Hot off the heels of the Snapdragon 800 benchmarking event in San Francisco, LG has dropped a press release by noting that its next G series smartphone will include the aforementioned SoC. Although LG didn't call it out explicitly, this is undoubtedly the Optimus G2 which we've heard rumblings about, successor to last year's Optimus G which included Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064. 

LG mentions 75 percent better performance and tight integration with Snapdragon 800 in its future G series smartphone. No word on availability or when the announcement will drop, but I expect that will come later this fall.

    Did you mean this to be a timeline post? And wasn't the APQ8064 not a Snapdragon 600 part since it uses Krait 200 cores? Reply

    Yup, I noticed the same thing. It should read S4 Pro Reply

    No Tegra 4 LG?? Come on???
    Well, then I hope that HTC launch a smartphone with Tegra 4 or will I have to depend on the Chinese Huawei (if is that it will manufacture ZTE because I do not trust).

    Why would you want a Tegra 4 when you can have a Snapdragon 800? Reply

    Snapdragon 800 is the fastest ARM processor available for Android. Why would you want a Tegra 4? Reply

    Some of the benchmarks I saw yesterday showed Tegra 4 beating the Snapdragon 800. Reply

    The Geekbench bench on Ars? The CPU part where Tegra 4 beat the S800 by up to 5%? OK, but what about the power? Qualcomm claims it's on par with the S600, nVidia doesn't say a word. If it was good they would yell about it... Reply
