One of the documents in the certification revealed a specification that had previously been spotted on benchmarking platforms, which is the SM8150 baseband processor (the Snapdragon 855 chipset). The SoC is one of the most powerful chipsets in the market as of now, and it comprises of an octa-core Kryo 485 CPU and the Adreno 640 GPU. The details of the chipset were derived from the FCC label which is placed at the back of the smartphone.
