The next iPhone will be a much beefier bit of kit all-round with more processing brawn and more memory, handsets undergoing trials by the Apple corps suggest.
According to 9 To 5 Mac, the tech giant is testing iPhones with 1GB of RAM, which would bring the handset more in line with some of its top-end Android rivals.
The prototypes, purportedly disguised in the shell of the iPhone 4/4S, also feature a tweaked version of the A5X processor that features in the new iPad, the site claims.
Evidence of Apple’s plans follows reports last month that the sixth-gen iPhone will ditch the current design for a robust unibody construction.
This would appear to chime with the company’s attempt to keep the form factor under wraps with disguised handsets.
Other spec sheet features being mooted for the kit informally dubbed the iPhone 5 include 4G network support for super-fast browsing and a 4.6-inch screen.
Expected to drop later this year, the handset is also rumoured to sport a waterproof coating for its innards.
