Apple often portrayed the iPhone 7 as an Apple iPhone 7 Plus equivalent when it comes to performance, design and lots of other things.
However, according to the latest discoveries from different trusted sources namely TENAA (Telecommunications Equipment Certification Center) from China and benchmarking website Geekbench, the iPhone 7 Plus is packed with a superior RAM of 3GB, something that should give lots of iPhone lovers goosebumps.
This move is a definite indicator that Apple is hot on Android’s heels, a family that has had 3GB RAM on most smartphones for a while now. In fact, this has been around a long period that it has seen some companies double the package to offer 6GB RAM on their flagships, among them OnePlus 3 and ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe. The facts that the Apple iPhone 7 Plus packs a 1080p resolution screen and has a dual-lens camera setup makes the inclusion of 3GB RAM a no-brainer.
As for the standard iPhone 7, you still get a RAM of 2GB, which should also make sense given that you only get a 750p resolution and single-lens camera on the phone. As for the rest of the hardware specs, these two share a lot. They have the same A10 processor as well as similar storage offerings in the shape of 32GB, 128GB and 256GB. However, these varied storage options come in at different prices, with the standard version starting at $649 while the larger iPhone 7 Plus starting from $749.
