Monster quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 chip first global appearance will be on an LG smartphone
posted by Victor H. / Aug 23, 2012, 2:31 AM
Earlier, Chinese Xiaomi announced the Mi-Two with the same S4 Pro chip inside for a mind-boggling price of only $310, but that phone is expected to be sold only in China.
To give you a better idea of how much faster the quad-core S4 Pro is than the current crop of chips, lets just mention that out of the box, Qualcomm’s mobile development platform for it scored around 7,700 on Quadrant, more than twice better than the Tegra 3-based Nexus 7. Here is Qualcomm’s official announcement:
It has also been confirmed that along with the Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-core processor, the phone will come with Qualcomm’s multi-mode LTE-enabled MDM9615 baseband.
Could this upcoming LG smartphone be the LG Optimus G we heard about recently? Now, that would truly be a monster phone, if rumors come true. So far, we’ve heard that it’d come with Android on board, a 4.7-inch TrueHD screen, 2GB of RAM and a mind-boggling 13-megapixel camera. We've also seen the mysterious LG E970 running on the S4 Pro with Adreno 320 graphics and it was the first device to beat the iPad in terms of graphical performance. If all those happen to be one device, it could easily become one of the hottest phones this fall - stay tuned.

I think there is a bit too much bashing on LG. I can happily admit that they are not the best ones with software updates, but let's wait and see what they bring before deciding if the phone is good or not. (And not, I was not the one giving thumbs down to all the LG bashers)

In your faces, Remixfa and Kingkurogii. "Quadcore s4 global availability - q2-q4 2013" - Remixfa Finally got through your head how much of an ignorant fool you are regarding these matters?

darac, I know remixfa & kingkurogii are both wrong, but we don't have to call people names. lol remixfa was only citing what WAS put out in certain cites. Qualcomm changed its course of action & released these monster chips sooner than their own timelines suggested. I think you & I were the only ones who knew the quad-core S4 Pro would be out globally BEFORE Q4. Well remixfa I guess we were right in our timelines. This quad-core S4 Pro looks to make it to the U.S. BEFORE your Exynos 5 & your OMAP 5. So let’s say this quad-core S4 Pro is @ a modest 1.7GHz (they are talking 2.5GHz) then it will indeed be just as powerful as your Exynos 5 or OMAP 5. I am willing to say EVEN more powerful. Remember I was telling you that Qualcomm was WAY ahead in terms of development compared to Samsung's Exynos 5 & Texas Instruments OMAP 5? 2012 the year the sleeping giant Qualcomm woke up & literally took the market to be TOP in the world in terms of PURE power, performance & overall usability. I guarantee this wave will keep going in 2013. I always knew this was going to happen. I can admit the last 2 years or so Qualcomm got caught sleeping but that rude awakening was what they needed to produce the wonderfully versatile & VERY powerful Krait S4 dual, & quad-core Pro SoC's.

you guys are hilarious. There isnt a single thing here that says definitively that the phone is happening soon. That whole last bit is pure speculation on the part of the writer. You should have learned by now to not celebrate until something actually happens. When LG publishes and OFFICIAL launch date you can get happy. When they actually deliver on that launch date, then we can talk about who was right or wrong. Dont put your cart before the horse. Do you need to be reminded of how many phones were pushed back from advertised launch dates... much less how often speculated/rumored launch dates are WRONG??? seriously? The benchmark ranking should be like this when its all said and done E5 quad >Pro quad >/= E5> Pro> E4 quad. and no one "knows" anything. We are all just making our best guess from the information available... unless you have secret sources you would like to share with the group. Darac, grow up, seriously.
