As some of you might recall, last year there were several rumors and analyst reports concerning iPhone 5S (before its market release, of course) suggesting that Apple will fit 128 GB of storage in its upcoming flagship device. As we all know it didn’t happen, but interestingly enough, a similar rumor is now reoccurring ahead of the iPhone 6′s release. This time around however, there seems to be some harder evidence than last year to support the theory.
In a nutshell, the guys over at GeekBar (a phone repair company) reportedly unearthed a new schematic for the iPhone 6, which suggests that the upcoming flagship phone will sport 128 GB of storage. Oddly enough though, the 32 GB model seems to be missing in action. Check out the rest of the story right after the break.
Leaked iPhone 6 Schematics Confirm 128 GB Version
According to this new data, the iPhone 6 will be offered in 16, 64 and 128 GB flavors. The 16 GB memory will be provided by Toshiba and Hynix; the 64 GB memory will be supplied by Hynix, Toshiba, and SanDisk; while the beefier 128 GB units will allegedly be delivered by Toshiba alone. Once again, the 32 GB model seems to be missing in action, but this doesn’t necessarily confirm that Apple won’t release one.
Whatever the case, the iPhone 6 will most likely lack expansion slots for external memory – much like the previous models have – so 128 GB of on-board storage does sound quite appealing. On the other hand, chances are that the 128 GB model will cost a small fortune, and that’s probably the reason why only one supplier appears to be handling the orders, hinting at a lower number of iPhone 6s with 128 GB of storage being produced.
What’s your take on these latest developments? Will more internal memory persuade you into buying the iPhone 6, assuming of course that you aren’t already convinced?
