Picture of Apple’s A10 Chipset surfaces online for the first time

We’ve got our first view of the much touted Apple’s A10 chipset and it is courtesy a Weibo user @geekbar and its not just one but six chipsets on display with Apple’s logo crested on one side along with the name “A10”. The A10 chipset was purportedly spotted on Geekbench yesterday showing it sporting a dual-core 2.37GHz CPU. However, Primate Labs founder John Poole later labelled that specific benchmark test a fake.

Now we have our first glimpse of what the next generation chipset which may likely power the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, looks like in its entire component. The A10 chipset is a follow up to the Apple A9 processor which featured on the Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The difference is the A9 chips were built by Samsung and TSMC with Apple providing the design but the A10 chipset is likely being built by TSMC only.

Also, the Apple A9 processor packed just 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM but it is speculated that the RAM size would likely be bumped up to 3GB in the A10. With the trend of flagships featuring 4GB of RAM and more, it is very likely we’ll be seeing 3GB RAM on the A10.

The Apple iPhone 7 with 4.7-inch display and iPhone 7 Plus with a bigger 5.5-inch display are expected to pop anytime in September with some surprises up their sleeves. First is the rumored absence of the 3.5mm audio jack on the flagships and then the inclusion of a capacitive touch home button as well as bigger rear camera lens on the iPhone 7 and dual main cameras on the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. Apple is also said to have adopted new antenna lines on the flagships.
