We have heard about LG’s Odin chipset for a long time now but there hasn’t been much to show for, we’re still waiting for that chipset to be used in a consumer device. We recently reported that LG’s Odin powered smartphone may be unveiled as soon as this month. A picture of the LG F490L Liger has surfaced online and this particular device is believed to be the lucky one that’s powered by LG’s homegrown chipset.
The picture is actually of a brochure for this device and it lists purported specifications as well. If they are to be believed then the device, codenamed Liger, will feature a 5.9-inch full HD IPS display, LG’s octacore NUCLUN processor with 2GB RAM and 32GB onboard storage as well as a 3,000mAh battery.
From a design standpoint the Liger actually looks quite similar to the LG G3 though its bigger because the display size is larger. Obviously it doesn’t have the Quad HD display of the LG G3.
Back in August, LG filed a trademark for NUCLUN, so there’s ample reason to believe that this is the moniker that the company has given to its Odin chipset. NUCLUN-powered Liger is believed to tout a 13 megapixel rear camera with laser auto-focus and a 2.1 megapixel front shooter.
No word as yet on when this device would show up across major international markets though it may debut first in South Korea on the LG U+ network.
