Exclusive: LG Liger F490L specifications and benchmark scores revealed, features octa-core NUCLUN processor

By October 23rd, 2014 AT 5:41 PM

The first smartphone based on LG’s own mobile processor could be the Android 4.4.4 KitKat based LG Liger F490L. The first report about the LG Liger F490L came from @upleaks, back in June. It has been known from long that LG was working on its own Odin range of mobile processors. The processor used in the F490L Liger combines four ARM Cortex A15 CPU cores clocked at 1.5GHz and four ARM Cortex A7 CPU cores clocked at 1.5GHz. It features a GPU from Imagination Technologies but its exact model is not known yet.

When we dug deeper, we were able to find GeekBench scores for the LG Liger F490L. Just for the sake of comparison, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor equipped LG G3 scored 2,225 points in the multicore test, while the LG F490L with a NUCLUN processor scored 2,609 points. It is a mid-range SoC as its single-core performance is weaker when compared to the Snapdragon 801.

A brochure of the device was leaked in South Korea, revealing its hardware specifications. The LG Liger F490L is equipped with a 5.9-inch 1080p display, an octa-core LG NUCLUN processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. As per the image, it looks very similar to that of the LG G3’s design with power and volume buttons on the back but, it will most probably be a mid-range phablet rather than a high-end device. It features a 13-megapixel camera with OIS, laser autofocus, and LED flash.

I hope these phones will push down the sales of the third class company handsets.


I think it will be priced around 28k
