Several rumors suggest that LG is working on its own chip codenamed LG Odin, which is expected to be a part of LG upcoming flagship device know as LG G3. It seems LG is following the footsteps of Samsung, who’s manufacturing its own Exynos chips, which becomes a part of the flagship devices launched by the Korean OEM, including Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S4, etc.
Now, the purported chipset is spotted on AnTuTu, a popular benchmarking service. The team behind AnTuTu found some traces of LG Odin in their database, and the results are not too impressive, at least for now.
LG Odin is said to be an octa-core processor with a lock speed of 2.2GHz with a big.LITTLE architecture with four 2.2GHz Cortex A15 cores and four Cortex A7 1.7GHz cores, which are not functioning simultaneously.
The details of the processor are scarce, but if the benchmarks are to be believed, the processor is clocked at 1GHz and the results are even shocking. If the number value is correct, we might get disappointed with the upcoming LG G3. The other surprising thing is the PowerVR Rogue GPU, which comes with the latest iPhone 5S and can provide solid graphics performance. But, take these as rumors as there’s a chance that the processor speed is throttled for testing purposes or to conserve battery life.
Coming over to the device that was being tested on AnTuTu, or should we call it the alleged LG G3 (which I’m sure its not), it rocks a 1080p display, 2GB RAM, 4GB internal storage, 13Mp rear camera with 1.3MP front-facing camera and Android 4.2.2 running as the OS. Let me remind you not put your entire faith in this as it could be a prototype device, and the actual device that is expected to hit retail next year could be a lot different.
