Alleged iPhone 6 Geekbench Results Reveal 1.4 GHz Dual-Core A8 Chip, 1 GB of RAM

Over the weekend, Weibo user zzray showed off an apparently working 4.7-inch iPhone 6, offering a first look at the device. Now, the user has also posted more information about the device (Google Translate, via GforGames), including results from a Geekbench 3 test that reveal a 1.4 GHz ARM processor and 1 GB of RAM for the device.

The results show that the iPhone 6 scored a 1633 on the single-core test and a 2920 on the multi-core test, which is greater than the 1305 single-core and 2347 dual-core Geekbench 3 scores for the 1.3 GHz A7 chip on the iPhone 5s. This also contrasts a previous report, which claimed that the A8 chip would top 2 GHz while remaining dual-core.

The data also displays 1GB of RAM, which is the same amount of RAM included on the iPhone 5s. A wiring schematic said to be from the iPhone 6 that surfaced last month also indicated that the device would have 1 GB of RAM.

The user has also posted a photo from the iPhone 6 and compared it to the same shot taken with iPhone 5s and LG G3. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is said to come with an improved camera module which is said to offer faster focusing speeds and power efficiency. Other leaks have pointed to the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 featuring an optical image stabilization system.

Apple is expected to reveal both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 alongside the iWatch at a media event scheduled for today at 10 AM. MacRumors will have live coverage of the event as it unfolds.

Until I start having problems with RAM on my phone, I'm not going to worry about RAM on my phone.

I love Apple and everything they do...but if they seriously think I'll buy a phone at the end of 2014 (to use through 2016) with 1GB of RAM, they're out of their minds.

I really hope that 1GB will be enough. My ipad Air is struggling with Safari and some other apps on a daily basis.

But my iphone 5 works just fine with 1 GB.

That's not true ... 1 GB RAM. There is no reason not to build in 2 GB. Ahh there is one, next year you can advertise it as a great thing ... this is so obvious.

I will not buy a new iPhone with only 1 GB RAM ...

iOS (and WP) is way more efficient. Android (http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1684247) needs the extra; it's not something to brag about.
