iOS developer Steve Troughton-Smith’s been able to contribute to the rumor mill of late given what he’s been able to glean from Apple’s beta software.

In his latest contribution, he pointed out that the iPhone 8 will feature 2GB, while the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X will both feature 3GB. For comparison’s sake, the iPhone 7 Plus features 3GB of RAM and the iPhone 7 packs 2GB. As you can see, there’s not a huge difference in terms of RAM specs here but

Smith also mentioned that the iPhone X could incorporate a 12MP rear-facing camera with support for 4K video at 60 FPS and 1080p video at 240 FPS. The front camera could feature a 7 megapixel sensor with support for 1080p video at 30 FPS.

The near-final beta of iOS 11 has revealed some neat things, including a suggestion that Apple will be incorporating an “A11 Fusion” processor into its next-gen iPhone. The A11 Fusion is expected to have two cores for intensive processing needs, and four high-efficiency cores as well.

Unearthed by Steve Troughton-Smith on Sunday, the iOS 11 leak from the end of the week reveal CPUs labeled 0 through 5 —a total of six. Without expanding on further delving, the developer originally claimed that four are the high-powered “Mistral” cores, with two “Monsoon” cores supplementing the four for lesser computational needs.

As of now, the current A10 Fusion processor found in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models feature a pair of high performance cores as well as a pair of high efficiency cores. The A10X in the iPad Pro refresh from WWDC has three high performance “Hurricane” cores, and three high efficiency “Zephyr” cores.
