Blackphone 2
Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
ZTE Grand X IN

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 email will use the less powerful cores to maximise battery life.

4.Has out-of-order execution
