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.
