Apple announced its new 2018 lineup of iPhones at its Special Event on September 12. Most specifications of the new iPhone XR, iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max were shared during the presentation but the company did leave out some details like the RAM configuration and battery capacity of the phones. However, the new devices have been spotted on Geekbench’s benchmarking listing with the new A12 Bionic SoC, revealing the scores of the three smartphones along with the amount of RAM they might ship with. As per the listing, first spotted by LetsGoDigital, the cheapest of the three phones, the iPhone XR is listed as the iPhone 11,8 and it sports 3GB RAM. It scores 4,754 in single-core and 9,367 in multi-core tests.

There is also an iPhone 11,6, which is speculated to be the iPhone Xs Max, however, it might as well be the iPhone Xs. At the time of writing this article, we checked and found that the device has been benchmarked quite a few times, eight-times to be exact. The RAM is same at 4GB in every listing but the single and multi-core tests are pretty much consistent at around 4800 and 11300 respectively.

If the listing is to be believed, the iPhone Xs Max and the iPhone Xs will be shipped with an additional 1GB RAM as compared with the previous year’s iPhone X. All the listing show the devices running on the Apple’s latest iOS12 OS and a comparison table between the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone 11,6 suggests that the A12 Bionic might be shipped clocked at 2.49 GHz, up from the 2.39 GHz on the A11 Bionic.  

As mentioned earlier, Apple recently unveiled three new iPhones. The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max start at Rs 99,900, and Rs 1,09,900 respectively, while the ‘cheaper’ iPhone XR is priced starting at Rs 76,900. The iPhone XR comes in 64GB, 126GB and 256GB storage variants and will be available from October 26 in India. Meanwhile, the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max will be available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB storage models from September 28.
