LG licenses ARM architecture

Written by


When we grow up, we’ll be just like Samsung
LG has apparently struck a deal to license ARM chipsets, or to be more precise the outfit has bought rights to build upcoming A15 processors.

In light of its increasing presence in the smartphone market, the move was largely expected, but it might raise a few eyebrows at Nvidia. LG was the first phone maker to launch a Tegra 2 phone and it is still expected to use Nvidia chipsets in upcoming Optimus-series products. However, A15 production is slated to start in late 2012 and LG will probably opt for in-house processors instead.
