To be the heart of Optimus G II


Although we are still far away from the launch of the Optimus G II rumored for next fall, Korea Times reports that LG is already working on an octa-core chipset called Odin that should be a main part of the next-gen Optimus G.

It is, of course, a logical move and LG will probably follow the footsteps of Samsung and Huawei by making its own in-house chipset. LG apparently already plans to outsource the manufacturing to TSMC and might end up to be quite similar to Samsung's big.LITTLE architecture by combining four low-power Cortex-A7 cores with four Cortex-A15 cores.

The Odin is apparently heading for smartphones but might be easily used for future tablets as well, a part of the market that LG has not been focusing on.
