Apple’s presentation of the new iPhone 12 has rekindled some already normal wars in mobile devices. Everyone wants to know how Apple’s proposal will behave in the face of competition.
The SoC A14 Bionic has specifications that place it mainly in a single place and this will have to be shown in real tests. The first benchmark values have now emerged, from Antutu and show that this will ultimately be below the Snapdragon 865 that equips many Android smartphones.
First performance tests of the iPhone 12
We are still a few days away from knowing how the new Apple SoC A14 Bionic behaves on the new iPhone. This promises a unique performance, judging by what Apple presented at the presentation event of its smartphones.
A first benchmark test, Antutu's responsibility, came to show its first values. These are also focused on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro and reveal very interesting values in their performance.
Antutu presented the performance results
The values presented are in line with what would be expected for this type of equipment. Thus, we have as a result of the tests the scores of 564,899 points for the iPhone 12 and 572,133 for the Pro.
Despite the same SoC, these benchmark values are, however, different. The reason will be in the remaining hardware present and especially in the RAM used. In the case of the iPhone 12, Apple bet on 4GB and in the case of the Pro, the brand already offers 6GB of RAM.
Values are below those presented by Snapdragon 865
The curious thing is that these values place these two smartphones below the SoC that is at the top of these tests. We are talking about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, which has results close to 600 thousand points. In the case of Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra there were 640,296 points and in OnePlus 8 Pro there were 598,891 points.
Of course, it is too early to confirm these values and the iPhone 12 will still have a non-optimized version of iOS. In addition, these tests focus on pure performance and not usability, which then turns out to be more important. Still, this is a big difference to the competition.
