According to a report circulating on Chinese social media, the new iPhone 8 will come in 64 GB, 256 GB, and — for the first time — a new high-end 512 GB storage option.
Both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7s and 7s Plus (the latter two of which will offer minor upgrades on the existing iPhone) will reportedly ditch the current 32 GB base model storage for a 64 GB entry level model. This would match the new iPad Pro devices, which start out with 64GB base storage.
The inclusion of a 512GB option would make sense, seeing as how Apple is reportedly keen to market the iPhone 8 as a pro-level handset. The first Apple device to come with 512GB was the 2017-era iPad Pro models.
All storage option models for the new iPhone 8 will also come with 3 GB of RAM, the Chinese report claims.
Big upgrades in the iPhone world
In addition to reportedly coming with more storage, the iPhone 8 is set to come with other upgrades to make it Apple’s biggest upgrade since 2014’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The most noticeable upgrade is set to be an edge-to-edge OLED display with no Home button.
