Apple is set to launch three new iPhone models next week—rumoured to be the iPhone 11 (successor to iPhone XR), iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. As reported by MacRumors, a new Geekbench results posted on Monday purportedly reveals benchmark scores for the next generation iPhone XR.
The performance data was spotted by MacRumor forum member EugW. The iPhone XR successor is listed with a model number of “iPhone12,1” running iOS 13.1 with a motherboard identifier “N104AP.”
The benchmark scores on Geekbench shows that the test results were uploaded on 2 September.
The test device looks to have 4GB RAM, an increase of 1GB over the current iPhone XR.
The device will run the new six-core Apple A13 chip, which presumably will come in an identical setup to the current A12; with two high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores.
The high-performance cores in the A13 has a slightly higher clock rate to the A12, 2.66GHz against 2.49GHz. Comparing scores, there looks to be a 12-13 percent gain in single core performance over the predecessor.
What’s interesting is that multi-core scores of the A13 are nearly identical to the A12’s.
It’s highly possible that these results aren’t real, but hey, we’ll know in less than a week how powerful the new iPhone XR will be. Truth be told, Apple’s A-series chips have never been slouches.
See you on the 10th!
