dramatically changes its iPhone line-up, both in terms of display size and cheaper pricing. But new information has revealed one nasty surprise where Apple’s new phones may well fall short: performance…

Renders of budget iPhone X beside iPhone X Plus based on leaks

The first Geekbench results for Apple’s new iPhones have been spotted by eagled-eyed French site iGeneration, and they reveal a year of underwhelming performance stagnation lies ahead.

Breaking down the results for the listed ‘iPhone 11,2’ (expected to be the iPhone X Plus as the iPhone 8 Plus was identified as the ‘iPhone 10,2’), we discover Apple’s upcoming phone has just 10% greater single-core performance and 5% greater multi-core performance than last years models.

This would amount to the smallest generational chipset upgrade in iPhone or Android history.

The exact numbers come out as follows:

  • iPhone X (2017) – single core: 4206, multi-core: 10,123
  • iPhone X Plus (2018) – single core: 4673, multi-core: 10,912
