Intel iPhone X faster than Qualcomm’s

As has been reported with the previous iPhones, splitting the modem production results in some iPhones being faster than others. Reportedly, the same is the case with some iPhone X units as well.

This is in contrast to what Cellular Insights found after it tested Qualcomm and Intel iPhone 7 Plus models last year.

On AT&T and T-Mobile networks, which support both Intel and Qualcomm models, the Intel modem was faster compared to Qualcomm, claims SpeedSmart. The Intel iPhone X on AT&T averaged around 30.13 Mbps, whereas the iPhone X with Qualcomm inside averaged 27.46 Mbps. On T-Mobile, the Intel iPhone X gave an average speed of 33.34 Mbps, while the Qualcomm one averaged 26.54 Mbps.
