Leaked iPhone X Plus Benchmarks Leave All Androids In The Dust

The battle for supremacy between iOS and Android just took another interesting turn. Geekbench has released benchmark results for a mystery phone thought to be the iPhone X Plus powered by Apple's A12 chipset. If the results are legit, it seems that the next iPhone's processing power will trounce all incoming Androids by a considerable margin. This thing is insane.

Geekbench is remaining rather coy on the identity of its latest benchmark recipient. The results are listed under "iPhone 11,2" which is running on iOS 12. As Apple hasn't even acknowledged the existence of its new iPhones, we can understand Geekbench's reluctance to go into specifics.

Nevertheless, it's easy to deduce that the phone behind the test curtain is none other than the 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus. Either that, or its regular sized iPhone X sibling, which is expected to replace the 2017 model later in the year. Here's how the phone scored in Geekbench's benchmarks:

To reiterate, that's a single-core score of 4673 and a multi-core score of 10,912 which is very impressive indeed. (In the same tests, the original iPhone X scored 4,055 and 10,375, while Samsung's Galaxy S9 only managed 3263 and 8900.)

This is presumably thanks to Apple's A12 processor which will purportedly be the company's first stab at a 7-nanometer chipset. In real-world terms, this should translate to a faster and more power-efficient phone with a longer battery life.

What We Know About Apple's 2018 iPhone Range

We're getting to that time of the year when Apple is preparing to bring their new flagship smartphone to the market. Last year, Apple broke with tradition, delivering two new models, the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. This year will see three new models if the rumours are right. But they're not the only changes Apple will be bringing.

    How does a benchmark equal more power efficiency? Is that part of the score now?

      That was in reference to the A12 chipset. Should have made that clearer, sorry!

    All that extra power to browse Facebook and take selfies with

    Who cares when it's still a crippled device that still has no expandable storage, no customization, the same OS that it had 10 years ago, no headphone jack, locked down NFC chip that only apple are allowed up use and still needs iTunes to change a ringtone. This thing can be 1000000 times faster than an android device but it will never be able to do what an android device does because apple have locked it in its apple prison cell. No thanks. I prefer freedom. Isn't that what our ancestors fought wars for?

      I think our ancestors laid down their lives for something a little more important then your dislike of one phone over another.

      you're locked into a mortgage no doubt also, job to pay it off, and taxes... sad that isn't it? But you've got your trusty android device which frees you.. or at least makes you feel free

      The backup service provide by Apple dwarfs any product on the market, the benefits you get from the Androids pales in the shadow. Apple any day!

      My Pixel 2 doesn't have expandable storage, nor does it have a headphone jack, nor do I use it for anything other than I used my old iPhone for. I'd wager that most users wouldn't really find Android any different.

      Also, same OS for 10 years? Have you ever used iOS? At least if you have a relatively recent Apple device you can get the latest release on time...

    Most people don't buy phones for their speed.

    So we can expect the X+ to now cost $2-$3K?
