Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 to power LG "G" series phones, the OEM's successor to the Optimus line
The Qualcomm Snapdragon offers 75 percent better performance than the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and the Adreno 330 GPU offers twice the performance as the Adreno 320 does. Video capture and playback is available in Ultra HD, which has four times the density as 1080p resolution. It also supports higher display resolutions up to 2560 x 2048 and includes HD multichannel audio with DTS-HD and Dolby Digital Plus.
As we told you the other day, at the time LG was considering removing the Optimus name from its high-end models and planned on using the title for its low to mid-range handsets. Based on the press release, it appears that the top-shelf models from the manufacturer will now be known as the "G" series. This makes sense considering that its last two Android flagship models were the LG Optimus G and the LG Optimus G Pro. An LG Optimus G2 is also expected to come to market later this year, but could have a different title by the time it is released.
