6.Uses big.LITTLE technology
BlackBerry Q5
Samsung Galaxy S10 5G
Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)

Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores in order to maximise performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking e-mail will use the less powerful cores to maximise battery life.
