As the launch of the next-gen iPhones inches closer, the rumors and leaks surrounding the impending smartphones are gaining traction. Close on the heels of a recent purported Geekbench 3 leak comes another one that suggests that the iPhone 6s is poised to house a tri-core 1.5GHz CPU and 2GB of RAM.
A supposed prototype of the iPhone 6s has allegedly leaked and is fueling the assertions. The prototype was spotted on the Geekbench 3 database by MyDrivers, a Chinese website.
The snapshot of the database captured by MyDrivers points to the latest tri-core A9 processor clocked at 1.5GHz making its way to the iPhone 6s, as well as 2GB of RAM. The latest leak will also come as a relief to iPhone enthusiasts who may have been feeling a tad blue after rumors of the iPhone 6s housing 989MB of RAM emerged.
Tech Times reported recently that a leaked image attributed to Geekbench 3 pointed at less than 1GB of RAM for the iPhone 6s, which was way less than expectations, especially considering the latest Android handsets now boast 4GB of RAM.
The current leak also reveals that the iPhone 6s is poised to be quite a power-packed performer as the handset scored 1811 on the single-core test, which is much higher than competing Android flagships such as the LG G4, HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6.
The multi-core test score garnered by the iPhone 6s prototype was 4577, which not only bettered the 3000 notched up by the iPhone 6 Plus but also bested the HTC One M9, which garnered 3587. However, the iPhone 6s prototype was unable to vanquish the Samsung Galaxy S6 in the multi-core category as the latter racked up a score of 5077.
With the iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 6s allegedly slated to launch on Sept. 9, we will soon know what Apple has in store for us.
