LG's Odin chip to be available in four- and eight-core variants

LG is set to start making its own chips and it’s likely that some of the company’s next year devices will use the home-grown technology, rather than Qualcomm-made gear.

It is said that LG’s Odin chip series will debut next year, offering four or eight cores depending on the variant. Unfortunately though, we don’t have all details like the speed results, or how these processors compare to those made by Qualcomm and NVIDIA. Nevertheless, we’re sure LG wants to deliver great user experiences. It is said that Odin chips will run at up to 2.2GHz, boasting ARM Mali-T604 or Mali-T760 graphics.

The Korean company plans to rely on Odin product not just for smartphones and tablets, but also for smart TVs.

The story goes un suggesting that LG is already testing out its SoC and that Taiwan’s TSMC will be the one making them. We’ll be following this story closely, getting back to you when new information emerges…
