LG Nuclun 2 delayed to next year so that the chipset can offer an integrated LTE-A modem

LG Nuclun 2 delayed to next year so that the chipset can offer an integrated LTE-A modem
The LG G3 Screen is a larger-screened version of the LG G3 (5.9-inches), powered by the manufacturer's in-house big.LITTLE octa-core LG Nuclun chipset. The phone was introduced almost exactly a year-ago, along with the LG branded SoC. But the chip had issues with overheating, which reduced its performance. Anonymous industry sources said that the Nuclun was one generation behind entry-level chips from China, and would throttle its clock speed whenever things got hot. As a result, the LG G3 Screen ended up having its price dropped regularly

Rumors about a sequel chip, the LG Nuclun 2, started circulating in August. A Geekbench test showed that the chip out scored the Exynos 7420 on both the single-core and multi-core tallies. As good as that sounds to LG fans, a report published today says that the the Nuclun 2 is apparently being delayed until 2016. The reason for the delay has nothing to do with a performance issue. In fact, it might be considered good news.

Apparently, LG is looking to integrate an LTE-A modem with its Nuclun 2 SoC. The modem that LG is said to have in mind is Intel’s XMM 7360 LTE-A, with support for Cat.10 download speeds of 450Mbps. It supports carrier aggregation for FDD and TDD spectrum, VoLTE, and Dual SIM capabilities. The Nuclun 2 will carry a quad-core Cortex-A72 CPU running as fast as 2.1GHz. A quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU maxes out at 1.5GHz. Integrating the modem should improve performance of the Nuclun 2, and allow it to run faster with greater power conservation.

The Nuclun 2 is rumored to start mass production in the first half of next year, and will be produced by TSMC using its 16nm process. Hopefully for LG, with its in-house SoC, things will work out better the second time around.

Thanks for the tip!
