Apple A10 Powered iPhone 7 Plus Appears On The Geekbench Database
We know that the upcoming Apple iPhone 7 Plus will be powered by the new custom Apple A10 processor and it seems to have made its way to the Geekbench database. The results which have been shown on the my drivers site seem to be impressive.
Results show that the Apple A10 chip has a single core score of 3379 points and a multiple core score of 5495 points. Although the single core results are great the same cannot be said about the multiple core score. This could be because the Apple A10 is a dual core chip. But then again the custom chips from Apple have proven to be pretty great so far and this could be the same case for the Apple A10 as well.
Some rumors also suggest that the iPhone 7 Plus will come with 3 GB RAM but if this benchmark means something then this will not be the case. You need to keep in mind that Android and iOS devices have different requirements and Apple products do not need high specs in order to work well. So you can expect great multitasking like in the previous iPhone maybe even better with the new chip on board.
Here is what we have heard about the iPhone 7 Plus so far:
- Up to 256GB of internal storage,
- Dual camera setup
- Force Touch home button
- Water resistance
- Faster connectivity
- No 3.5mm audio jack
- New Lightning EarPods
The lack of a headphone jack could be a huge concern for buyers as people will not be able to have headphones on and charge their device at the same time and will have to go with Bluetooth headphones instead. The launch of the new device is in a few hours so we will find out soon enough which rumors are true.
