First LG G7 benchmark leaks some underwhelming specs

First LG G7 benchmark leaks some underwhelming specs
The LG G7 ThinQ has already been certified in Korea under the codename LGE GM-710, and that internal number has popped up in the cross-platform Geekbench database, carrying some revelations that confirm the specs rumors.

First off, the phone is indeed going to be powered by Qualcomm's latest and greatest Snapdragon 845 chipset, which means up to 2.8 GHz clock speeds, up to 1.2 Gbps LTE Cat. 18 download speeds, and 4K video recording at 60fps are all supported. 

The system has clocked pretty high single- and multi-core scores that are in line with the top Galaxy S9 results, as both carry the same computing power. Apple's newest A11 processor clocks much higher results, especially in single-core tests, but seemingly at higher average clock speeds, so Snapdragon 845 in the G7 will be plenty powerful for everyone's tastes.

The ho-hum part in the leaked specs, however, is the RAM amount. It is listed as 4GB, while previous rumors pointed to 6GB, and there are even 8GB RAM flagships out there. If history is any indications, LG could out a G7 version with more RAM and storage, but that one will cost you extra in an era of already record average high-end phone prices.

Yeah I mean twice the single core score and 25 percent more multiple core with that 3 gigs is indeed disappointing. Troll.

25% more single core score! Your math seems a bit off. For 125% of 9000, you would need a score of around 11250, which no phone achieves.

845s average multi score is around 8300-8500. 125 percent of 8500 is 10625 thats close to Apple's 10200-10400 keep in mind A11 is 5 months older than 845

8300-8500 is the score which the S9s give. That will always be the lower end of what the chip is capable of. The 845 will do a lot better on other phones like the Oneplus 6, G7 and pixel 3, like this score suggests. The 845 is a better chip than the A11 in terms of multi-core. A11 has a power consumption of 3W while 845 does with ~1.2W due to narrower pipeline, while being marginally slower. Not to mention it has a much more powerful and efficient GPU as well.

The author mentioned “underwhelming” not “disappointing” and it was in reference to the rumors pointing towards 6 GB of RAM instead of 4 GB. If you are expecting something more but get something less instead, you would almost always say that you were underwhelmed.

4GB is more than enough.

Actually S9 plus snapdragon 845 single core is 2470, but cause of throttling of snapdragon 845 single core goes to down to 2007!.

Nothing underwhelming about the G7 specs 4gb of RAM is plenty although 6gb would be better.

Would rather it was well optimized and the money saved from using slightly less RAM was put into an excellent camera and battery.

I love LG but they are just digging their own grave. If LG needs to do something, then it is to go all out with raw specs (especially RAM) and cut the prices at launch making it only a little expensive than the OP counterparts.

Still no phone beats iPhone X and S9 plus Exyonse 9810 when it comes to singlecore and multicore.

20. fyah_king unregistered

And by your logic, no phones can beat sd845 in antutu

I just hope they come out with a dual sim variant, due to work and home business I need dual sim versions.
