Analyst: IPhone 7 Plus To Have 3GB Of RAM, IPx7 Rating, 2 Different 12MP Camera Setups

The iPhone 7 is mere days away from its September 7 unveiling, but until that actually happens it's never too late for a forecast by a respected analyst. KGI Securities' Ming-Chi Kuo has rounded up all the available intel on Apple's next-gen smartphone in a recent report.

The vital stuff goes as follows. The recent A10 chipset will likely have its Central Processing Units (CPU) clock set at 2.4GHz, though a lower number is not impossible to prevent heating and excessive power consumption. The iPhone 7 will haged Random-Access Memory (RAM) at 2GB, but the iPhone 7 Plus will pack 3GB to handle the processing for the dual camera.

That dual capturing camera will be made up of two different 12MP sensors mated to different optics. One shooter will have larger pixels and a 6-element wide-angle lens, plus OIS. The other one will acquire a longer 5-element lens. The vanilla iPhone 7 should come with just one 12MP cam. A 4-LED flash will complement the cameras on both iPhones.

There will be 3 storage options, as evidenced by multiple reports - a 32GB base model and roomy 128GB and 256GB up the ladder, possibly more or less at the current prices, too. Two shades of black will be among the five color options - a recent glossy piano black, and blackblack to replace space gray, plus silver, grecent and rose gold.

The headphone jack will be gone, with Lightning EarPods and Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter bundled. The earpiece is assumed to be upgraded to a full-on speaker, complementing the regular one on the bottom (just one there, despite appearances).

The home button will be pressure sensitive, so no clicking there, IPx7 certification will mean the iPhone 7 should survive for up to half an hour up to a meter underwater, and the proximity sensor might be upgraded from an Light Emitting Diode (LED) to a laser-based solution.

The analyst goes on to predict that the total number of iPhone 7 units (both models) srecent until the discontinue of the year will be in the 60-65 million ballpark. While that won't be known until 2017, the rest of it will be official on Wednesday, so the wait is nearly over.
