LG will be releasing its first smartphone with home-brewed Odin processor soon. Probably as early as the end of this month. On the other hand, the company's new handset that appeared earlier this month on the Bluetooth certification site is the new device, that LG fans would be soon talking about.
The LG Liger that comes with a model number F490L has yet again appeared online confirming its existence. The image leak suggests that LG is preparing a marketing document for the same handset. Thus, the new device is highly being expected to launch sooner than later.
According to the leaked document, LG would call its Odin processor with a new name - Nuclun. It will have an octa-core CPU with four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz and four at 1.2 GHz. Moreover, it was reportedly said that the chipset will also support Cat.6 LTE connectivity, which allows for theoretical peak download speeds of up to 300Mbps.
As far as the specs are concerned, the LG Liger would sport a massive 5.9-inch 1080p display. Although, it would be a sort of flagship device, but it will bear a 13 MP rear camera with OIS+ and a 2.1 MP front-facing snapper. The chipset would be complimented by 2GB of RAM. Other specs include 32GB of built-in storage and a 3,000 mAh battery. Its design is very much in line with that of the G3, as you may have expected. Its dimensions are 157.8 x 81.8 x 9.45 mm.
Talking about the availability, according to Blogofmobile, the Liger will be released in South Korea through domestic carrier LG U+.
LG has not officially conformed about the device as of now. However, you can expect it to launch soon.
