LG and Samsung share plenty of similarities, and beyond their smartphone businesses too. Following in Samsung's footsteps last year, LG decided to create its own processor division, debuting its own NUCLUN chipset. That processor only made in LG's own South Korea, but the next NUCLUN silicon is likely to have wider appeal as it will be a full flagship processor.The NUCLUN 2 will be positioned as a competitor to Qualcomm's flagship (and upcoming) Snapdragon 820 and Samsung's current Exynos 7420, the chipset found in the recently announced Galaxy Note 5. Leaks suggest that LG's new chipset will be octa-core with four Cortex-A72 ones running at 2.1GHz and another four running at 1.5GHz. Some benchmark scores attributed to the NUCLUN 2 suggest that it is more powerful than Samsung?s Exynos 7420. On Geekbench the chip scored 392 points in multi-threaded mode and 1796 points in single-threaded mode, which is more than the 4970 and 1486 points in multi- and single-threaded modes scored by the Exynos.
