LG announces their new Octa-Core chip in the LG G3 Screen

LG Nuclun processor

So, LG has just announced a new handset from the “G3” line. That may not sound surprising, but the processer certainly is. The oddly named LG G3 Screen is first smartphone to use LG’s in-house chipset, and it’s headed to Korea soon.

LG has produced a half-dozen variants of its popular LG G3 flagship, and you can now add another to that list. The LG G3 Screen gets its name from a large 5.9-inch panel, but it is not the same QHD display found on the flagship. Instead, the device has an FHD display to go along with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a 13MP/2.1MP camera combo

The highlight of the LG G3 screen is its processor, and it’s the new NUCLUN Octa-Core chip which clocks in at 1.5GHz quad-core + 1.2GHz quad-core. It’s going to be fast, and your network speeds will be as well with the LTE-A Cat.6 modem. The G3 Screen measures 157.8 x 81.8 x 9.5mm, weighs 182grams, and is powered by a 3,000mAh battery. As you’d expect, it will run Android KitKat 4.4 straight out of the box.

There’s been a lot of talk about the new 64-bit Snapdragon processors, and it’s nice to see some manufacturers like LG finally get their in-house SoC’s out. For the time being, the LG G3 Screen and its NUCLUN SoC will only be available in Korea, but that could change considering how many LG variants we’ve seen this year across the board.
