New benchmarks suggest iPhone 6S could have 2GB of RAM

Teaser
A supposed iPhone 6S prototype has been benchmarked with great results.

Results have appeared on Geekbench 3 for an iPhone 6S prototype, and the score was quite high. The results also suggest that the new iPhone, assuming the benchmark is accurate, may be released with 2 GB of RAM rather than 1 GB as has been expected. In the single-core test, the iPhone 6S received a score of 1,811, and this is far higher than many other competing handsets that run Android. The upgrade to iOS 9 may also help the performance of the new iPhone upon release as it is more efficient than previous operating systems from the company.

The multi-core test of the supposed prototype was also quite astonishing, scoring a fantastic 4,577 points. This is very impressive considering the iPhone 6 Plus received a score of 3,000 in the very same test. This score is also much better than many other Android phones. Overall, if these results are anything close to the truth, Apple really seems to be stepping up the performance of its latest smartphone.

At this point, there is no way at all to verify if there is any truth to the results of the tests. The high scores should be taken with a grain of salt until Apple decides to finally unveil the new iPhone and release all the information about its internals. Some believe the iPhone event could be as early as September 9th, so the wait may nearly be over.
