Apple Watch To Have 512MB RAM, 4GB Storage

A report out of investment research firm Cowen and Company has attempted to ascertain a more detailed see at the specifications of Apple's Watch with an examination of the device's supply chain. At this stage of production, it has been revealed the watch will sport 512Mega Bytes (MB) of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 4GB of internal storage.

The Random-Access Memory (RAM) will come by way of Samsung, Micron, and Hynix, while the 4GB of onboard DRandom-Access Memory (RAM) is expected to be supplied by a number of major NAND manufacturers.

Timothy Arcuri of the Cowen Group believes that Apple could potentially ship a variant of the Apple Watch with 8GB of onboard memory, but it is likely that the 4GB model will be the standard configuration.

Also reported is a wireless combination chip similar to the iPhone 5s's Broadcom BCM43342, which sports a GPS radio. This goes against Apple's announcement that the Watch will have to be tethered to an iPhone to provide GPS data, which means that it could either be a modified version that doesn't have a GPS sensor, or Apple will disable onboard GPS functionality to save on battery life.

More notably, Apple Watch will be one of the first smartwatches to feature a dedicated system-on-chip. Unlike other smartwatch models which utilize smartphone SoC's, Apple's S1 SoC is expected to provide superior power efficiency due to its specific design. Either way, current reports indicate daily charging for the Apple Watch, but it's likely Cupertino will be doing more work in that department leading up to the early 2015 launch date.
