LG announced its own mobile chipset, dubbed the ‘NUCLUN’ which employs a quad-core 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A15 for heavy processing and a quadcore 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A7 for lighter processing. LG termed this unique octa-core architecture ‘big.LITTLE’ . It supports LTE-A Cat.6, which is only available currently in South Korea. Therefore, it is logical that the device with which this SoC debuted with, LG G3 Screen, a 5.9″ G3, with a slightly lower resolution display; Full HD screen, and slightly better speaker, is designed specifically for the South Korean market.

This will prove to be an interesting turn of events, as another powerful contender joins the likes of Qualcomm, NVIDIA, and Samsung in the relatively unsaturated market of high-end mobile processing packages.

    The big.LITTLE design has been around for a couple of years now. LG didn’t invent or coin any new terms here, as the article suggests.
