LG made its first mark in the processor segment with the launch of LG G3 Screen which came powered by NUCLUN, the South Korean company's in-house octa-core processor. Initially, this smartphone was exclusively made available for the Korean market and after the release, some of the officials reported that its sales have been hit hard because of its NUCLUN processor.
Reportedly, the problem in the chipset is said to downgrade its clock speed very aggressively under high temperature which results in crashing and lagging. Facing the poor sales growth, due to sluggish performance, LG G3 Screen price has been dropped to $179.
The LG NUCLUN is an octa-core 32-bit processor built on ARM's big.LITTLE design. This octa core has four ARM Cortex-A15 cores clocked at 1.5GHz and four ARM Cortex-A7 cores running on 1.2GHz. The industrial analyst are saying that LG has to work on its issue with declining processor performance resulting from overheat. Further, the NUCLUN is designed to automatically reduce the clockspeed due to heating problem.
But there is no official words from the company's end, as the above information is just speculated. It is likely the problem with firmware is causing sluggish performance and there might not be any issue with their chipset.
Meanwhile, the LG G3 Screen smartphone comes with 5.9-inch display, 1.2GHz octa-core NUCLUN processor alongside 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory and has expansion slot, 13MP rear camera, 2.1MP front camera and runs on Android 4.4.
