    LG Preps Another Flagship for Later in 2013; Optimus G2 to Feature 8-Core 'Odin' Chip


    It looks like LG is not content to wow us with just the Optimus G Pro in the beginning half of this year. Supposedly, they are already prepping the Optimus G2 to launch at the end fo the year and it will have a seriously competitive big.LITTLE chipset of its own that will include 8-cores. Here's a quote with the details,

    According to South Korean publication DDaily, the eight-core processor dubbed Odin will use a 28nm HKMG process, with LG hiring TSMC to produce it. The processor should be ready for market later this year, and should be found inside the Optimus G2, which we can only assume its coming in late 2013, about a year after the Optimus G.

    The Odin will feature four Cortex A15 cores for heavy-duty requirements, while four Cortex A7 cores will deal with more mundane activities. Just like the Exynos 5 Octa, LGs eight-core processor aims to offer high performance when needed, but also improved battery life, thanks to the big.LITTLE architecture.

    The SoC will apparently offer eight-core graphics capabilities as well with support for Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080) and higher, but it will lack a baseband modem.
    So, apparently Samsung will need to start looking over their shoulder at LG later on in the year. Do you guys think LG could actually start catching up with Samsung?

    It never did. Why would this year be different? HTC and Sony are the ones catching up.
