Barclays analysts predict next year’s iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will likely boast 6GB of RAM, up from the 4GB in the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Barclays also says production of the “iPhone SE 2” will begin in February.
Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis and his associates recently visited Asia, meeting with companies in Apple’s supply chain, and based on the information they’ve gathered, have now shared their expectations for the 2020 iPhone lineup.
In a research note (via MacRumors), Barclays analysts said that in addition to the 6GB of RAM, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will also feature rear-facing 3D sensing, as well as mmWave support for higher-performing 5G.
Apple’s base model, the iPhone 12, is expected to include 4GB of RAM, that same as the iPhone 11. Although the iPhone 12 is also expected to offer 5G support, Barclays didn’t indicate whether the device will support mmWave, sub-6GHz, or both.
As for the much-rumored “iPhone SE 2,” the analysts say it is still being readied for production, which should begin in February. The “budget-priced” iPhone is expected to resemble the iPhone 8, with a 4.7-inch display and a Touch ID-enabled Home button. However, it is also expected to boast a faster A13 chip, with 3GB of RAM.
