The upcoming iPhone 6 is said to come with an Apple A8 processor. The processor is rumored to come with 64-bit architecture, and rumors suggest component manufacturers have started shipping the chips to Apple.
According to a new rumor originating from Chinese shores, the upcoming Apple A8 processor will be clocked at 2.0GHz. It’s a decent jump from 1.3GHz A7 processor, but it will still be dual-core.
I know it may come as a disappointing news for many people that Apple is still sticking to the dual-core processor, but let’s not forget the Apple iPhone 5S still performed way better than many Android flagship devices, which were equipped with octa-core and quad-core processors.
The report suggests the chip will be manufactured with 20-nm process instead of the 28-nm in the Apple A7 processor. Rumors suggest that Apple has given the task of manufacturing those chips to Samsung as well as TSMC — the latter even shipped the processors according to one report.
It remains to be seen what Apple has planned for its fans with the iPhone 6. It’s turning out to be a highly anticipated device, since the Cupertino giant is also expected to give a significant bump to the screen size, launching two handsets with a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display.
That’s all for now, we’ll update you if we get any more information about the upcoming iPhone 6.
