LG hit a home run with the G3 flagship and the Korean company knows when it is on to a good thing. That's why just about every device the company has released since has paid more than a passing resemblance to the popular G3. LG's latest smartphone will continue that trend and has leaked online looking like an oversized and less stylized version of the G3.The device is called the LG Liger, and in case you did not know, a Liger is a cross between a lion and a tiger, so is this a beastly device? Probably not is the answer, but this handset should strike a nice balance for those looking for something in the upper echelons of the mid-range. The most important talking point about the Liger is that it is the first smartphone to feature LG's homemade processor, named Odin. The Odin processor is an octa-core chipset with four Cortex-A15 cores and four Cortex-A7 cores, and in this smartphone it has been coupled with 2GB of RAM. Of course, little is known about this chip, so performance and efficiency is still a mystery, but LG needs to have crafted something good if it wants to take its component aspirations further. Other specs include a 5.9-inch 1080p display, a 13 megapixel rear camera lens, and a 3,000 mAh juicer. Price and launch details are unknown at this point, but this looks to be a solidly spec'd device that will slot into LG?s ever growing arsenal of handsets.
