The next-gen iPhone could carry 3GB of RAM.

That’s the current rumor, as cited by noted KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

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.

The report falls short of specifying whether the 4.7-inch, 5.5-inch, or both next-gen iPhone models will carry 3GB of RAM. Still, this would mark an increase over the 2GB of RAM found in the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and iPhone SE models.

The rumor comes from a mixed track record over at DigiTimes, albeit Kuo’s backing adds some credence to it.

Finally, Deutsche Bank has also thrown its weight behind the 3GB of RAM rumor, although its prediction is likely based on Kuo rather than independent sources.

As always, stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
