For quite sometime, we have been hearing about a new device codenamed LG Liger with the model number LG-F490L. Now, it appears like LG is prepping this new smartphone with its Odin chip. As per a tweet from @upleaks that has surfaced on Monday, the handset bearing the model number LG-F490L will become the first device to use the idon chipset.
The LG Odin chipset is said to have entered mass production in April. Rumors claim that this processor will be suitable for the high-end devices suggesting that LG has come up with a better processor this time.
Now, coming to the LG-F490L, there are widespread speculations that this device could be the alleged LG G3 Prime that is an upgraded variant of LG G3. But, as the device is tipped to arrive with Snapdragon 805 SoC, there are claims that this new phone could be the sequel to the curved phone – LG G Flex.
The LG Odin is believed to come in two configurations – octa-core and quad-core support. The octa-core version will be using the ARM architecture and arrive with quad-core 2 GHz Cortex A15 and quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex A7 processors for light and intense tasks paired with Mali T604 GPU.
Anyways, we need to wait until LG officially reveals something regarding the alleged LG G Flex successor.
