Furthermore, it's also using Qualcomm's 5th gen Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine and this includes the Qualcomm Hexagon 698 Processor with Hexagon Tensor Accelerator. The Kryo 585 CPU core is improved which can clock up to 3.2GHz which looks great for mobile gaming, and even more so with Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite Gaming.
