The LG G4 is said to be a game changer for the company by multiple reports, but new information suggests that the phone could fall short compared to the competition. A device which is said to be the flagship in question recently passed through benchmark website GFXBench leaving behind a trail of hardware information.
LG G4 (F500x) is what was shown on the website, but sadly, the listing has been pulled which adds all the more creditability to it being the real deal. GFXBench noted that the device would come with Android 5.1 Lollipop and be powered by a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 808 processor with Adreno 418 graphics.
The processor of choice here is certainly now what was expected, mainly since most new flagships come with the beefier Snapdragon 810. There are a few possibilities behind the use of the Snapdragon 808 chip. Firstly, many OEMs have been facing heating issues with the SOC and this could be one of the reasons. Then there’s the possibility of the smartphone not actually being the flagship, but a variant of it.
PhoneArena weighs in that the Snapdragon 810 could be destined for the G4 Note which would put the phone in question just behind the stylus-equipped model. We’ve already had a good look at the phone’s design since press renders (see above) and even live shots (embedded below) of the handset have been doing the rounds online.
Latest LG G4 specs:
