Apple tends to be notoriously quiet about the internal specs of its phones, particularly when it comes to things like battery size or RAM. But Tenaa — China’s telecommunication authority, similar to the FCC in the US — has confirmed that the iPhone X will come with 3GB of RAM and a 2,716mAh battery, as reported by Steve Hemmerstoffer (also known as OnLeaks) on Twitter.
The 3GB of RAM isn’t too notable — it’s the same as found in the iPhone 8 Plus and less than almost every other major Android flagship (which tend to start at 4GB of RAM or more). If performance is anything like Apple’s existing phones, it’s probably nothing to worry about.
More interesting is the 2,716mAh battery, which is actually bigger than the battery on the physically much larger iPhone 8 Plus, which has a 2,691mAh battery. It’s still not quite the largest battery Apple has ever put into an iPhone — that title still goes to the 2,900mAh battery in the iPhone 7 Plus. Apple claims that the iPhone X will “lasts up to 2 hours longer than iPhone 7,” although we’ll have to see how the phone holds up in actual use to find out if the larger battery actually makes a significant difference.
