The Xiaomi Mi-Two may have been the first announced with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon S4 Pro chip, but Qualcomm just let slip that its new chip will also be powering an upcoming LG device. The unnamed LG device will hit the Korean market in September with a global rollout to come at a later date. This unnamed LG device could be linked to recent rumors of the LG Optimus G, which is said to feature a quad-core processor, 13-megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM and access to voice over LTE.
Qualcomm will supply the latest Snapdragon™ S4 Pro platform to LG, enabling LG’s new quad-core smartphone, which is currently in production with anticipated commercial availability in Korea in September and global rollout to follow. This smartphone will be the newest commercial and global device to offer a quad core CPU Snapdragon S4 processor along with 3G/LTE multi-mode capabilities, delivering a superior mobile experience for voice, web browsing, games, user interfaces and other graphics applications.Qualcomm
The current breed of phones running on Qualcomm’s dual-core S4 processors have the best balance, battery life and system performance we have ever seen. Things can only get better with the new Snapdragon S4 Pro chip. We have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more of Qualcomm’s new chip in the coming months.
