LG’s next Optimus G phone powered by Snapdragon 800 CPU

optimusgproYou know you must have a pretty fast CPU on your hands when your customers are lining up to tell their customers they’ll be using it.

That’s the case with a press release coming out from LG today claiming its next-generation Optimus G phone will feature Qualcomm’s super-quick Snapdragon 800 quad-core SoC CPU.

The Korean phone maker says the Snapdragon 800 will deliver 75% more performance than the Snapdragon S4 Pro, which incidentally, was the chip inside the original Optimus G.

While no release dates have been mentioned in regards to the new phone, LG hasn’t been backwards in talking about some of its new features.

The Snapdragon 800 CPU is said to deliver twice the gaming performance, thanks largely to the improved Adreno 330 GPU core, compared with the previous-generation (and still plenty fast ) Adreno 320 GPU.

The company is also claiming the phone will offer ‘video capture, playback and display in Ultra HD format, four times higher density than 1080p HD’.

And if you needed more entertainment value, it’ll support HD multi-channel audio in DTS-HD and Dolby Digital Plus, along with video output resolutions of up to 2560×2048-pixels through what we believe will be its MHL (Mobile High-definition Link) port.

While that all sounds great, the one feature LG doesn’t mention is battery life – with so much performance on hand, it’ll be interesting to see just how big the Lithium-ion battery will have to be to keep the phone powered for a reasonable length of time. With many larger-screened phones now including batteries beyond 3000mAh in capacity, it’s quite likely the follow-up Optimus G may have to follow suit.

We’ll wait and see.
