The iPhone 6 is one of the most eagerly awaited gadgets of the year, but latest reports have suggested it might have some shortcomings.
Despite being set for a bump in stature, the handset could look rather similar on a specs front, with 1GB of RAM tipped to feature on the upcoming device.
Teased via a series of leaked schematics, the iPhone 6’s mediocre RAM offering has been tipped to be the same as the existing iPhone 5S. In contrast, many leading Android handset now run 2GB of RAM or more.
Yes, the 4GB of RAM reportedly heading to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 might be overkill, but that doesn’t mean we would be completely happy with just 1GB of memory on the iPhone 6.
Although Apple’s iOS operating system is better optimised than Android to carefully manage the handset’s memory, it is hard to see the iPhone 6 performing on a par to the Note 4 at this rate.
The leaks have shown claimed iPhone 6 documents with one of the handset’s papers revealingly entitled “POP-FIJI-1GB-DDR-BO-BGA”.
This 1GB of RAM is expected to feature alongside a new A8 processor and the WWDC unveiled iOS 8 operating system.
Based on a mass of recent iPhone 6 leaks, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 rival will also benefit from an all new design, with a larger, 4.7-inch body featuring rounded edges and a slimline brushed metal finish.
The iPhone 6 release date is expected to be held on September 19. It will reportedly follow the handset’s formal unveiling on September 9.
