LG G4: leaked benchmark result reveals Snapdragon 808 chip
The LG G4, one of the most anticipated Android smartphones at this point, was spotted today in the GFXBench database. The main highlight of the leaked specs is the hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chip.
It looks like the upcoming LG flagship could be based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, a chipset that comes with a dual-core ARM Cortex A57 CPU and a quad-core ARM Cortex A53 CPU. Although the Snapdragon 808 should be one of the fastest chips around, it's interesting to see that LG turned away from the Snapdragon 810.
The Snapdragon 810, the fastest chip that Qualcomm currently makes, features a quad-core A57 CPU and a quad-core A53 CPU. LG already used the Snapdragon 810 in the LG G Flex 2, which is why the Snapdragon 808 is an intriguing choice. One reason for this could be the Snapdragon 810 overheating issues that we've kept hearing about in the past few months. On the other hand, another possible explanation is that LG will try to differentiate the LG G4 from the rumored LG G4 Pro, a beefed up version of the standard flagship which expected to feature a metallic construction.
According to this recent leak, the LG G4 will feature a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels (QHD). Other LG G4 specs leaked by the GFXBench result include 3GB of RAM, 32GB of integrated storage, a 16MP primary camera and an 8MP secondary shooter on the front.
It's probably best to mention that the leaked benchmark result is likely to originate from a prototype device, and not the final version of the LG G4. Many manufacturers use multiple configurations to test upcoming devices. As such, make sure to digest these specs with the proverbial grain of salt.
