In the middle of last April several South Korean media published that LG was prepared to start manufacturing on a large scale of its new SoC Odin 8 core for smartphones and tablets. These same publications ensured that these chips, which are possibly being produced by TSMC, would be available in two versions with quad-core Cortex-A15 and other four Cortex-A7, but with different graphics logic (Mali-the most advanced T760 and Mali-the most affordable T604).
The interesting thing is that since we discovered that LG was working on its own microprocessor no one seemed to agree about the first mobile in which we would see it. There were who predicted that We would have it in the G3 (clearly that has not happened at the end), but is now gaining momentum, the possibility that the South Korean firm has decided to integrate it into the successor of the G-Flex.
At the moment there is nothing that we can be considered definitive, but it seems that this phone could respond to the internal name «Liger» and the code LG-F490L. This data comes from a Tweet posted yesterday itself by UpLeaks, one of the «filtrants’ most prolific and thoughtful of the network, together with Evleaks.
A few days ago several South Korean media published that LG is preparing a version of the G3 equipped with a Snapdragon SoC 805, so it is very unlikely that we will see a version of this mobile with SoC Odin. On the other hand, LG confirmed long ago that preparing a Flex 2 G and a 4 Vu for the second half of 2014, so it is likely that these are the two smartphones that finally reach the market with the first SoC designed by the own LG.
