ANDROID smartphones may have toppled Apple’s iPhone from its throne on Antutu Benchmark in May and June, but a leak shows that it could be getting back its crown soon.

This is thanks to the TSMC-manufactured A11 chip that will power the iPhone 8. Twitter user @UniverseIce, who has a pretty good track record when it comes to leaks, says that the chip, clocked at 3GHz, will use heterogeneous multi-processing technology. That means all cores can operate at the same time to perform demanding tasks.

He posted what he claims are two Geekbench 4 benchmark results for the A11. Using different clock frequencies, the two tests yielded 4600 and 4300 scores in the single-core analysis and 8500 and 7000 in the multi-core test

To put things into perspective, compare the ratings with those of the recent top five Android performers on Geekbench 4, which are dominated by Samsung Galaxy S8 phones.

If the leak is true, then the Apple iPhone 8 will easily crush the competition. Not that we’re surprised. iPhones have historically been a beast performance-wise. Apple’s custom CPU designs are considered the best in the smartphone industry. Benchmarks have shown that. Speed tests have established that.

But to be sure, let’s just wait for the official unveiling of the iPhone 8, shall we? Hopefully, the expected launch in September won’t be delayed, as persistent rumors suggest.
