LG puts up a "2nd generation quad-core" teaser site, talks a phone with Adreno 320 graphics in a video

LG puts up a
Alright, despite the Qualcomm claims that its quad-core APQ8064 chipset with "Krait" cores and Adreno 320 graphics processor is mainly for tablets, it is seemingly fit for smartphones as well, since the rumors of upcoming devices with the silicon are now reaching their peak.

After Qualcomm confirmed a quad-core LG phone with this Adreno 320 GPU is coming, now LG itself has also spilled the beans on the alleged Optimus G, putting a corporate teaser website up for the world to see. The first video is also up, but apart from the "S4 Pro", "Adreno 320 3x [faster]", and "40% CPU [performance increase]" international chipset terminology and graphics, we couldn't grasp much other details. 

There are slots for five more videos on the website, though, so there will be some wait until LG takes the wrap off the rumored 4.7" quad-core beast with multimode LTE/HSPA+ radio, 2GB of RAM and 13MP camera. 

Or, as Google Translate puts it: "Existing quad-core compared to more than 40 percent and improved CPU performance, more than three times the enhanced graphics, strongest LTE phone powered by Qualcomm's second-generation quad-core LG Electronics, which boasts the most power efficient for you soon find goes.

"Soon find goes" is what keeps us all wired up we'll see this for the holidays here. If anyone can translate from Korean, please chime in down below in the comments, although the main take is clear - specswise, we are waiting for one monster of a handset from LG.

Yes it is VERY good news. Man what if this turns out to be the new LG Nexus. Quad-core 28nm Krait S4 Pro with Adreno 320 with a True IPS 720p HD screen & 2GB of RAM all in a sexy Nexus branding by Google will be the dream sexy phone of 2012. Also I am so glad I understand Korean. lol

It would be nice, but I also doubt it. No Nexus device has ever debuted with the absolute highest specs around. Always respectable, but never the best.

Nexus devices are about software not hardware and its good that they used older hardware it makes sure that older phones aren't left out

LG made first dual core phone LG optimus 2x (Failed big time due to software issue and late upgrades) First 3d phone LG optimus 3d (Did well initiallybut due to buggy software and very late upgrade has poor impression - I have a lg thrill , i like it... but my galaxy s2 performs much better.) First announced quadcore phone LG optimus 4x hd.. goof as per reviews but people avoid buying it due to LG's late updates.. AND it came in market after one x and gs3.. so could not get the hype LG MUST DELIVER this time before any one else make this available immeditaly after iphone 5 or even before so they can get the hype they want.

LG should deliver, Qualcomm has consistently provided driver support for their devices to keep up with Android releases. I really hope they get it together, they already have enough experience to.

If this is the LG Nexus, I may just have to get the money to cancel my contract. Awesome. So. Awesome.

PA take a immdeiate note , this phone has beaten the benchmark of ipad 3 at gl benchmark site... make a quick articke of it now... there is a new champ... since iphone 5 will use same soc as ipad3 with lower clock speed its performance will be even lower..... SO ADERANO 320 IS NEW CHAMP.... engineers in Qualcomm are all indians .... yeah.... just like me..

http://www.anandtech.com/show/6185/qualcomms-apq8064-and-glbenchmark-25-mdpt-results Anandtech shows that it does beat SGX543MP4 in some benchmarks. If LG overclocks the GPU, it will definitely beat the iPad 3 A5x.

lg works really hard to offer new things which is very good.but not many are interested.1st dual core and 1st 2gb ram phones were by them only

26. g2a5b0e unregistered

Not completely true. Lg announced the first 2Gb RAM phone, the Lg Optimus LTE 2, first. But, Samsung released the first one first. The U.S. version of the Galaxy SIII.

This is great news! LG needs to get back in the game and Qualcomm is stepping it back up as well. I cant wait to see what this does running on Windows Phone 8 and tablets. This will also make the competition step it up even further!

Hopefully a 1080p display... lol, but 720p is enough. Anyways, that phone is just so beastly :O

Optimus G has already been leaked. Confirmed to have 4.7 inch 1280x720 display, probably same panel from the 4X HD.

Yes, AH-IPS is actually the best IPS panel on the market. Less power consumption, better color fidelity, higher brightness.

optimus 4x 2?

yup, LG trying to get some groundswell excitement. Just like I figured they would. :) Good. Hopefully this is a well built, quickly updated super phone. That would be very good for them. It would be even better if it was a nexus (doubt it though) or they at least put a promise in writing that they would have quick updates for 2 years. That would give them a lot of support.

Good news, if this comes out true, other manufacturers will compete to put the best processors in their phones and we will get more powerful devices!

Let's hope the change from 1 chip SoC/modem solution to 2 chip SoC and modem doesn't hurt battery life....

I don't care who it comes from but I want my next phone to have this same processor, 1080p display, 2 gig of ram and released on Verizon. I will worry about everything else later.

HTC apparently might have the phone for you. It's 5 inches though, so it's probably more like a Note competitor than a GS3 competitor.
