After speculations on the core layout of the upcoming Qualcomm flagship chipset from 1+5+2 to 1+3+2+2, the Geekbench listing confirms the latter.

The cores were listed with these specific clock speeds:

  • 1 x Prime Core at 3.3 GHz
  • 3 x Large cores (believed to be Cortex-A720) at 3.15 GHz
  • 3 x Large cores (believed to be Cortex-A720) at 2.96 GHz
  • 2 x Small Cores (believed to be Cortex-A520) at 2.27 GHz
