We’ve seen the supposed LG G4 pop up more than once before, and it’s breaking cover yet again thanks to a new GFXBench score. Most of the device’s specs are revealed in the leak, including camera, screen size and memory. But it’s the phone’s processor that could turn the most heads.
You can pretty much guess the specs before even getting a glimpse of LG’s new device: 5.5-inch Quad HD display, 3GB of RAM, 15-megapixel camera, and Android 5.1. But it’s the inclusion of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor that is most surprising. The chip isn’t exactly Qualcomm’s most cutting-edge on the market, but with alleged heating issues plaguing the Snapdragon 810, it appears LG decided to go with an alternative as the safer option.
LG has already opted for the Snapdragon 810 for its G Flex 2, so it’s a bit of a surprise to see the company go with something else. The Snapdragon 808 LG may use a hexa core chip clocked at 1.8GHz. Really, it should be perfectly fine as far as performance is concerned, even if it’s not Qualcomm’s latest and greatest technology. The 808 runs on 64bit architecture and features Cat 6 LTE, which is perfectly acceptable as far as most end users are concerned.
It’s unclear when the LG G4 will launch, but seeing as it’s popping up more frequently as of late, we probably don’t have to wait much longer to learn the official details.
