It is common knowledge by now that LG is working on its own mobile chipset for its future smartphones. But we haven’t had official confirmation from the company apart from the myriad of leaks that we have seen over the course of the weeks. Today, the company has finally put an end to all the rumors by confirming that it is indeed working on its own octa-core chipset similar to the one used by Samsung.
Based on ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture, this chipset will feature four high power 2.2 GHz Cortex-A15 cores and four power efficient 1.7 GHz Cortex-A7 cores. There’s still no word from the company on whether this chip will be used with the upcoming LG G3 or for a later device.
Rumors have pegged the upcoming LG flagship to launch with a Snapdragon 801 chipset, so we might not get to see this new octa core chip in action anytime soon. It has been said that LG could use its octa core chips for non-LTE markets much like Samsung and use the Qualcomm chips for markets like the U.S. where LTE is an absolute necessity.
