TrendForce, a leading marker intelligence firm, reports that Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will bring huge internal hardware improvements. The upcoming incremental model of iPhone will not only comes with more RAM, the firm says that it will also feature Force Touch display and will offer a minimum of 32GB storage option.
The firm claims that the next generation iPhone models will not only get twice as much RAM as current generation iPhones, the RAM module will also be faster than the current model with an upgrade to faster LPDDR4 modules that use 20nm or 25nm manufacturing processes.
This is not the first report that claims next-generation iPhones to come loaded with a faster LPDDR4 technology RAM modules; a Taiwanese website TechNews Taiwan also made the same claim of faster RAM in upcoming iPhones.
Samsung and S Hynix are reportedly on-board to supply these new RAM modules for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
Other than the RAM, report also talks about the storage options that iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus will comes with. Just like its major rivals, Apple is also reportedly going to ditch the 16GB option and make 32GB of storage the minimum for iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus. The company will offer the device in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacity options, says TrendForce.
Like many other recent reports, TrendForce also claims that the new iPhones will be getting Force Touch technology in their displays. The same pressure sensitive touchscreen technology found in the Apple Watch, and recent Macbook lineups.
Finally, the report also suggests that Apple will be using thinner LED backlight packages in its next generation iPhones with additional LED lights. This will allos Apple to design even thinner iPhones, however we probably won’t see any design changes in iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. However, iPhone 7 could get this reported thinner LED backlit technology. Apple will stick with its current LED chip suppliers based in Japan, says report.
The report says that iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s will go into production this June, and launch in third-quarter with an expected shipment of 24 million units.
