A new era is coming to the smartphone world, one where devices are powered by Qualcomm’s best processor so far, the Snapdragon 800. The SoC has been developed for quite a while now, but we had to wait a rather long time until we got to see it power a handset. After the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A, it seems that LG is also getting ready to launch a smartphone underpinned by the beast.
Even though we don’t know much about it, the LG-F320 has been spotted in an AnTuTu benchmark which was firstly posted by GSM Insider, sporting an impressive Snapdragon 800 CPU clocked at 2.3 GHz. It looks like this baby did pretty good, as according to the AnTuTu benchmark, the LG-F320 managed to score 32,002 on the test, which is awesome compared to the Galaxy S4 LTE-A which scored 31,491. However, it doesn’t match the Sony Xperia Ultra which obtained a score of 34,758.
You may think that with this score the LG-F32o will be the king of everything. Nevertheless, this kind of benchmark scores vary a lot. In fact, it won’t be a noticeable difference between the handsets powered by the Snapdragon 800 when it comes to real world usage.
What’s clear is that the LG-F320 is definitely a fast smartphone, but the real question is what device are we talking about here, because F320 is certainly just a codename. Well, we don’t know the answer as we don’t have enough information to work with, though theorizing is not forbidden.
Even though we can’t be sure, we might be talking about the LG G2. The timing would be perfect as the smartphone is expected to be unveiled sometime at the beginning of August.
In case this is indeed the LG G2, according to previous reports it will come with a 1080p display, a 13 megapixel primary camera, volume rocker buttons on its back and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box.
Although the LF G2 seems more likely, there is always the possibility that the F320 might actually be the Nexus 5, but this is a long shot. The sure thing is that no matter how the device will be called, it does pack some serious power and should be acknowledged as a worthy adversary for any of the high-end smartphones currently on market.
