The Snapdragon 675 processor features 8 Kryo 460 called cores (64-Bit capable) that are divided in two clusters. A fast cluster of two cores with up to 2 GHz and  based on the ARM Cortex-A76 design. And a power saving efficiency cluster with up to 1.6 GHz and based on much smaller ARM Cortex-A55 cores.
