Did you hear that iPhone 8 release date may get a delay? We have much more bad news. Apple’s iPhone 8 may also feature less RAM than some have hoped. The news is that iPhone 8 might not have 4 GB of RAM according to Trend Force.
The Upcoming Apple’s iPhone 8 Might Not Have 4 GB Of RAM – It Will Feature 3 GB Of RAM Like iPhone 7 Plus
In a note to investors, researcher Trend Force said that iPhone 8 likely would not feature 5 GB or even 4 GB of RAM. Instead, Apple will feature 3 GB of RAM. Apple will upgrade its RAM to 4 GB in 2018 models. The TrendForce was obtained by BGR.
Smartphone innovations start to slow; companies are trying to explore ways to outpower their competitors. It was all about cameras in 2016, Apple introduced and featured a dual lens rear camera and Google tout “world’s best smartphone camera” about Google Pixel.
In 2017, the screen has become the center of attention. Phone makers are removing the unsightly bezels and ditching the physical home button to make space for more display. Both the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 have already done that. One Plus probably would do the same when they launch One Plus 5. Apple is also considering the same design choice for the upcoming iPhone 8.
Under the hood, RAM has become a crucial consideration. Smartphone companies make the pitch to customers that there is more RAM inside their smartphone. The better the smartphone’s performance, especially when it comes to multi-tasking.
However, Apple has not bundled much with RAM in its iPhone models. In 2016, iPhone 7 Plus featured 3 GB of RAM. Most of the other flagship models on stores shelves coming with 4 GB of RAM.
Trend Force also said that the average memory of smartphones this year would jump by 33.4% to 3.2 GB. Though, that is down from the 3.7 GB.
