iPhone X has a 2,716 mAh battery and 3GB of RAM

Smartphone leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer has dug up Apple’s filing with the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center (TENAA) confirming that iPhone X has a 2,716mAh battery and 3GB of RAM.

In comparison, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have 1,960mAh and 2,900mAh batteries, respectively. The recently released iPhone 8 probably comes with a 1,821mAh capacity battery and iPhone 8 Plus packs in a 2,675mAh cell, according to the TENAA listings for the devices that Hemmerstoffer uncovered earlier.

In other words, iPhone X has a bigger battery than the cell in iPhone 8, one of the longest-lasting iPhones on the market. Interestingly, the filing lists a rose gold version of Apple’s flagship phone even though iPhone X comes in just two colors.

The previous filing suggests iPhone 8 has 2GB of RAM and iPhone 8 Plus has three.

The 3GB of RAM on Plus models has become the norm due to increased data processing needs stemming from dual-lens cameras (for this reason, iPhone 7 Plus comes outfitted with 3GB of RAM, a gigabyte more than iPhone 7).

iOS and Apple’s A11 chip are, of course, fully optimized for this RAM.
