Even as we are just days away from Apple’s September 7 event where the company is expected to launch its newest iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones, the leaks and rumors just don’t seem to stop. And this time, the unannounced iPhone 7 Plus has hit Geekbench smartphone bench-marking website. The benchmark listing has revealed some key specifications of the smartphone.
As per the listing, iPhone 7 Plus will run iOS 10.1 out-of-the-box and will be powered by a dual-core processor . It is rumoured that the new models will feature Apple’s newest A10 processor, along with 2GB of RAM.
The benchmarking website lists the upcoming smartphone’s single-core and multi-core performance scores. The iPhone 7 Plus scores 3379 in single-core performance,a significant increase over the iPhone 6s Plus’ 2526. It is also more than the score achieved by the Exynos-powered variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 – 2067.
The ‘highlight’ of the upcoming iPhone 7 models is likely to be the omission of the 3.5mm audio jack. It’s expected to be replaced by the Lightning port, and with this dropping of audio jack the company might also introduce Bluetooth-enabled EarPods. Which will look cool with Teenagers and yes with adults as well.
New Beats by Dre products are also rumored to launch at the Apple keynote event. It is still unclear what kinds of Beats products will be unveiled, but the brand is known for a variety of headphones and portable Bluetooth speakers. Apple acquired Beats for $3 billion in 2014.
Another highlight is expected to be the iPhone 7 Plus’ dual rear camera setup. The dual cameras are expected to bring more post-clicking features and greater flexibility in adjusting the depth of field of images after they have been clicked.
