A GeekBench leak (first spotted by GforGames) shows off the specs on the iPhone 6s. It has an A9 chipset clocked at 2GHz, iOS 9 in-built and what seems to be just 989MB of RAM.

A few months ago, noted KGI analyst Ming Chi Kuo had said that both the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will come with 2GB RAM. He further noted that the RAM is most likely to be a LPDDR4 RAM, which is must faster and hits higher clock speeds than the LPDDR3 RAM found on the iPhone 6.

So far we know, that the upcoming iPhone 6s is said to have a 12-megapixel camera, Force Touch tech and stronger casing to avoid Bendgate. Apple could also be scrapping the 16GB variant, and make 32GB the base variant. We recommend you to take this latest leak with a pinch of salt.
