The extra RAM along with the faster and more power efficient 3nm chips should ensure that the iPhone 15 Pro series will have a substantial performance advantage over the rest of the field. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 unveiled this year for 2023 Android smartphones uses the refined TSMS 4nm enhanced chip process and Android manufacturers may need to wait until 2024 for getting a 3nm chip process.
Currently, Apple is using the 4nm A16 Bionic chip on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, offering great performance and power efficiency. The standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus rely on the older 5nm A15 Bionic chip with the 5-core GPU from the iPhone 13 Pro.
The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are expected to get the A16 Bionic chip from the iPhone 14 Pro, and the new Dynamic Island design. Apple is expected to use a new 48MP camera sensor on the standard models, allowing for digital zooming. The iPhone 15 Pro is also said to get a 6x periscope zoom camera.
