LG, one of Korea’s major consumer electronics and technology giants, is entering the smartphone chip game with Nuclun, its first mobile application processor.
Pronounced “NOO-klun,” the chip will make its first appearance this week when LG releases the G3 Screen, a smartphone for the Korean market. The chip’s eight-core processor was designed using ARM big.Little technology and supports 4G LTE-A Cat.6 and a maximum download speed of up to 225 Mbps.
The G3 Screen will have similar design, camera, and user experience features as the LG G3 phone. It will sport a 5.9-inch full HD IPS display, 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, and a 13 megapixel rear camera and 2.1 megapixel front camera, and it will run on Android 4.4 Kitkat.
