According to popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will release the iPhone 7 Plus in September 2016 with an all-new A10 chipset and upgraded 3GB of RAM.
In a recent research note, Kuo noted that Apple is working on two new iPhones for next year, with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display sizes. Unlike this year, Apple may decide to differentiate the bigger model further by adding 3GB of RAM to it. The regular 4.7-inch iPhone is expected to retain the same 2GB of RAM as the current iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
Aside from these hardware differences, both smartphones will reportedly come with a new design that will focus on a razor-thin profile. Apparently Apple wishes to make next year’s iPhones as thin as 6mm, even thinner than the iPad Air 2.
Ming-Chi Kuo has a very respectable track record with regards to Apple rumors and had in fact accurately predicted the key specifications of this year’s iPhone 6s duo, including the use of Force Touch technology and the stronger Series 7000 aluminum build.
