Purported A8 Chip Reveals iPhone 6 Will Have 1GB of RAM

Posted by · 10175 views · Translate

Today photos of the iPhone 6 logic board featuring an A8 processor surfaced online. Looking closer at the chip it can be determined that Apple's next generation smartphone will likely have 1GB of RAM.

MacRumors forum member commander.data spotted a part number on the A8 revealsing that the package-on-package contains Hynix RAM.

Based on Hynix's part number format, the character in the eighth position reveals the amount of RAM in the package, with an "8" denoting 8 Gb (1 GB) and a "B" denoting 16 Gb (2 GB). While it is a bit difficult to read the part number clearly given the distance and angle in the photo, our staff and several posters in our forum agree that the character very much appears to be an "8", indicating 1 GB of RAM.

Check out the photo below for a close up look at the part number. If you haven't already seen the leaked logic board photos click here. Feld & Volk has also managed to combine leaked parts to assemble an iPhone 6 that powers on. Watch that video here.

1GB of RAM exactly what my 5S got time to cross it of the Christmas list and wait for the 6S for some reason Apple keeps all the good stuff for the Ss pretty much fooling everybody to buy twice which I must admit a good business plan because everybody falls for it.

What do you mean fool? No one can predict what newer iPhones have if all you see is just the newer shell and beyond that, rumors guess if it will have what it may come with or not, so it's a gamble to buy the 6. Compared to ram, Apple may still have more power in the chips no matter how high the ram is.

We don't buy your gullible lies. Your joke is what shit is. Gb of ram is part if the power, the main power is how much ghz goes in the chip. Sony is a dummy. Besides it's not what looks good, it's which ones offer more in and out.
