LG Odin 2.2 GHz octa-core mobile processor prepped for G2 and G Pad successors
Just as speculated before, LG is apparently indeed testing a mobile chipset of its own, codenamed Odin, in both a quad-core and octa-core versions. The chips should sport Cortex-A15 cores clocked at 2.2 GHz, and a big.LITTLE configuration with four powerful Cortex-A15s, and four frugal Cortex-A7s, clocked at 1.7 GHz. 

Last time we heard about Odin, the numbers were 1.7 GHz, and 1.2 GHz, respectively, and it was supposed to appear in the G2, but apparently LG has decided to make its Odin series more futureproof when they are ready for prime time. Given what Qualcomm announced with the 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 805 the other day, we can't blame LG for the shot at perfectionism.

Mali-T604/T624 and T720/T760 are cited by the source as GPU candidates for the Odin series, but we'd chalk the last ones to wishful thinking, as T760 was just announced by ARM three weeks ago, and we doubt we'll see it in a chipset that is already in the engineering test phase.

The Mali-T604/T624 GPU is said to be clocked at the respectable 600 MHz, which would mean a pretty good performance, and with TSMC tasked to produce the Odin chipset with its 28nm process, we can be certain the power envelope will stay in decent limits, too.

The quad-core Odin is rumored to go in LG electronics like Smart TVs, while the big.LITTLE octa-core chipset is said to make its way in LG's flagship smartphones next year, as well as a rumored G Pad tablet successor.

Nice to see more variety. It seems like 99% of flagship phones this year had Snapdragons while only 1% had Tegra

you forgot to count in Exynos :) . Samsung flagship still like S4 and note 3 still offer variant based on their own Exynos.

This time LG is fast enough with G2 and Nexus as they are now available in India.

Mali? Bull. It's the PowerVR from Imagination.
