Apple is expected to unveil its iPhone 7 and 7 Plus on September 7 (maybe 7 will be a lucky number for the next gen iPhones) and they will be powered by the new A10 processor, with which the phablet was tested on Geekbench and managed to obtain some impressive scores.
The iPhone 7 Plus generated more interest because it will come with a dual-camera setup (two 12MP cameras on its back), but users will surely want to see an improvement in matter of performance. The new A10 will satisfy their needs and the Geekbench results have confirmed that the processor is extremely powerful, as in the single-core test, it obtained a score of 3379, while the iPhone 6S Plus has scored only 2526 in the same test. On the other hand, the Exynos 8890 processor that powers the Galaxy Note 7 has obtained a much lower score of 2067.66, but it still performs better than the Snapdragon 820 version, which scored 1896 in the single core test.
As for the multi-score test, the iPhone 7 Plus obtained a score of 5495, jumping from a score of 4404, as the predecessor has managed to score. However, the iPhone phablet was outperformed by the Exynos 8890 version of the Galaxy Note 7, which scored 6100, while the Snapdragon 820 version had a disappointing score of 5511 on Geekbench.
The iPhone 7 Plus is rumored to come with a dual-core processor that will run at 2.4 GHz and will be backed by 3GB of RAM. The smaller iPhone 7 will support 2GB of RAM and will have a standard 12MP rear camera, but the screen sizes and resolutions of both models will be identical to their predecessors.
Other changes that will be made to the iPhone 7/7 Plus: the headphone jack and radio lines will be removed and there will be a new Touch ID button.
