LG To Pack Its Upcoming Smartphones With L9 Processors
There are several features users pay attention to when buying a smartphone. Those are the design, screen size, processor, camera lens and the OS. Unfortunately, there aren’t many handsets that stand out with their design, but if we look better, we can find a couple with astonishing appearance. As for the screen size, most of current smartphones launched by top manufacturers sport 4-inch (or bigger) displays. Finally, processors are what I want to speak about.
The high-end smartphones available on the market sport either Qualcomm or Nvidia processors. Of course, there are exceptions like Samsung that pack their handsets with Exynos, which is their own product. LG have been using processors designed by other companies for a long time, but as now they want to make a real competition to the leading manufacturers like Apple and Samsung, they have to take the wheel in their hands. I guess that’s the main reason they’ve started working on a processor of their own called L9.
This info is not officially confirmed yet, but it seems to be quite reliable. The rumors say the L9 will be a quad-core silicon; the moniker 9 throws us in confusion, as this processor seems to be an ARM Cortex-A9 competitor rather than something to beat the Cortex A15, which is planned for the next year.
LG are going to pack their upcoming flagship with this processor, which will be paired with a True HD screen found on the LG Optimus 4X HD and a camera with lens larger than 10MP. This means LG want to power their devices with components made by themselves, and if this really happens, we’ll have another manufacturer acting like Samsung.
