This afternoon we’re taking a peek at a set of leaked benchmark scores for the next iPhone from Apple. The device in question is the iPhone 8, a device whose final release date-set name isn’t finalized – and whose very existence hasn’t yet been confirmed by Apple. As such, take the following with a grain of salt – but also know that the sources we’re using here have rarely been wrong – or even really inaccurate – in the recent past.
The first part of today’s rack-up of info comes from the likes of Ice Universe, a leakster extraordinaire whose information has been relatively on-point over the past few years (under one nomenclature or another).

That’s a real leakster for you.
Today’s action comes in the form of a few results from Geekbench, and they tap the inevitable Apple A11 chip. This is the processor that’ll be appearing in the iPhone 8, or so we’re lead to believe. If this is indeed the chip that’ll be in the iPhone 8 – or even the iPhone 7s or iPhone 7s Plus, the rest of the smartphone universe is in for a run for its money in performance numbers.
