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 2,800×1,242, 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%.
Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way
Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.
The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.
From the teaser, we supposedly got a few hints (not sure if this is the right word) of what to expect before it is finally revealed. And it has a couple of impressive specs I’d say.
Here are the following specifications from the teaser;
• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display
• Android 9 – the latest android version
• In-display Fingerprint sensor
• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM
• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight
• 3500mAh battery
I think Tecno needs to be reminded of what a teaser mean, because at this point, you’ll have to wonder how this is a teaser. Permit me to called it a spoiler instead.
What else do they have in store? They literally listed every spec we care about in a smartphone today. Well, only time will tell.
iPhone 11 – Is there anything left to announce?
It is still months before Apple unveil their next iPhone, but that has not done enough to avert the ton of leaks online.
The release for the iPhone 11 is set for September this year. Apart from the aesthetics and designs, not much is known about its specifications.
Although there have also been rumors of the iPhone 11 spec sheet, history has severally proven those type of speculations to be unreliable.
Here are the leaked photos. What do you think?
