The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will go on sale on Friday, both handsets are powered by the new Apple A10 processor and whilst Apple hasn’t revealed how much RAM they come with, they are expected to feature 3GB of RAM.
Now some benchmarks for the iPhone 7 have appeared on AnTuTu and the handset has apparently had some impressive results.
The iPhone 7 score 178,000 points on AnTuTu, you can see a list of the top 10 smartphones on AnTuTu last month below, the top score came from the One Plus3 with a score of 140,288.
Apple’s A10 processor is a quad core processor, the previous A9 processor was a dual core processor, so we can expect significant performance gains as shown in the benchmarks. The iPhone 6S scored 133,781 in the benchmarks which is considerably less than the 178,000 points of the new iPhone 7.
The new Apple A10 is said to be 40% faster than the A9 processor that it replaces, two of the cores are designed fir performance and the other two are designed for efficiency.
Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus go on sale this Friday and we suspect that Apple’s new smartphones may end up being their most popular to date, although we wont know this for a while as this will be the first year that Apple does not publish first weekend sales.
