LG confirmed on Wednesday night that the next generation of “G” series smartphone will employ a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Why is it this important, you’re wondering? Because not only is it a beast in terms of performance but it’s also power-efficient and easy on the battery.

“We are pleased with continued collaboration with LG…Fully tailored and tightly integrated with the entire next G series platform, the new, best-in-class Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor will help deliver blazing fast web browsing, eye-popping graphics, seamless connectivity as well as an unmatched multimedia experience.” – Murthy Renduchintala, executive vice president, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and co-president, Qualcomm mobile and computing.

Key features in the Snapdragon 800 processor include:

  • Higher speeds with Krait 400 CPUs in quad configuration to deliver greater processing and communication performance;
  • Enhanced aSMP (asynchronous Symmetric Multiprocessing) architecture for dynamic power sensing and control for peak performance per core and improved battery life without the use of specialized cores;
  • Fully integrated connectivity with a wide variety of communication options including 4G LTE Advanced Carrier Aggregation;
  • New Adreno™ 330 GPU delivering more than two times better performance for compute applications over the current Adreno 320 GPU;
  • Video capture, playback and display in Ultra HD format, four times higher density than 1080p HD;
  • HD multichannel audio with DTS-HD and Dolby Digital Plus, supporting higher display resolutions up to 2560 x 2048 pixels and Miracast 1080p HD; and
  • Qualcomm IZat Location technology, featuring GNSS for more accurate navigation and location services.

The G2x was the phone that made me swear off LG forever. The phone had numerous issues right out from the start the biggest one was the really confused battery gauge. So i guess this will be a wait and see phone.
