IPhone XR 2019 will come with 4 GB memory

The famous Geekbench test site revealed the appearance of a device named iPhone12,1, which is believed to be the next version of the iPhone XR. The device comes with a memory of 4 GB (currently the XR has a memory of 3 GB). It is also interesting to consider the processor, as it did not show a significant improvement in performance, as the single core got 5415 individual points, i.e. an improvement of approximately 13%, and the multiple cores 11294 points, meaning a slight improvement of 1.7%, and the processor frequency came to 2.66GHz, i.e. a slight increase over the A12, which comes at a frequency of 2.49GHz. So was Apple testing with another processor or would the A13 be disappointing?

Who supported and restored the iPhone SE to the spotlight, reports said that Apple expects a 10% drop in sales of the iPhone that is expected to be released after days, so here the company needs a cheap phone to return its sales to it again, especially as it will come in the size of the iPhone 8 with a processor, perhaps the A12 (at that time it will not be the leader Rather, A13). This makes it an ideal choice with its price, which will not exceed $ 500.
