Analyst: Plan to equip iPhone7 with 32 GB storage up
A Chinese analyst divulged a stirring yet captivating upgrade on Apple’s forefront product.
Kevin Wang, director of market research at acclaimed analytics firm IHS Technology, posted on Chinese social media site Weibo that a supply chain investigation revealed an exciting plan to upgrade iPhone7 with 2GB RAM and 32GB or more of entry-level storage, according to a report by Forbes.
Although the previous version of Apple’s flagship phone, iPhone6, is already equipped with 2GB RAM, the doubling of storage from 16GB to 32GB is a relief for millions of iPhone clients. Wang’s ‘good news’ was akin to a claim made by KGI’s Ming Chi-Kuo–iPhone7 would have 3GB RAM as an underpinning requirement for a dual-camera feature.
The analyst did not uncover further details on the 5.5-inch phone’s additional features.
This is in relation to iPhone customers’ insistence to increase the storage because the current 16GB storage can only stockpile only a handful of apps and media.
Other tech rumors surmised of a possible ‘renovation’ of Apple’s flagship product. In a report by tech news site 9to5Mac, the ‘slimmer’ iPhone7 will have restructured antenna lines compared to the previous iPhone installments. New camera optics will be visible as a rear dual-camera system will be rooted for enhanced quality of videos and photos. After iPhone7, the iPhone8 is widely believed to be glammed up in an ‘all-glass’ design.
