Recent rumours have suggested LG is looking to build its own mobile processors. It is reportedly developing both quad-core and an octa-core versions of a processor codenamed Odin. The octa-core version now appear to have surfaced on the AnTuTu benchmarking website.
Identified as the LG Odin, the results support past reports that the octa-core model would use ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture to switch between that four Cortex-A15 and four Cortex-A7 cores depending on the task. The tests show it paired to a Power VR Series 6 GPU, the latest from Imagination Technologies.
The LG Odin results reveal a score very similar to that of the Samsung Exynos 5410 and MediaTek MT6592, the latter a true octa-core SOC that uses eight ARM Cortex-A7 cores. But the results could be deceiving as the cores were only clocked to a maximum of 1GHz. Most processors are clocked higher than that today so we can expect scores to improve as LG ramps up core speed.
The Odin SoC was tested on an LG prototype sporting Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, 2GB of RAM, 4GB of onboard storage, a Full HD (1080×1920) display, a 13MP rear camera and a 1.3 front camera.
With Samsung expected to unveil its new 64-bit Exynos 6 and Exynos S processors at CES 2014, perhaps LG will respond with its own announcement at the event. It could then follow that up with an LG G3 press event at MWC 2014.
