Snapdragon 800-powered LG F320 could be LG G2
LG F320 powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 shows up in benchmarks. Could it be the LG G2 or Nexus 5?
A device called the LG-F320 powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 just showed up in an AnTuTu benchmark. But nobody seems to have a clue what it could be. The folks over at GSMinsider point to the LG G2, noting that this could very well be the recently leaked device.
The benchmark comes from South Koreah and it shows a processor clocked at 2.3GHz, which most likely means it’s the ever popular Snapdragon 800. The LG G2 device has already been confirmed to include the aforementioned processor, so that adds up quite nicely.
However, some have also suggested that there’s a slight chance the mystery LG device could be the Nexus 5. But that seems highly unlikely given that LG noted not long ago that it was not working on a Nexus 5 smartphone.
The LG Optimus G2 is currently rumored for a Q3 release date and will likely serve as LG’s next flagship phone. Aside from the speedy processor, the device is expected to feature improved battery life, 4G LTE support and increased data speeds.
The Snapdragon 800 CPU will help the phone deliver 75 percent better performance than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro chip:
"With a powerful combination of LG's core smartphone technologies and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, we are taking a significant step forward in the mobile experience,” LG Electronics CEO Jong-seok Park recently said in a report. "The result of this collaboration will in many ways be the industry's best smartphone by which all other devices will be measured."
We should find out soon enough whether this is the LG G2, as LG is scheduled to hold a press event in New York on Aug. 7. In the meantime, let us know what you think. Are you still hoping for an LG Nexus 5?
