LG to use a homemade octo-core chip named Odin for its H2 flagship Optimus G2

LG is allegedly going to use its first homebrew processor, codenamed Odin, in the upcoming Optimus G2 flagship, which is poised to be its battle horse for the holiday season.
Odin resembles very much Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa design, as it will reportedly use eight cores - four 1.8 GHz Cortex-A15 and four frugal 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 - designed in an ARM big.LITTLE architecture to provide superior performance/power consumption ratio.
LG has collaborated with TSMC for the 28nm foundry process, we were tipped. Creating your own SoC from scratch is a bold undertaking, but we've no doubts that LG's engineering capacity is able to pull it off, and can't wait to benchmark an eventual Optimus G2 with the Odin chipset.
- Display 5.2" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2.1 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, Quad-core, 2260 MHz
- Storage 32 GB
- Battery 3000 mAh(21.3h 3G talk time)

I think by now It's obvious that the standard ARM A15 core has some power consumption / thermal properties that don't go well with smartphone implementation. That's why Apple went to develop a custom Swift ARM reference, and other manufacturers are following

Heard of krait core? Everyone is following Qualcomm here! I think this is right time for Intel to make a move with their best x86 atom core!

well...I just hope that it will be powerfull enought to beat Qualcomms snapdragon 800, because if it is not then there is no sense in making it because LG and qualcomm have great relationship and I dont see any reason to spoil that...
