Gossip about the variety of SoCs being incorporated in the latest smartphones are coming up to the headlines frequently in recent weeks. From Samsung's ARM-based Exynos 5 chipset to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800, all are equally being spoken about. Now the latest one comes dubbed as Odin from LG.
The SoC which is LG's in-house product is said to come in two different versions- one with quad-core and another with an octa-core solution.
The reports from Korean site Digital Time suggests that the quad-core version of the SoC will allegedly pack an ARM Mali-T604 GPU and runs at up to 2.2GHz per cor. On the other hand, the octa-core will feature ARM's latest Mali-T760 GPU.
Interestingly, the quad-core setup of the alleged Odin SoC is said to feature in LG's lineup of smart TVs. The octa-core solution will be powering the smartphones.
According to the reports, the Taiwanese chip maker TSMC will be responsible for the production of the chips.
The company has not commented on the SoC so far but looks like expecting to see them in the upcoming LG devices next year would be a safe bet.
Just a couple of days ago, Qualcomm also unveiled its latest Snapdragon 805 which supports the UHD Video in the smartphone.
