The iPhone 12 leaked benchmarks have caused a tech storm with Apple’s next-generation smartphone expected to be the best ever released this year.
The leaked iPhone 12 specs show that it will be faster and more powerful than Samsung’s bigger Galaxy S20 Ultra according to the benchmarks revealed on Weibo by Chinese tech publication ITHome, as originally reported by GizChina.
The leaked results put the iPhone 12 on par with the latest iPad Pro, which beats most PC laptops in terms of raw processing power.
According to the alleged Geekbench 5 score card, the rumored A14 Bionic processor in the iPhone 12 will run at about 3.1GHz while the new CPU expected to be manufactured by TSMC will be using a 5-nanometer process, which is basically insane.
Having 1,658 on single-core and 4,612 in multi-core, makes the iPhone 12 are serious 2020 contender capable of knocking out other high performance phones like the S20 Ultra which is Samsung’s best reveal this year.
The iPhone 12 is expected to be the best smartphone ever released
At the moment, the fastest Android phone right now can only have a 805 on single-core and 3,076.7 on multi-core with the iPhone 11 Pro Max’s A13 bionic chip (which has 1334 on single-core and 3517 on multi-core) already under that point.
Simply put, the A14 beats the Snapdragon 865 which is currently under the S20 Ultra by a very wide margin.
On single-core, the difference is more than double, with a 853-point difference. On multi-core the margin is not so wide but it’s impressive still: 1,536 points. It just seems impossible that Qualcomm — or anyone else, really — will ever catch up to Apple’s CPU lead when it comes to mobile devices.
The leaked specs may not be the real representation of the actual device performance since there are still other factors to take into account like RAM, storage speed, and the software itself. Still, the raw power the new iPhone is getting is still hard to ignore.
Like the iPad Pro, the next-generation iPhone 12 will be able to handle extremely resource-intensive apps beating most of the current Android phones on market.
