First mention of the iPhone 6se appeared on a blog, then the information started spreading online, but not too many have taken this rumor seriously until the phone has appeared on Geekbench. This means that the iPhone 6s is actually the iPhone 7, and the phablet will carry the 6se Plus moniker, as, according to the latest reports, the new phones will follow a similar design language and will come with a few upgrades.
Someone from China has disclosed the Geekbench numbers and this source claimed that the iPhone 6se was put to the test and in the multi-core testing, it scored 5210, which was much higher than the 4421 score obtained by the iPhone 6s. Also, in single-core tests, the iPhone 6se prototype scored 3042, which was also impressive, because the current flagship scored only 2539.
The source said that the device ran on iOS 10 and that it didn’t have the familiar round capacitive home button. He also mentioned that the phablet had dual rear-facing cameras, confirming the rumors that circulated in the past months.
Apple hasn’t given any statement on this information, so we should take all rumors with a bit of salt, as they might prove to be inventions. But if the source didn’t lie and the prototype obtained the aforementioned scores, then we should expect an impressive performance of the A10 chip.
The iPhone 7 / iPhone 6se is expected to be unveiled on September 7 and tipsters claim that the phone will go on sale a week later. The next gen flagship will get a physical redesign and rumors suggest that Apple has removed the antenna bars and the headphone jack, which means that users will connect headphones via the Lightning port. There’s a possibility that the screen resolution will be increased and the battery life will be higher. In addition, the 16GB variant will be phased out and the three new options of internal memories will be 32GB, 128GB and 256GB.
