The company officially unveiled the iPhone 12 Series lineup earlier this week, and the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are already being prepared for the pre-order phase before it reaches the market in the week. Today we spotted the first performance tests of both devices on the AnTuTu platform, which gives us a peek into the performance of the two phones.
Both iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro work with the Apple A14 Bionic processor, which is the first processor in the world to be manufactured using 5 nm technology, but the initial numbers reveal somewhat disappointing results when compared to the Snapdragon 865 processor used by most of the leading Android phones.
The Apple A14 Bionic processor scored about 570,000 points in a performance test that takes into account the graphics processor, central processor, memory and user interface, which is not impressive. To put things into perspective, the best Android phone in the market today scored 660,000 points in the same test with a large gap in the GPU score, which is down 40 percent on iPhones.
In the other three aspects, Apple offers 10 percent less performance, and 6 percent less performance at the memory level, at least in the 4GB / 256GB version of the iPhone 12, and in the 6GB / 128GB version of the iPhone 12 Pro. It is also possible that this will be the first confirmation after launch that the iPhone 12 Pro models will get 6GB of RAM, while the iPhone 12 models will only get 4GB of RAM.
Even if we ignore the cross-platform comparisons, which may not always be somewhat accurate, the Apple A14 Bionic processor is barely faster than the Apple A13 Bionic processor. The iPhone 11 Pro Max scored 536883 points in the performance tests on the AnTuTu platform, giving the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro a slight progress by 5 to 6 percent.
