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

In comparison, the Galaxy S23 Plus scored 2005 and 5274 in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively
