Tech analyst Jeff Pu has weighed in with his expectations for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max handsets. Pu says the new devices, likely to debut this September, will boast more RAM, a titanium frame, and solid-state buttons with haptic feedback.
Pu outlined his expectations for the iPhone 15 lineup in a research note today for Hong Kong investment firm Haitong International Securities (shared by MacRumors). Pu says the iPhone 15 lineup will include a 6.1-inch iPhone 15, 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus, 6.1-inch iPhone 15 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Pu expects the Pro models to feature a titanium frame, as well as solid-state volume and power buttons with haptic feedback from two extra Taptic Engines. He also expects the Pro models to boast 8GB of RAM, up from 6GB in the iPhone 14 Pro models.
The “Pro” models will be powered by an A17 Bionic chip manufactured with TSMC’s 3nm process, while the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus to be equipped with the A16 Bionic chip and 6GB of RAM, said Pu. All four models will have a USB-C port and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X70 modem for 5G and LTE, he said.
Pu also expects the telephoto lens on the iPhone 15 Pro Max to feature periscope technology for increased optical zoom. Meanwhile, Pu expects the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus to sport a 48-megapixel rear camera lens like on iPhone 14 Pro models.
Pu’s expectations jibe with those of other leakers, including Ming-Chi Kuo and leaker “ShrimpApplePro.”
