Snapdragon Rival Coming to LG

Phone Arena claims that LG is to back away from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chip in favour of its own device. The chip will be a quad-core ARM unit, with four Cortex-A72 cores and four Cortex-A5. TSMC is expected to manufacture the chip, which will be released towards the end of 2015.


LG has previously committed to using the Snapdragon 810 in its G Flex 2 (Samsung Drops Qualcomm) – and, it is suspected, the upcoming G4. Meanwhile, Samsung is widely expected to use its own chip in the Galaxy S6, due to overheating issues with the Qualcomm device.
