Qualcomm and LG have confirmed that the next LG Optimus G smartphones will use the Snapdragon 800 processor, a quad-core chipset built to blow everything else out of the water. Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 800 in January and promised that the mobile chipset would deliver sizable upgrades in both battery life and performance. The quad-core processor can reach up to 2.3 GHz on each core, use less power to complete tasks and increase battery life by 75 percent, enable faster LTE speeds, greatly expand the UltraHD display capabilities, and double the graphics performance seen in previous Snapdragon products.
LG has not released specific details on its next Optimus G smartphone, but the device has a very high-ceiling that it can stay under and still be very impressive considering the Snapdragon 800's maximum capabilities. More details should appear in a few months as LG prepares to introduce the Optimus follow-up.source: Qualcomm
