You’re going to get either an Intel XMM 7360 modem or a Qualcomm Snapdragon X12 modem inside this year’s new iPhone, both of which are faster than the Qualcomm MDM9635M (AKA Qualcomm Gobi 9x35) modem in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, according to an article over at MacRumors.

Intel's XMM 7360 modem offers theoretical download speeds of up to 450 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 100 Mbps.

Qualcomm's X12 modem offers theoretical download speeds of up to 600 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 150 Mbps.

As a reminder, the Qualcomm MDM9635M chip used by the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus offers theoretical download speeds of up to 300 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 50 Mbps. So yes, it’s a very decent speed increase, especially if you end up with the Qualcomm X12 modem inside your iPhone 7. As stated, these are theoretical maximum speeds, and actual speeds will almost certainly be less.
