RumorTT: iPhone 5 appears to be clocked at 1.1GHz in the UK

Rumor: iPhone 5 is reported to be clocked at 1.1GHz for the UK model

Even more discrepancies over the frequency of the new A6 processor have appeared. Originally, GeekBench showed the new iPhone 5 processor clocked at 1GHz. The makers of GeekBench updated their algorithm to better detect the frequency of the new chip and all of a sudden the US models all received a speed boost to 1.3GHz.




However, when TechRadar installed the updated version of GeekBench on their UK iPhone 5, they found a different speed reported: 1.1GHz. The US model iPhone is reported as iPhone5,1 whereas the UK model used by TechRadar showed up as iPhone5,2. So, why the discrepancy? It's not exactly clear what is causing the change, but the obvious reason would be that Apple chose a different speed for the UK model.


People commenting on the TechRadar story have seen both 1.1GHz and 1.3GHz reported on their UK model phone. If only Apple would come out and tell us the tech specs that we all want to know, we'd be in a much better position of knowledge. Until then, we'll keep you updated regarding any iPhone 5 news.
