iPhone 5 1GB RAM May Bring The Brand Down This October
Foxconn is in a hiring spree as iPhone 5 production will begin later this summer, and WSJ and other reliable news sites are regularly publishing news suggesting the same. Now, even BGR has come up with the similar story, which the blog site claim is based on its own reliable sources.
According to BGR’s Geller, “the final model of Apple’s upcoming iPhone hasn’t begun production yet.” If you are aware of Apple tradition, then you must have noticed that products usually pass through several stages before getting entering the manufacturing phase, and a couple of these stages include the “engineering proof test” and the “design proof test.” Currently, Apple iPhone 5 is in the EVT3 stage, which is the 3rd revision of the engineering test stage, and it has not really entered the DVT stage.
The reports published lately claimed that iPhone 5 prototypes have NFC chips and 4G LTE radio, likewise, the recently released iOS 6 builds carry more details about a possible Ax-series chip variation for the phone, including an ARM S5L8950X program processor with support from 1GB RAM and mysterious SGX543 Graphical processing unit.
Even with 1 GB of RAM iPhone 5 will feel the pressure from the 2GB RAM offered by the rival Galaxy S3, which is currently ruling the market as the best smartphone money can buy.
