Surprise Surprise – LG G4’s Detailed Benchmark Posting Shows No Snapdragon 810
By the looks of things, its going to be pretty soon that we'll be getting to see LG's flagship. The LG G4 has been pegged for a launch date by the end of next month, and is expected to be a device that manages to impress its users in more than one area. Apart from the performance on the G4, the company's also looking to launch an all new Touch UX 4.0 version before the device's launch, to further boost its interface and usability. But we might be in surprise next month it seems, if today's LG G4 benchmarks are to be believed.
LG G4 Gets Posted On GeekBench - Sports Snapdragon 808 Instead Of 810
Today's LG G4 leak stands nicely in line with what we've been telling you about the device so far. According to GeekBench, the LG G4 will be coming with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 and screen size of 5.5 inches. The device has also been listed Android 5.1, which is something that has already been mentioned before for the LG G4. This is coupled with 3 GB of RAM and interesting internal storage specifications of 23 GB, but given that this is in all likelihood a testing variant, this can expected to change. A rear camera of 15 MP with 4K recording on board, and a front camera of 7 MP have also made it on board the LG G4.
What surprises us the most in today's posting is the processor on LG's device, codenamed LG G4 (F500x) on GeekBench. The device has been listed with a hexa-core, (Four Cortex A53 + Two A57 Cores) CPU, which points at the Snapdragon 808, rather than the 810, which is what the LG G4 has been rumored to be coming with for quite a time now. This is coupled with the Adreno 418 GPU, which as you might know, isn't on the same par with Qualcomm's Adreno 430, known far and wide for its graphics capabilities. Looks like the overheating problems on the Snapdragon 810 have also managed to dissuade another long time Qualcomm partner from its top-tier platform this time around. Or is LG looking for something different entirely for its flagship device this year? Only time will tell. Stay tuned, and let us know what you think in the comments section.
