A leaked logic board from the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 has revealed some useful information, including an A8 chip with 1 GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 16 GB flash storage, suggesting that Apple may offer a 16 GB option at the low end and introduce a 128 GB model at the high end for one or both of the rumoured iPhone 6 versions (via MacRumors).

“An assembled logic board from the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 has revealed a number of pieces of information already, and it appears from one of the photos that the A8 chip on the board does indeed include 1 GB of LPDDR3 RAM. 

A silk-screened part number on the A8 reveals that the package-on-package contains Hynix RAM. Based on Hynix’s part number format, the character in the eighth position reveals the amount of RAM in the package, with an “8” denoting 8 Gb (1 GB) and a “B” denoting 16 Gb (2 GB)”.

Earlier today, a new set of photos from Feld & Volk and Sonny Dickson confirmed the presence of an NFC chip on a leaked logic board of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, confirming the Cupertino giant’s entrance into the fast growing world of mobile payments.

There are less than two weeks until the official release of the iPhone 6.

    Why can’t they just drop 16GB and make 32GB substitute it?!

    Because most people don’t really need it. But more importantly, it’s one of the main factors in pushing cloud services forward. It might sound wrong for them to do such a thing, but really, it’s a brilliant business strategy. People will keep buying the 16GB model as it cost the least, and it does have enough space for the average user. And when people do run out of space, they will either go to cloud services, or look into buying a 32GB/64GB model next. Either way, it will be beneficial to Apple. Because first, Apple obviously makes more if you buy a higher GB iPhone. Second, going to cloud services is exactly what Apple wants you to do. It will be the doorway to everything else with an Apple logo. Extensive services, photo sharing, etc.etc. The cloud is the backbone of the whole Apple user experience. It’s one of the things that sets them apart from other companies.

    It would be nice if they could toss a little more ram in there, as it gets quite annoying in safari with the constant page refreshes when multitasking. I hate never being dropped back into a page at the same spot I left it previously.
