Benchmarks is the best source right now

Think it needs it as multitasking wasn’t amazing on my x with 3GB

I’m pretty sure the days of the Plus model having any hardware advantage (save the battery size) are over.

Going forward, I believe all specs from RAM, camera systems, etc., will be the same. Only differentiating features will be the screen size and increase battery capacity.

Yeah it has 4GB same as the max

As apple noted in their presser, They’re identical with the only difference being display and battery (oh and what looks to be the asymmetrical hole design on the bottom of the phone from hands on videos at the event...strange design choice imo)

4GB will be great. I have zero issues with 3 on my X, that extra GB might make a noticeable difference in multitasking.

Wow, if those benchmarks are accurate it’s not much better than my X scores.
Those benchmarks don’t test the Neural Engine for better faster FaceID or the Image Signal Processor responsible for better photos with Portrait Lighting and Depth Control. And they say nothing about the all important energy efficiency of the computation. At this point benchmarking becomes meaningless.

Now that hthe phones are in hands of reviewers, has any more benchmarks leaked to confirm 4gb in the XS?
