LG working on 8-core chip called Odin, Optimus G II bound

LG logoThe LG Optimus G II is still some time ahead with an expected launch next fall, but the rumor mill is already in motion regarding its chipset, as the KoreaTimes reports.

LG is probably heading down the route of a home-brewed chipset much like Samsung and Huawei. Their first chipset, dubbed Odin, will essentially be an 8-core unit, not unlike Samsung's upcoming chip. LG is said to outsource manufacturing to a Taiwanese TSMC chip maker.

The source claims the chipset will be based on ARM's big.LITTLE architecture, which utilizes four Cortex-A15 cores using 28 nanometer level processing and four low-powered Cortex-A7 cores.

It's an attempt to balance between processing power and power consumption. The four A15 cores will be available for heavy-duty processing, while the A7's will handle less demanding tasks. The device will thus have plenty of processing power on tap, to only use when needed.

LG's Odin is expected to premiere in smartphones but it may also get used elsewhere - tablets perhaps - though LG have been clearly overlooking this side of the business in recent years.
