LG is probably heading down the path of a home-brewed chipset much like Samsung and Huawei. Their particular first chipset, named Odin, will basically be an 8-core product, not unlike Samsung’s approaching computer chip. LG has been said to delegate manufacturing to a Taiwanese TSMC chip producer.

The source claims the chipset depends on ARM’s big.Small architecture, which makes use of four Cortex-A15 cores utilizing 28 nanometer degree processing and four low-powered Cortex-A7 cores.

It’s an endeavor to balance among digesting power and power consumption. The four A15 cores is going to be accessible for heavy-duty processing, while the A7′s may deal with much less strenuous duties. The device may hence have plenty of digesting power on faucet, to don’t use anything but as needed.

LG’s Odin is anticipated to premiere in cell phones nevertheless it will also have used in other places – tablets possibly – though LG happen to be obviously overlooking this side of the business in latest years.
