LG announces its octa-core NUCLUN processor, alongside the G3 Screen smartphone
LG just announced its very first mobile application processor, alongside the first smartphone to be powered by it.

The processor is called NUCLUN, and LG advises us to pronounce it “NOO-klun.” It’s an octa-core chipset that uses four ARM Cortex-A15 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz (for intensive tasks), and four ARM Cortex-A7 cores clocked at 1.2 GHz (these kicking in when less intensive processes are being executed). The new chipset uses ARM big.LITTLE technology, and supports LTE-A Cat.6 - allowing download speeds of up to 225 Mbps.

LG did not say if it plans to use the NUCLUN widely in the future, but - as mentioned above - it did unveil the first handset to rely on it. The handset is the LG G3 Screen (model numbers F490L, F490K, and F490S), of which we told you about earlier today, as well as earlier this week (when it was codenamed LG Liger). 

The G3 Screen looks like a slightly larger LG G3, featuring a 5.9-inch IPS display with 1080 x 1920 pixels. It’s also got a “high fidelity” 1W speaker, 13 MP rear camera with OIS+, a 2.1 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable memory, and a 3000 mAh battery. The handset runs Android 4.4 KitKat, weighs 182 grams, and measures 157.8 x 81.8 x 9.5 mm. According to LG, the G3 Screen is developed specifically for the South Korean market, where it will cost about $750.

This is just a G Pro 2 with different SOC and smaller battery.
And people say Samsung has a lot of variants.
Also no information on GPU?

This big.LITTLE nonsense needs to stop. It's time for some proper octa-core processors. Also, 3GB of expandable memory, is that a typo?...

Extreme low energy true octa core sounds good to me. I guess currently energy and heat are the culprit.

So does this phone have a 64bit processor?

7. vincelongman (Posts: 4241; Member since: 10 Feb 2013)


Nope, 32-bit A15 and A7 cores (mostly likely not custom cores)

a midrange chipset? and why name it NUCLUN? why not Odin? why does some Android oems need to have terrible naming? all this technology with a NUCLUN name. it's supposed to be swaggy? really they should learn from apple as names are as important as the phone itself. hey my phone has the new NUCLUN processor. get a life

It is for the Korean market from what I see.
Not even other Asian markets. So maybe NUCLUN makes sense to them compared to a German God.
