LG bids adieu to Qualcomm, uses its own Nuclun processor inside new G3 Screen smartphone

LG has been relying on Qualcomm for providing application processors for its high-end smartphones since quite a long time now, but the new LG G3 Screen handset that has just been unveiled has a different story to tell. This LTE-A phone is fueled by the company’s first ever SoC which is called Nuclun.

This octa core chip has been made using the ARM big.LITTLE architecture, and it houses four 1.5GHz cores (ARM Cortex-A15) meant for advanced performance and four 1.2GHz cores (ARM Cortex-A7) for regular processing. LG has equipped this unit with support for next generation 4G LTE-A Cat.6 networks, which are capable of offering maximum download speeds of up to 225Mbps.

The vechile for the Nuclun is called the LG G3 Screen, and it has only been targeted towards the Korean market for now. Perhaps, the company wishes to use it as a testing ground for how the new processor is received before sending it across the ocean into other territories.

At 5.9 inches, the new G3 Screen’s display is slightly larger than that of the flagship, but its resolution is tied at 1080p full HD. It grabs 2GB worth of RAM and a 13MP OIS+ camera. A 3000mAh battery powers it from within, while the software department is headed by the Android 4.4 KitKat OS that has been sprinkled with LG’s very own UI enhancements.
