More and more smartphone manufacturers are trying to reduce their dependence on production Qualcomm, MediaTek, and Intel. The greatest successes in this direction have Samsung and Huawei. Not so long ago it became known that on his own chipset works and Chinese Xiaomi. Now informants told of a powerful new hardware platform LG NUCLUN 2.
And, judging by the results of its tests in the benchmark Geekbench, the hardware platform is easily able to circumvent the top chipset Exynos 7420, gaining 1796 points in single-core and 5392 points in multi-core test mode, while Samsung platform in the same benchmark gets “only” 1486 and 4970 points, respectively.
As can be seen from the screenshot, the new chipset LG NUCLUN 2 is built on 16-nm process technology from TSMC and FinFET includes four core Cortex-A72 at a clock frequency of 2.1 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53, working at a frequency of 1.5 GHz. It is quite possible that this chipset has been set in a mysterious gadget LG, which recently won more 85000 points in the benchmark AnTuTu.
It is expected that mass production LG NUCLUN 2 will start in the second half of 2016 and the first smartphone based on it, it is likely to become the flagship LG G5.
