iPhone 6 Said to Pack 1.4GHz A8 Chip, 1GB RAM

Apple will show the iPhone 6 to the world in just a couple of hours, but we’re still learning new details about the device. An alleged Geekbench benchmark report was recently published by the same person who published an iPhone 6 hands-on video recently.

The Geekbench report suggests Apple’s new iPhone 6 will pack a dual-core A8 processor (that much was expected) clocked at 1.4GHz. It also shows 1GB of RAM (technically 988MB).¬†While that might not sound like a huge upgrade, the performance shows a nice jump from last year’s iPhone 5s. Additionally, the Geekbench report refers to the iPhone 6 identifier as the “iPhone 7,2” and shows that it’s running iOS 8. We don’t know the legitimacy of these claims, but the hands-on video was pretty convincing at the very least.

We’ll know more about how the A8 chip performs later today.
