iPhone 8 Allegedly Knocks Out The Galaxy S8 In New Geekbench Leak


The iPhone 8 is going to be a beast when it comes to the performance of its chipset. A leaked screenshot surfaced in China claiming depict the results obtained by the iPhone 8 after running Geekbench 4.0.



If you take a look at the screenshot above and you're a benchmark fanatic you already know what those numbers mean: the iPhone 8 has absolutely destroyed the competition including the S8.

First, its single-core score of 4,537 is 30% better than the iPhone 7. Coming to it's closest competitor, the closest any of those has come is the Galaxy S8 with 1,945 . So the iPhone 8's performance is extremely good in this metric.

The iPhone 8's multi-core score is 8,975, which is 58% better than its predecessor's. The Android device that's scored the best here so far is the Galaxy S8+ with 6,338. That means the next iPhone performs 41% better than its most important Android-based competitor.

Before you start feeling like



I think you should know something.

Benchmarks are not necessarily an indicative of real-world experience, at least not fully. So don't take this to mean that the iPhone 8 will automatically be that much better than the S8 duo in day-to-day tasks. However, these results prove that Apple's focus on creating the most powerful mobile chipsets hasn't taken a hit over the past year or so, while developing the iPhone 8.

Also note that it's not impossible to fake such a screenshot - it's very easy in fact. So by all means, don't take any of this for granted.

Anyway, if I choose to believe the leaked image, it'll mean that hat the iPhone 8 will come with a screen resolution of 2,800x1,242, which makes up for an incredibly odd 20.2:9 or 2.25:1 aspect ratio. And that's even taller than the 18.5:9 Samsung went with for its S8.

The prototype in question will run on iOS 11 as you'd expect, and it identifies itself as "iPhone 10,6" - for comparison, the iPhone 7 is "iPhone 9,1". The A11 chipset that powers the new model has a 2.74 GHz quad-core CPU, and 128KB of L1 cache. The iPhone 7's A10 Fusion only goes up to 2.34 GHz, so some of the performance differences between these are coming from the fact that the clock speed has been increased by 17%.
