LG Nunclun chipsetLG has seemingly followed in the footsteps of Chinese chipset manufacturer MediaTek with the announcement of its own internally-designed octa-core processor, named Nunclun.  The first internally designed processor for the manufacturer features an eight-core chip with two banks of four cores each using ARM’s big.LITTLE configuration with four 1.5GHz Cortex A15s for heavy processing work and four 1.2GHz Cortex A7s for low-power work. The Nuclun chipset also supports LTE Cat. 6 with theoretical download speeds of up to 225Mbps.

To tie into the announcement of the chipset, LG has announced its first Android smartphone with the Nunclun processor in the LG G3 Screen, which is a step below the G3 flagship with a larger 5.9 inch display while shrinking the resolution to 1080p. The G3 Screen also features 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and supports microSD cards. The main camera captures at 13.1 megapixels and includes optical image stabilization, while the user-facing camera captures at 2.1 megapixels with a 3,000mAh battery and runs Android 4.4 KitKat with a high-volume 1w speaker. LG has not announced pricing or release details for the G3 Screen, nor has it announced if the Nunclun processor will be available to outside device manufacturers for purchase.
