Apple's upcoming flagship devices, dubbed as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, have been in the news, though their launch is almost a year away. 

The Cupertino giant is very unlikely to reveal any information about its products like in the past but leaks usually do the needful for Apple fans and curious gadget lovers. This time too, several features of the company's flagship devices -- iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus – have surfaced though one has to take them with a pinch of salt.

The 4.7-inch iPhone 7 will come packed with 2 GB RAM, which is the same as the iPhone 6s, but the larger iPhone 7 Plus will house a 3 GB RAM, according to a research note by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities obtained by AppleInsider. However, both the iPhone variants are expected to be powered by a new A10 chip.

Kuo, who has a good track record in predicting details about Apple's products, including the iPhone 6s, had earlier said in a note to investors (via DigiTimes) that the Cupertino giant is planning to make its upcoming devices, possibly the iPhone 7, super slim -- between 6.0 and 6.5 mm thick. It is not confirmed but if it turns true, it will be as thin as the iPod touch and iPad Air 2.

There are also reports that the upcoming next-generation smartphone will come with a new design, perhaps without the iconic Home button, Samsung's OLED screen instead of the LCD, camera with six-element lenses, sapphire glass, wireless charger, water proof and complete metal body.
