As you can see from the screenshots below, battery capacity and RAM are circled in red. Interestingly enough, the screenshot below shows a colour option of Rose Gold (via Google Translate), suggesting Apple had planned to debut a third iPhone X colour, or a third option may be available for Chinese users:

The 2,716mAh battery in iPhone X is larger than the 2,691mAh battery in iPhone 8 Plus, but not as big as the 2,900mAh battery in the iPhone 7 Plus. Apple says iPhone X will get up to two hours more battery than iPhone 7.

Below we see the A11 Bionic chip clocked at 2.4GHz and the listing of 3GB of RAM.


When iOS 11 GM leaked, we already found out iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus would have 3GB of RAM. Given iOS optimizations, even with “just” 3GB RAM iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus blow away Android competitors with way more RAM.

    I dunno why it wasn’t stressed or mentioned that the iPhone 7+ also has 3 GB RAM.

    That’s weird. Apple’s official site says iPhone X has shorter battery life than iPhone 8 Plus both data use and phone wise yet it has larger capacity. Also, OLED is supposed to take less battery than LCD…..weird…

    MY guess is that OLED takes less battery but the bigger screen is on par with a smaller LCD. Also, maybe the FaceID system needs to be always running in background so it consumes power?
