LG is now in the ARM Processor market with its first Smartphone oriented Octa Core NUCLUN Processor. It will come with the LG G3 Variant, LG G3 Screen smartphone which has been “developed specifically for the Korean market” and will debut this week in the country
According to LG, Nuclun supports Heterogeneous processing, thus it can adjust the number of performing cores based on the requirements of the task for maximum processing power or maximum energy savings.
NUCLUN (pronounced NOO-klun) was designed using ARM big.LITTLE™ technology for efficient multi-tasking capabilities. The AP employs four 1.5GHz cores (ARM Cortex-A15) for high performance and four 1.2GHz cores (ARM Cortex-A7) for less intensive processing. The number of performing cores can be adjusted based on the requirements of the task for maximum processing power or maximum energy savings. NUCLUN is designed to support the next generation of 4G networks, LTE-A Cat.6, for maximum download speeds of up to 225Mbps while retaining backward compatibility with current LTE networks.
“NUCLUN opens up a new chapter in LG’s history of innovation in the mobile industry,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “With this in-house solution, we will be able to achieve better vertical integration and further diversity our product strategy against stronger competition. NUCLUN will give us greater flexibility in our mobile strategy going forward.”
Additionally, The G3 Screen will have similar design, camera, and user experience features as the LG G3 phone. It will sport a 5.9-inch full HD IPS display, 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, and a 13 megapixel rear camera and 2.1 megapixel front camera, and it will run on Android 4.4 Kitkat.
