LG to launch 2014 flagships with much rumored Odin chipset


While Samsung was the first to launch a mobile octa core chip back in CES earlier this year, the competition is getting tighter now with the likes of MediaTek prepping the launch of its own octa core chip. And we might have to add LG to that list too as the company has been long developing its own octa core chip named ‘Odin‘. This octa core chip follows the same architecture as Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa chips, in a sense that it won’t utilize all eight cores at once but will be based on ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture.

A new report states that this new chipset could be launched with the upcoming successors to the LG G2, the Optimus G Pro or even the Optimus G Pad tablet. The chipset was rumored to launch with the G2, but LG wisely decided to go with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 instead. There’s still some information left to gather, which can only be accessed when LG makes anything official. But given how LG makes its own displays, designing and manufacturing its own chipset will certainly be a huge plus in the long run.
