Did the LG Optimus G2 go through the GLBenchmark site?

Did the LG Optimus G2 go through the GLBenchmark site?
A mysterious smartphone went through the GLBenchmark site, packing the Adreno 330 GPU which means that it is also powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. Android 4.2.2 is installed on the phone, which has a FHD screen (with virtual buttons) and at 1210 frames, the device tops the benchmark list surpassing the score of other high end handsets like the HTC One.

Other information that we can glean from the GLBenchmark listing is the 1.7GHz clock speed of the processor (which is the MSM8974) and the model number which is the LG-D801. It all adds up as being the LG Optimus G2, which actually shows up on the GLBenchmark listing under device name. The model is expected to be released this fall after an introduction this September at the IFA show in Berlin. While earlier indications were that the phone would have the Odin octo-core processor, the GLBenchmark listing shows that the Qualcomm chip will be employed.

This will be a top-shelf model from the Korean manufacturer with a 5.5 inch screen and judging from the benchmark results, it seems that this could be a real powerhouse.

Thanks Anonymous Tipster!

Thats about the right time for that kind of specs to be released on a phone. Sounds like it has potential except I am sure it wont be the only one with that hardware out when it is

It's an LG phone and it's faster than Ipad 4 but Ipad still smoke the LG cause of quad core GPU. LG shows the benchmark to show Samsung we still can smoke you even with octa core.

iPad 4 is a big 9.7 "inch tablet. That chip will never be in a phone Because its too big, too hot and drains battery. A truck or a car, you can see the difference? The cores in iPad 4 and iPhone 5 is not faster then Snapdragon 600 or OCTA's Crotex A15 cores even if it would have 4 cores, but now it does not have 4 cores so you can dream on.

I was thinking that as well. For example, the Note III with Sammy's octacore Exynos will be approaching release around that time. I wonder how the octacore Exynos compares to the S800.

Is the Snapdragon 800 a full A15 or still Krait based architecture????? I know the 600 is still Krait based, which is why the Exynos 5 series will dominate it (not because of the dual 4 cores).. Either way, will be interesting to see which mobile CPU remains on top by the end of this year.

Sadly LG can have the fastest phone of 2013 and they still will not be big. Samsung claimed the Android throne in 2011 with the Galaxy S II and have continued to grow since then. Sad because LG's Optimus G series is very nice.

Actually, Samsung claimed the Android throne in 2010 with the GS1 along with HTC with the Evo 4G.

The Prada phone has a claim to fame... I thought that was LG built? If not that then at least the Chocolate and EnV phones were pretty big in their day too. Of course, those are all pretty dated and limited devices by today's standards. And that's a shame that haven't found much notoriety elsewhere because the LG Optimus (at least the Optimus G-series) is one pretty damn sweet phone.

Samdung? I can't think what you're doing on PhoneArena if you think LG will surpass Samsung, don't you read news about Samsung? I think you don't know Samsung enough, do some research..

You know what? Last year Optimus G, One X and GSIII were announced almost at the same time and were almost priced same. LG Optimus G had the best benchmark and it also got 2gigs of ram but their lacking in updates ruined that phone. I wish they will fix this problem!

I have no idea where you got your information from but optimus g was announced in october which makes it almost half year newer than SGS 3. One X and SGS3 were announced at almost the exact time but not Optimus G. Optimus G = september. SGS3 = May. And as far as I know LG sold over 1 million units, I know that it is not 20 million like SGS3 but it is something. As I yesterday tried some phones in a store, I also tried Optimus G. And it is very good as far as I am concerned. With its apq8064 it sure isnĀ“t lacking for power, the UI was as fluid as on the SGS3. But there is one thing that I love with LG and that is that they are trying to make the bezels as small as possible so the Optimus G feeled very small in comparison to SGS3. All I can do is to wish LG the very best for their smartphones are very good, not best but they should sell much more than they are right now.

I'm on sprint and can tell you the optimus g received 4.1.2 before at&T's one x got jellybean and also got the update almost the same day as the s3. I was skeptical too but the phone is great and possibly the best on the carrier. I'm not sure about the at&t version's updates but the sprint version is currently on par with other flagships on updates. I would say lack of advertising may have led to the phone's lack of sales as the commercials were on heavy rotation the first two weeks the phone was out and were gone after that.

Atleast optimus UI is not cartoonish.
