The first one, 8895M will have a quad-core CPU cluster clocked at 2.5GHz whereas the second one 8895V will have a cluster clocked at 200Mhz lower than the first one at 2.3GHz. Also, the 8895M will also get two extra cores with the same G71 GPU than 8895V.
As we reported earlier, the latest Exynos chipset will be made using Samsung’s 10nm FinFET technology which is exactly same as of Snapdragon 835 since Samsung is manufacturing the both. The 8895 chipset will be an octa-core with four M2 cores designed by Samsung whereas the other four ARM Cortex-A53 cores. The M2 cores will be clocked at 2.5GHz and 2.3GHz in 8895M and 8895V chipsets respectively.
The leak also claims that the Qualcomm will stick to its custom-designed Kyro cores for its Snapdragon 835, but this time the higher cluster will go as up as 3GHz whereas the other cores will be clocked at 2.4GHz. Earlier, the Geekbench listing of Snapdragon 835 was leaked revealing the single-core and multi-core scores of the chipset. Qualcomm has also confirmed to announce the Snapdragon 835 at CES 2017.
