Research firm TrendForce has come up with some new info on Apple’s upcoming iPhones, including shipment estimates.
According to the report, Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus could come with 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM from Samsung and SK Hynix. A number of Android flagships launched this year such as the LG G Flex 2, HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge come with LPDDR4 memory, so it is no surprise that Apple would also be using the latest memory technology on its iPhones.
TrendForce also says that the iPhone models this year could come with a base storage option of 32GB, up from 16GB on the current iPhone 6/6Plus models. This is definitely great news if true, as 16GB is too little memory in 2015, especially on a flagship smartphone.
Other details mentioned by TrendForce include a new thinner backlight module, 12MP rear camera, and Force Touch.
The research firm believes the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models will be going into mass production by next month, with an early September launch being quite possible. It expects initial shipments to be around 25 million units, surpassing the 50 million mark by the fourth quarter of the year.
