Tokyo: LG after the success of LG G2 now planning to include another smartphone to the G series, as new report claims that Octa core Odin processor will land in LG G3.
Korean site Digital Times reports that LG is improving the quad- and octa-core versions of its Odin processor, raising speeds for its Cortex A15 cores from 1.7GHz to a meaty 2.2GHz on the main big.LITTE configuration.
The second quad-core unit bolted into the octa-core chip is also said to be getting a speed bump, with the Cortex A7 processor now clocked at 1.7GHz – up from 1.2GHz.
We’ve already seen Samsung stick its own octa-core processor into one variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4, and we expect several manufacturers to follow suit with their next generation flagship smartphones.
Chinese chip maker MediaTek claims it has the first “ture octa-core” processor, and Qualcomm’s recently announced Snapdragon 805 offering means the mobile power competition is really hotting up.
LG’s new eight core chip is tipped to make its way into the successor of the LG G2 phone (the LG G3, perhaps) as well as the firm’s next generation tablet which is set to replace the G Pad 8.3.
Meanwhile the quad-core variant is destined for larger LG electronics such as its Smart TVs.
