Snapdragon 8+ is produced with TSMC’s 4nm process. The frequency of the CPU and GPU is 10% higher than that of the previous generation’s flagship Snapdragon platform, and the power consumption is reduced by 30%.

So, we come down to the conclusion that this processor will use frequency change in all of these three devices. Input suggests that Huawei Nova 20 Pro uses a low-frequency version of Snapdragon 8+, while the main core is set for 3.0 GHz and the standard frequency is 3.2GHz.
