All three new iPhones to have 3GB RAM, deluxe iPhone to come with "two packs of batteries", according to analyst

The three new iPhones that Apple is set to unveil in 2017 will likely come with 3GB of RAM, according to Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri.
Arcuri published a research note in late March, outlining his prognosis for several key hardware areas of the new Apple flagships. These conclusions are based on his examinations of Cupertino's supply chain, and an excerpt from the note can be found below, courtesy of MacRumors:
If this turns out to be correct, it would mean that only the smallest 4.7-inch model will actually get an upgrade in the system memory department, as last year's iPhone 7 Plus already sports 3GB RAM.
iPhone with two packs of batteries. It's photoshopped. Badly.
The research note also backs up earlier information from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who stated that the three new iPhones will stay with Lightning connectors, but will be based on a USB Type-C system in order to ensure faster charging. Kuo is known to be a reliable source of information (so much so that some call him the "Apple Guru"), thus it is very likely that Tim Cook & Co. will opt to stick with Lightning, as opposed to the infamous WSJ article which said that the 2017 models will have a USB-C port.
