The Cortex-A15 cores can be clocked from 1.7Giga Hertz (GHz) up to 2.0GHz, while the energy-efficient Cortex-A7 ones start at 1.3Giga Hertz (GHz) and can be boosted up to 1.6GHz.

The Kirin 920 relies on the powerful Mali-T628MP4 quad-core graphics. We've seen the same GPU, but with six cores (MP6), to perform in the octa-core models of the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S5.
