Google Nexus 5 May Get 8-Core Odin Processor As Optimus G2 Details Surface

By  | 

LG have been very busy as they have released a lot of hardware over the past few weeks. There have now been reports that LG may reveal the LG Optimus G2 with the 8 core Odin processor.

Before the announcement of the LG Optimus G Pro there was rumours going around about the Optimus G2 and now reports have come out that claim that LG have finished development work on their 8 core processor and that this will be used in the Optimus G2 later on this year.

The processor is said to have the codename of Odin and LG have been said to be putting this chip into mass production later on in the year. The chip is thought to use the ARM big.LITTLE tech that Samsung have used in the Exynos 5 Octa processor, which is manufactured using the 28nm High K Metal Gate fabrication tech.

It supports full HD of 1920 x 1080p, however it is thought that it will not be equipped with a baseband modem and that it would work with four Cortex A15 core, which would deal with the heavy tasks, with the other four Cortex A7 core being used when other mundane needs are asked of the processor.

At the moment there is nothing much known about the LG Optimus G2, LG have launched the Optimus G Pro along with some lower spec phones. They have promised a number of handsets will be coming out this year and for now they do seem to be sticking to this.

On a side note, there are rumors that the Google Nexus 5 may end up being made by LG. If this is true then it may share similar architecture with the Optimus G2 just like how the LG Nexus 4 did with the Optimus G. If rumors prove true, the Google Nexus 5 will be unveiled in May at Google I/O.

Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, PC, iPhone and Android games keep Berke busy at work all day. Honestly though we’re not sure why we’re paying him as it should be the other way around.
