The LG G4 passes through GFXBench, reveals Snapdragon 808 heart, 16MP camera, and more

A device named LG G4 (F500x) has been caught passing through GFXBench's suite, spilling the beans in terms of hardware specifications. According to the details the benchmark cared to note down, the LG G4 will have a 5.5-inch display, touting a resolution of 1440 x 2560 (534 pixels per inch), and run on, get this, a Snapdragon 808 silicon from Qualcomm. We're talking about a 64-bit, hexa-core (4+2) processor here, with four ARM Cortex-A53 and two ARM Cortex-A57 cores plus an Adreno 418 GPU. As you can imagine, the Snapdragon 808 sits lower on the food chain than the octa-core Snapdragon 810 and its superior Adreno 430 graphics, but more on that later. The rest of the specs include 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (no mention of a microSD slot), a 16-megapixel main camera capable of 4K UHD video capture, and a generous, 8-megapixel selfie snapper.
Going back to the rather dumbfounding case of the Snapdragon 808 processor, we have two theories to offer. One, it could be that the Snapdragon 810's oft-cited heating problems could have forced LG to go for the ostensibly weaker Snapdragon 808, or two – this could be a lower-end model. Indeed, we've already heard rumors that the LG G4 will not actually be the company's top-of-the-line device this year – a position that will supposedly be taken up by the LG G4 Note, which could carry the industry's hottest whenever it gets released. Alternatively, this could be some sort of error, as unlikely as that would be.
Thanks for the tip, Davide!

SD 808? Interesting.....

I'm extremely happy they went with the 808. No overheating. And 2+4 is theoritically the optimal solution for a big.LITTLE SoC.

I am extremely happy and very satisfied already if LG indeed uses the 808 and not the problematic 810. 808 is still a beast and there is no huge margin in processing power compared to 810. In fact, if i were to choose between the cooler and more efficient 808 giving a longer lasting battery and no throttling in graphic-intensive games, i would prefer 808 over 810 any day, at least until 815 is released at the end of the year. 815 will probably appear in the Nexus 2015 at around December release, including the G4 Note. But 808 is definitely the wise choice for 2015, given the overheating issues that plagues the 810.

I would say its more funny that's there might not be a sd card now all the folks crying about Samsung's galaxy s6 not having sd card can cry about this with a smaller processor gs6 ftw 2015

810 is flawed otherwise they won't go with 808

I guess 808 is a wise choice. Hexa core, so a bit more power efficient than octa core. But does this also confirm that the 810 in the G Flex 2 really has issue that LG can't solve?

Throttled 810 = 808 .should go with exynos ... I am curious about gpu performance

I agree totally! The 808 is more than enough and then some. Hope there will be more 808 phones to come. Cheaper than the 810 phones too, I hope.
