LG NUCLUN is the company’s first processor, is also inside the G3 Screen phablet


LG is a pretty big player in the mobile world. It’s got smartphones, dumbphones, displays, batteries and more. Now it’s in the mobile processor game too.

LG tonight unveiled NUCLUN, its first mobile application processor. The octa-core chipset uses ARM’s big.LITTLE tech and includes four 1.5GHz ARM Cortex-A15 cores for its high performance needs as well as four 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A7 cores for less demanding processing. LG has also included LTE-A Cat. 6 capabilities into NUCLUN.


Along with its new processor, LG tonight also revealed the first phone that’ll be powered by NUCLUN. The LG G3 Screen features a 5.9-inch 1080p IPS display, 13-megapixel rear camera with OIS+, 2.1-megapixel front camera and 32GB of storage that can be expanded upon with a microSD card. Also included in the G3 Screen’s 9.5mm-thick body is 2GB of RAM, a 3000mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.

LG hasn’t revealed when or where the G3 Screen will go on sale. Don’t be surprised if there’s a lot of interest surrounding the device when it does arrive, though, because we’re sure that a lot of people will be eager to see how LG’s first mobile processor compares to big players like Qualcomm, NVIDIA and Samsung.

    phablet…really… this is a thing now

    • Clone Clooney

      “Phablet” has been a thing, a term for phone tablet ever since the Galaxy Note.

  • Richard Yarrell

    Another useless boring Lg fake wanna be phablet pretty shameful to say the least.

    When will these silly perpetrators give up this Samsung envy and realize they are making themselves look pitiful.

    First the 2012 Iphone 6 Plus pretty comical then the silly stock android featureless boring and extremely dull wanna be phablet the Nexus 6.

    Now this this useless product from Lg as if the Lg Gpro and Gpro 2 wasn’t enough. It shows how sad and desperate Lg has become.

    All the phablets they have are a sad flop it’s pretty comical truthfully.

    • Semproxion

      Much as it pains me to say, the iPhone 6 Plus (launched in 2014 btw) is selling particularly well to the point that Foxconn are taking on new employees to cope with increased production.

      The two other products you mention aren’t available yet and there is no possible way you could compare them other than on paper.

      On paper, me dating Emma Watson is better than dating my current girlfriend. In the real-world, dating Emma Watson could be a complete disaster.

      You keep banging on how Google’s Nexus line is dull and “stock” whilst forgetting that without the Nexus line there would be no OS for your precious Samsung devices. They’d probably still be running some form of BADA which was horrendously bad.

      Oh and before you keep droning on about Samsung inventing the phablet, I give you the following that were all given the moniker:

      2007 HTC Advantage (5.0 inch screen)
      2007 Nokia N810WiMAX Edition (4.13″ screen)
      2009 Verizon Hub (7.0″ screen)
      2010 LG GW990 (4.8″ screen)
      2010 Dell Streak (5.0″ screen)
      2011 Dell Streak 7 (7.0″ screen)
      2011 Acer Iconia Smart (4.8″ screen)
      2011 Samsung Galaxy Player 5 (5.0″ screen)
      2011 Pantech Pocket

      The Note came after these.

      If anything, the only thing pretty comical, truthfully, are your comments on this website. You are single-handedly worse that every fanboy I’ve ever come across, at least others try to bring pseudo-factoids into the argument

      • Richard Yarrell

        I can’t help but laugh at your faceless cowardice ways. Thanks for the worst list of devices people have ever seen no wonder android always sucked monkey balls until 2011.

        Stop the madness and the hate we don’t need fools like you to give credit where credit is do your not capable of that so I will do it for you.

        It’s pretty plain and simple for me since May 2011. Nothing beats Samsung or the Galaxy Note products period they are Android nothing else matters.

        Stop being a typical loser on Androidandme it’s comical your kind exist here. Get lost pecker

        • Semproxion

          Firstly, I work in a data-secure environment, hence the fact that I can only post on a guest account due to login restrictions. Nothing to do with cowardice. Secondly I didn’t specify that they were good devices, merely that there were phablets before Note therefore Samsung didn’t invent the concept.

          You beg for people to stop the hate, how about you quit with the hypocrisy and stop first?

          Also you REALLY need to learn that Samsung DO NOT OWN OR EVEN CODE THE ANDROID OS

          As for the last line in your comment, really you’re going to use that, seriously?

        • NFMejia

          You’re still trolling the internet claiming that you have been a Samsung fanatic since May 2011. Just shut the f*ck up you welfare having bandwagon a*hole! June or July 2011 you were still swearing the HTC Evo 3D was the future of Android and that HTC was Android. Stupid a$$ f*ck!

    • John Patrick

      Although I agree with you to an extent, dude you need to reign it in….or switch to decaf. The biggest disappointment to me is that these other new big screen devices don’t include a stylus and the correct digitizer to use them. I dunno, maybe Wacom signed an exclusive with Samsung…

    • diordna

      It’s been pretty plain and simple since May 2011 nothing beats Richard Yarrell period, he is Samsung nothing else matters. /s

  • Rising33

    There are other stylus companies besides Wacom. This is exciting because it raises the bar and sturs competition which in the end is good for everyone. Mr Yarell has no clue of what the heck he is saying, mindless actually. This is what brings new enovation and pushes other companies to do better and not get lazy and sit back.

    • Richard Yarrell

      Kissing ass on Androidandme will get you nowhere my friend. Establish your own identity.

      • snowbdr89

        Dick established his own identity as the complete dummy!!

        • Bryce

          Richard Yarrel talks trash on anything that isn’t made by Samsung. Samsung is a great company, touchwiz on the note 4 looks better thn it has on previous Samsung phones. Touchwiz is what caused to go to a s4 to a 5s. However android L looks amazing, so i might switch to the nexus 6.

  • TruFactz

    Priceless Richard. You always seem to end your positive streak with a bang, this one is one of the most comical. As a user of both brands’ phones I am excited to see what LG has to offer in the mobile processing array. I wonder what the GPU capabilities are. For a octa core, this I must say is a nice start LG.
