Alleged iPhone 6s Plus Benchmark Shows 1GB of RAM
Apple is doing it again. A purported Geekbench 3 screenshot has surfaced online, which shows that the upcoming iPhone 6s Plus will come with just 1GB of RAM.
Further, as shown in the picture below, the iPhone 6s Plus will run on iOS 9.0, rock an Apple A9 chipset clocked at 2.0 GHz and feature 989MB of RAM. If accurate, the processor’s clock speed sounds impressive, but the lagging RAM count would be a big disappointment.
Note that the model “iPhone 8,2” is the same identifier that mobile marketing platform Fiksu recently found in its web logs and referred it to as iPhone 6s Plus.
Given every Apple fanboy is expecting the iPhone 6s Duo to pack 2GB of RAM, the new piece of information comes as a big surprise. However, you should better take this with a grain of salt for now.
According to G4Games, the screenshot originated from an Instagram account of a guy who claims himself to be an Apple developer based out of Switzerland. Which makes the source sketchy, to say at least.
Especially, when a much more authoritative insider has reported that the iPhone 6s would have 2GB of RAM.
