LG has already confirmed their next-gen flagship smartphone will be powered by the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, and now we might finally be seeing our first device benchmarks. Rumored to be called the LG G2, a device listed as the LG-F320 has been spotted running a few benchmarks complete with the Snapdragon 800, and scores quite high in the popular AnTuTu benchmark.
At this point we’re pretty much sure that LG’s August 7th event will be for their new flagship smartphone to take on the Galaxy Note III, new iPhone, and anything else coming soon from Motorola. Rumors have pointed to the new Optimus G2, and we’ve even seen a few hardware pictures leak of said device as well.
With a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm’s 2.3 GHz quad-core under the hood, backside touch controls, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean this is a hotly anticipated device. While we can’t be certain the benchmark result below is the new G2, it is certainly a new LG smartphone that will be plenty fast. Maybe this will also be the Nexus 5? We’ll see.
Our own results with the Snapdragon 800 had us coming away quite impressed, not to mention the recently announced Galaxy S 4 LTE-Advanced with its Snapdragon scored nearly 32,000 in AnTuTu. We’ve also seen Sony’s new Xperia Z Ultra packing the same processor, and surely the second half of 2013 will be filled with high-powered quad-core smartphones.
Until we gather more details we’re just left wondering what exactly this benchmark result is, and they can also be faked, but it’s already confirmed LG’s next phone will have the 800. So now all we need to know is what, when, and where can we buy one. We’ll be live on August 7th for all the LG details too, so stick around.
