An Apple-designed A10 chip that will power the next iPhone should be outfitted with 3GB of RAM on the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus model, according to previous analyst reports from KGI Securities.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has twice claimed the next 5.5-inch iPhone, tentatively referred to as the iPhone 7 Plus, will carry 3GB of RAM for improved performance, and now DigiTimes echoes that in a new report.

The rumour that iPhone 7 Plus might sport a dual camera at the back has been doing the rounds recently. Now, noted KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo is adding more credibility to the rumours by saying that the dual camera is going to be a must-have on all high-end smartphones


The bank also added Apple may still release a special new color, either black or dark blue, to help distinguish the new phone from earlier launches. That rumor seems to have been debunked, but maybe Deutsche Bank knows something we don’t.


Previously, Kuo said Apple had toyed with the idea of offering two different models — one with the advanced camera, and one without. But Apple ultimately chose to include the high-end camera in all versions of its new 5.5-inch iPhone this year, according to the KGI analyst.
