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. Also Read - Flipkart Big Dussehra Sale 2022 goes live: Check deals on iPhone 13, Pixel 6a, Nothing Phone (1) and more

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.
