iPhone 12 Lineup Expected to Feature Up to 6GB of RAM

Apple plans to release one 5.4-inch, one 6.7-inch, and two 6.1-inch iPhone models in 2020, according to UBS analysts Timothy Arcuri and Munjal Shah. While the analysts expect all four iPhones to be equipped with OLED displays, they believe other features like camera specifications and RAM will vary by model.

In a research note shared with MacRumors, the analysts provided an overview of the four iPhones they expect in 2020:

  • 6.7-inch iPhone: triple-lens rear camera with 3D sensing and 6GB of RAM
  • 6.1-inch iPhone: triple-lens rear camera with 3D sensing and 6GB of RAM
  • 6.1-inch iPhone: dual-lens rear camera and 4GB of RAM
  • 5.4-inch iPhone: dual-lens rear camera and 4GB of RAM

The camera specifications line up with those shared by reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo last month, while 6GB of RAM in the two highest end models lines up with a prediction shared by Barclays analysts in November.

5G is expected to be a key feature of high-end iPhones in 2020. UBS conducted a survey of over 9,000 consumers across the United States, Germany, Japan, China, and the United Kingdom and found that 22 percent of respondents view 5G support as something that is worth upgrading smartphones for.

Because Android needs twice the RAM to do the same job, and then it still isn't as efficient.

I'll keep saying this... it's GOOD that Apple is conservative with RAM because it forces developers to not be LAZY! Developers are notoriously lazy, when they are allowed to be. Many feel that optimizing their app is an *optional* task. Now, I don't use Xcode, but I believe it does some optimizations automatically?

I build websites and my home-grown framework puts optimization first at every level, and the results speak for themselves. Fastest websites on the planet. It blows my mind how many wasteful, bloated websites are out there. A little effort to write optimal code and compress images and assets goes a long way to make the world a happier place.
