KGI predicts iPhone 7 will have an A10 chip with 3GB of RAM

According to a research note by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, Apple’s next iPhone will be equipped with 3GB of RAM. This means it will have fifty percent more RAM than this year’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. More on this after the jump.

In the research note, obtained by AppleInsider, Ming-Chi says that the ‘iPhone 7’ (that’s what we’re calling it right now) will again come in two sizes, a 4.7-inch model and a larger 5-inch model. The smaller 4.7-inch model is expected to have 2GB RAM, the same as the current iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, while the larger iPhone (‘Plus’) model will have 3GB of RAM.

This will be the first time Apple differentiates their two iPhones models in terms of RAM and not just optical image stabilization or battery capacity. The extra RAM in the Plus model will mean that the device will be able to handle multitasking better, Safari tabs won’t have to reload whenever you switch to them, apps and games won’t have to reload when switching to them either.

The note didn’t say anything about the design of the next iPhone model but if previous years are anything to go by, we’re expecting some external changes. If you remember, Ming-Chi said that the iPhone 7 will be as thin as the new iPod Touch, measuring at around 6.0-6.5mm.
