LG-Sign-2

LG will soon try its luck at designing mobile processors in the near future, a company spokesperson recently confirmed. The South Korea-based electronics maker will reportedly contract Taiwan-based TSMC to manufacture its processors. According to The Korea Herald, the company’s in-house chips could possibly show up in LG’s rumored G3 smartphone, which the outfit hopes to announce in the next couple of months.

As for the chip’s build, it’s reportedly based on four 2.2GHz Cortex-A15 cores and four Cortex-A7 cores clocked at 1.7GHz. By entering the chip making business, LG will further its rivalry with Samsung, which currently produces and manufactures its own Exynos processors line. In addition to LG handsets, the company’s new chips could possibly be used in other third-party devices.
