The first sign of an LG smartphone with its upcoming Odin processor has arrived. The model number of the unknown device was posted by @UpLeaks, who says “Liger_LGU_KR is the first phone which powered by LG Odin chipset.” The first part is probably some identification code, but the actual model number is allegedly LG-F490L. What the device will actually be called, we do not know. But we do know that it will have a new octa-core processor made in-house at LG.

LG finally ends rumors and confirms its own mobile processor is in the works

lgodin_251248239389_640x360

It has been rumored for months now that LG is planning on producing its very own mobile processing chip dubbed as “Odin.” Today LG has finally came forth to end those rumors and confirmed that those reports are indeed true and that they are working with TSMC to make it happen. The SoC will feature LG’s very own ARM-based design with rumors having it at four 2.2GHz Cortex-A15 cores and four Cortex-A7 cores clocked at 1.7GHz with the GPU being a PowerVR Series 6.

[Rumor] LG working on SoC that will enter mass production soon

LG_Logo_02_TA_CES_2014LG is rumored to working on a homemade SoC that is based on the ARM architecture. Odin, as it’s being called, is rumored to come with four 2.2 GHz Cortex-A15s and four Cortex-A7s clocked at 1.7GHz. They will use a 28nm manufacturing process.

Rumors started back in the original Optimus G days but didn’t even make it into the G, G2, or G Pad 8.3. Even though it’s rumored to enter mass production soon, the SoC probably won’t be in the G3 either. LG looks to be having issues with the final design. It wanted to internalize the development and didn’t want to base the new SoC on Qualcomm Snapdragon processing that it was going to do initially. It’s rumored that LG wants to test out the concept on low-end devices first, rather than risk anything with the G3.

If rumors pan out, we may see a device packing the Odin SoC in the second half of the year.

AnTuTu benchmark suggests Huawei’s octa-core Kirin 920 is as fast as the Snapdragon 805 processor

huawei_octa_core_kirin_920_antutu

Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 805 processor may not be the biggest and baddest one on the market in the future. According to a new AnTuTu benchmark, Huawei’s own octa-core Kirin 920 processor performs just as good. The processor is arranged with four Cortex-A7 and four Cortex-A15 CPU with ARM big.LITTLE architecture and Mali-T624; however, it is unknown if all eight cores can actually run at the same time. While the Snapdragon 805 earned 37,780 points, Huawei’s Kirin 920 came scored 37,363. Not too bad right?

It is becoming increasingly clear that Qualcomm is gaining some competition, even beyond Huawei. Samsung continues to release new Exynos processors (for part of the world) and even LG is working on Odin for future devices. Then there is NVIDIA, who is still working on gaining some of the attention Qualcomm stole from them in the mobile market. If not 2014, 2015 will be a year for secondary processors to become more prevalent.

LG Odin processor shows up in Antutu benchmarks

lg_odin_antutu_01

A few days ago information surfaced regarding possible specs for the new LG G3 smartphone expected to be released during 2014. Among those specs was a reference to LG’s Odin processor, their own in-house chip that has been in development for a while now. The ability to produce component parts in house will be a key part of LG’s strategy if they want to challenge Samsung’s supremacy. Results have now surfaced that seem to indicate the Odin chip have been run through the paces with the Antutu benchmark, though we may be left still wondering just what Odin is capable of as well as whether the test device was an early prototype of the LG G3.

LG will be getting into the processor game pretty soon, as rumors are swirling regarding a new processor from the manufacturer called “Odin.”

It was originally thought that LG’s L2 would feature Odin, but instead offered a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU.

Now, DigitalTimes is reporting that LG has said that Odin has two versions. One has a quad-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz and has an ARM Mali-T604 GPU, and the other has eight cores with ARM’s Mali-T760 GPU. The SoCs are currently being tested, but an announcement date is not mentioned.

LG Optimus G2 to launch at IFA 2013 with LG’s in house processor

lg-logo

Recent reports from Korea suggest that LG is planning to manufacture its own processors for its upcoming LG Optimus G2. This comes from a telephone conversation from an anonymous LG official in Korea:

LG Electronics is going to mass-produce the Odin processors by using finer 28-nanometer level processing, applying high-k metal gate (HKMG) technology. The processors will be used in LG’s next flagship Optimus smartphone ― the Optimus GII ― which will probably be unveiled in this fall’s IFA trade fair

Sony’s 2013 potential flagship devices ousted; Quad-core Cortex-A15 with a huge battery is expected

Recently there have been rumblings of Sony releasing some hefty Android juggernauts in the coming year of 2013. Codename’s of Sony’s Yuga/Odin have been flying around lately and is expected to be one hell of a device. With Sony recently taking HTC’s #2 spot and only behind Samsung when it comes to Androids top manufacturers, I’m sure they’re preparing for a big push this next year to challenge that top spot.

The leaks are pointing towards 5+” full HD displays paired with a  quad-core Cortex-A15 processors along with 13 MP Exmor RS cameras on the back. Here’s what the Sony tipster had to say:

Images leak for the Sony C6603 ‘Yuga’

We reported about a new Sony beast dubbed the “Odin” or C650X (the X gets replaced with a number) from a leaked agent profile and shortly after, an image leaked. Now we have images of a C6603 compliments of German site Android Schweiz, with a codename “Yuga”. I am assuming this is the same phone, but with a new bump in the model number. The specs seem the same as anticipated, 5-inch 1080p display, 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, and running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. They are claiming the camera is 12MP, but you would think it would be the 13MP Exmor RS. Who knows, that could still change. Another tidbit is that it will sport a unibody design so that means no removable battery, but they will include a microSD slot and microHDMI port. Could we see this at CES? More pics after the break.

Leaked user agent profile reveals the C650X ‘Odin’ to be the next Sony Xperia flagship

The Sony Xperia T just came out, but you know Sony is already hard at work on their next flagship (and probably the one after that). A leaked user agent profile has revealed a phone codenamed Odin with a few model numbers; C6502, C6503, and C6506. That last number being the only different number could point towards regional variations. Unfortunately we don’t know too much more other than it’s running Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.

There are also two more devices that were revealed, but not as high profile. They are similar to the Xperia tipo and Xperia miro and their model numbers are C1505 and C1604/C1605. They both sport HVGA (480 x 360) displays and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. The C1604/C1605 sports a Snapdragon S4, while the CPU for the C1505 is probably the same, but it’s officially not known.
