The next iPhone isn't expected to shake things up too dramatically from a design perspective, but could feature some improvements on the hardware side of things.
There have been rumours that it would feature 3GB RAM and a new report backs this up. Citing industry sources, Digitimes says that the new iPhone will boast 3GB RAM, which will see an increase in demand in chips and this could cause price hikes in the memory chip industry.
Its report stated, "Increasing built-in memory capacity at next-generation smartphones, including new iPhone devices, will further ramp up demand for memory products in the third quarter, said sources, noting that the mobile DRAM capacity of the next-generation iPhone is expected to increase to 3GB from 2GB previously, while those for new Android phones are expected to raise to 6GB from 4GB."
However, it's being tipped that the increase in memory will be reserved for the larger variant. This will give it more power, which may be required for the dual camera setup and Smart Connector.
Apple is expected to unveil the new suite of iPhones in September.
