While the iPhone 12 release date is still a long way off, details about the upcoming gadget continue to pour in. The latest information should be a pleasant surprise for fans as the flagship smartphone is said to sport the largest memory ever on an Apple phone.

The latest buzz is that Apple’s premium models, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, will likely sport 6GB of RAM, according to MacRumors. This is based on the information gathered by Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis and his team after their recent visit to Asia to meet up with Apple’s suppliers in the region.

If this prediction is true, iPhone 12’s memory capacity will be 50 percent larger than the brand’s current premium models. Apple’s top phones, the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max, feature a 4GB RAM at the moment.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 12 base model will have 4G of RAM, which is equal to the current-gen iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Apple’s move to equip a 6GB RAM on the iPhone 12 likely reflects the company’s determination to improve its mobile gadgets’ competitiveness in this area. PCMag noted that the company’s previous flagships tended to have lower memory compared to the flagships of its competitors, a trend that was only broken with iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro when the gadgets arrived with 4 GB of RAM.

The Barclays analysts likewise confirmed one iPhone 12 Pro feature that previous rumors have been reporting – the upcoming smartphone will finally be 5G enabled. The gadget will also feature a 3D time-of-flight camera.

Aside from the upcoming flagship, Curtis and his team likewise touched on a few details about the rumored iPhone SE 2. The analysts revealed that the phone will enter into production by February next year and will likely be released by March.

The iPhone SE 2 is expected to have 3GB of RAM and will be powered by the A13 chip. The mobile phone will have a 4.7-inch display and a Touch ID system will be built into its physical home button.
