Apple recently announced its hotly-anticipated iPhone 5, and the smartphone features several improvements over its predecessors, including a new A6 processor. Speculations were rife that Apple would be boosting the RAM in the new iPhone, and unobscured parts shown during Apple's event presentation have disclosed the details.
At the Sept. 12 press event, Apple showed images of the A6 processor and all its corresponding parts and numbers were clearly visible. After the event, fans posted a confirmation on a forum which revealed that the iPhone 5 has 1GB of RAM, deduced on the basis of the numbers listed on the A6 chip.
Additionally, iFixit teamed up with MacRumors and concluded that the A6 chip supports 1GB of RAM.
The site also posted a chart above from Samsung's 2012 Product Solutions Guide. The guide lists product numbers of various memory parts that Samsung sells.
"The iPhone 5's A6 part number lines up with the family of 8 Gigabit mobile DRAMs which translates into 1GB of RAM. The A5 part family is also listed and accurately shows 512MB of RAM (4 Gigabit)," the report added.
Traditionally, Apple is known for not divulging the RAM details of its new iPhone. After the launch, a guessing game ensues, where aficionados and experts attempt to figure out the details.
