LG G4 will be release on April 28 and as the date comes ever so near, the rumour mill starts to spice up and the things get a little more clearer. According to the latest news, LG are set to use the Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor instead of the Snapdragon 810 processor.
As it is widely known, Snapdragon 810 has some heating issues. Though some manufacturers have gone ahead with this processor, LG are having second thoughts about it. This comes only days after it was reported that LG will go ahead with Snapdragon 810.
An LG source revealed, “Instead of using Qualcomm’s latest 810 Snapdragon processor, the G4 will use the Snapdragon 808. As far as I know, Qualcomm will be able to resolve overheating issues of the 810 processor chip in the latter half of this year.”
Snapdragon 808 features a hexa-core processor, having dual-core ARM Cortex A57 and quad-core A53, whereas Snapdragon 810 is an octa-core processor featuring quad-core ARM Cortex A57 and quad-core A53. Both the chips support 64-bit computing.
LG have sent out the invites for the G4. It will be launched on April 28 and 29 across six locations.
