Next-gen iPhones might have as much RAM as Galaxy S23


Last updated: October 28th, 2022 at 05:10 UTC+02:00

Be it RAM, storage space, screen resolution, or battery capacity, Samsung’s Galaxy S phones have always offered better hardware specifications than competing iPhones. However, with the rising importance of software optimization, the South Korean firm is moving its focus away from hardware specs. Now, Apple is catching up, and its next-generation iPhones might offer as much RAM as the Galaxy S23.

According to a new report from Taiwanese research firm TrendForce, Apple might equip the iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro Max models with 8GB of RAM. That’s 2GB more than current-generation iPhones and as much RAM as the Galaxy S23 and the Galaxy S23+. 2023 will be the first time Samsung’s competing high-end phone (Galaxy S23+) will have as much RAM as its competing iPhone model (iPhone 15 Pro).

And that’s not the only aspect where the iPhone 15 series will match the Galaxy S23. The report also claims that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will feature a 10x optical zoom camera with a periscope lens, similar to the Galaxy S23 Ultra. With the EU mandate, Apple is forced to offer a USB Type-C port with its next-generation iPhones.

iPhones are usually better than Galaxy phones in video recording, especially in low-light conditions, but the Galaxy S23 Ultra is expected to bring massive improvements. With similar RAM, storage, camera zoom, and video recording capabilities, the competition between the Galaxy S23 series and the iPhone 15 lineup will be fiercer than ever. And it could all come down to the quality of software optimization.
