LG G6 Goes for a Benchmarking Run – 4GB RAM and Old SoC Found as Part of the Phone’s Specs


Since Samsung has been reported to take the entire initial batch of Snapdragon 835 shipments for its own use, other manufacturers including the LG and its upcoming G6 are probably going to have to use an older SoC in their devices. The latest benchmark takes the G6 for a spin and while the hardware specifications noted in the sheet are impressive, they reveal some important details for our readers as well as those who are willing to make an upgrade in the coming months.

LG G6 Benchmarking Run Reveals a Snapdragon 820, According to the Processor’s Clock Speed Shown in the Sheet

The model number ‘LG-H871’ has gone through a Geekbench run, which we’re assuming is the LG G6. While the operating system and the amount of RAM detailed provide little interest, what matters most is the chipset that’s going to be running inside the smartphone. According to the benchmark’s specs sheet, the LG G6 is going to be running a Snapdragon 820.

LG G6 Get Android Pie on Verizon and in Europe

Keep in mind that the specification data shows a quad-core processor running at a speed of 2.19GHz. The highest clock speed of the Snapdragon 820’s Kryo processor is 2.20GHz (lowest is 1.60GHz) while the maximum frequency of the Snapdragon 821 is 2.40GHz (lowest is 2.00GHz).

Under this comparison, we’d wager that the LG G6 is going to be outfitted with the Snapdragon 820, which is a darn shame because at the very least, the company could have incorporated a Snapdragon 821. However, all hope is not lost. After all, this is just a benchmarking run which you should take with a pinch of salt. The announcement of the G6 isn’t going to take until later this month and it looks like we’ll know everything shortly after the announcement, so stay tuned for further details.
