Possible A12 Geekbench Score Suggests An iPhone With 4GB RAM And A 10% Speed Boost


According to a report by Consomac, at least one 2018 iPhone model will allegedly see a 10% speed improvements over the iPhone X. Listed with a “iPhone 11,2” device code, this could be an “iPhone 9” or possibly an “iPhone 11”, the report states. The Geekbench results shows that the phone was tested last week, with an ARM processor that has similar characteristics to the A11 Bionic chip found in the 2017 iPhones. One interesting aspect is that the RAM has been increased from 2815MB (3GB) to 3748MB (4GB), and the L1 Instruction Cache and Data Cache jumped from 32KB to 128KB. The “iPhone 11,2” device identifier could potentially be the lower-end LCD iPhone this year, as well. This model could theoretically use a modified A11 Bionic chip, rather than an A12 chip. Thoughts ?
