According to previous news, snapdragon 898 will use 1+3+2+2 four cluster architecture, Kryo 780 large core based on Cortex-X2, Kryo 780 large core based on Cortex-710, Kryo 780 energy efficiency large core based on Cortex-510 (high frequency), the Kryo 780 energy efficient minicore is based on the Cortex-A510 (low frequency).
The Cortex-X2 /A710/A510 are all ARM’s latest public designs based on the 64-bit V9 instruction set, replacing the X1/A78/A55, respectively.
