LG’s Odin-Powered Smartphone Tipped To Go Official Soon [REPORT]

By Anuj

LG is gearing up release its long-delayed Odin-powered smartphone later this week, reports CNET. According to the report, the supposed handset might be a variant of the LG G3, rather than a new flagship. That's because the company wishes to 'test run' the chipset initially.

Rumors of the phone first surfaced in early 2013, where it was reported that the company might use its 8-core capable chipset in the upcoming LG G2. Earlier this year, it was again reported that the company's forthcoming G3 handset would come fitted with the Odin CPU.

LG has been working on the new chip for some time now, but has apparently struggled with overheating and power-consumption issues.

Apparently LG's Odin chip will be based on an ARM Coretex-A15 architecture, and will support a big.LITTLE configuration. This means that the chip can switch between four high-power Cortex-A15s and four energy-sipping Cortex-A7s.

Basically, LG is trying to take on Samsung, which has adopted a similar structure for its own Exynos chips. Back in June, it was reported that the LG F490L could be the first device to run this new Odin processor. It is widely believed that the G Flex might use the Odin CPU.

If an Odin CPU-powered smartphone arrives before the end of the this week as rumored, we may now have a good idea of what it will look like, courtesy of CNET.
