We often come across Geekbench scores and listings for a number of anticipated smartphones. These listings generally give us an idea of the device’s performance, while also revealing a few key specifications and features. Now, as we get closer to the launch of the new Apple iPhones, a French blogger claims to have discovered Geekbench scores for what could possibly be Apple’s upcoming A12 SoC, expected to be featured on one of the three iPhones in 2018.
As reported by Consomac, the listing showcases a device dubbed as the iPhone 11,2. While the chipset model is not specified, it is said to come with 6 cores and has clock speeds of 2.49GHz. It’s a minor upgrade over iPhone X’s 2.39GHz. However, the listing also states the device to come with a higher 3748MB (4GB) RAM as compared to the 2815MB (3GB) RAM on the iPhone 10. The level 1 instructions have also been boasted from 32KB to 128KB.
With all the tweaks, the new device managed to get a score of 4,673 in the single-core test and 10,912 in the multi-core test. Compared to the iPhone X, the new device gets a 10 percent boost in the single core test and a 5 percent boost in the multi-core test.
This according to Venture Beat should help improve performance with face detection, speech recognition, Face ID and Siri. However, it’s still not a substantial boost in terms of performance, which means that Apple might be focusing more on the battery life with the new chipset.

While it’s not mentioned which 2018 iPhone the listing belongs to, 9-to-5Mac believes it to be the lower-end LCD iPhone. The website claims the listing to refer to a tweaked version of the A11 Bionic chip rather than the A12 chip. That said, it’s also completely possible that the listing could have been falsely created like many others in the past. We expect readers to take the news with a grain of salt.
