Snapdragon S4 Pro Shipping With LG Phone This Fall (LG Prayer Inside)

Snapdragon S4 Pro Shipping With LG Phone This Fall (LG Prayer Inside)


It’s been awhile since I have been really excited about an upcoming LG phone, and I’m happy to say that the Optimus G (the device many suspect will be LG’s Nexus device) has re-lit my fire (LOL) and grabbed my full attention. The rumored specs we reported on yesterday were already enough to seriously impress me, but Qualcomm’s announcement today showed me that LG is dead serious about creating a monster phone, as the insanely powerful Snapdragon S4 Pro is now officially confirmed to arrive in an LG superphone this fall.

While LG has not confirmed which device will ship with the S4 Pro, we’re extremely confident that the Optimus G will ship with this beastly chipset. The S4 Pro is a new and extremely powerful quad core chipset that easily bested Nvidia’s Tegra 3 and Samsung’s Exynos 4412 in benchmarks, and with the rumored 2GB RAM, 13MP camera, and 4.7 inch IPS LCS display that the Optimus G will reportedly ship with, the S4 Pro would quite literally be the icing on the proverbial cake. To put it simply, LG is building a monster of a phone, and it has Nexus written all over it.

Qualcomms official statement (via Phandroid):

"Qualcomm will supply the latest Snapdragon™ S4 Pro platform to LG, enabling LG’s new quad-core smartphone, which is currently in production with anticipated commercial availability in Korea in September and global rollout to follow. This smartphone will be the newest commercial and global device to offer a quad core CPU Snapdragon S4 processor along with 3G/LTE multi-mode capabilities, delivering a superior mobile experience for voice, web browsing, games, user interfaces and other graphics applications".

Interesting enough, the superphone will follow the newly announced MIUI phone (Mi2) by using Qualcomm’s APQ8064 quad core SOC, Adreno 320GPU, and an MDM9615 baseband chip. We’re looking at a pretty lethal dose of hardware here folks, and if LG beats the Mi2 phone to a release date (Mi2 scheduled for October release), it will be the world's first phone to feature the quad core APQ8064.

And now, let us pray that LG doesn't **ck this up:

“Dear mobile phone Gods. Please don’t let LG mess this up by throwing all this baller hardware in a really ugly square shaped monstrosity of a phone. Please let this be a Nexus device with a premium build quality, a sexy shape/design, and not full of bugs when it’s released. Please let this LG device be as awesome in real life as it is on paper. Please let the hype live up to the actual product.


What do you guys think of the Optimus G and it’s impressive hardware? Is this a device you could see yourself picking up?

  • I really loved my Nexus One as well. Was honestly one of the best phones I ever had.

  • I'm hoping for a HTC Nexus. I've had a Nexus One before my LG and I was really happy with it.

  • Holy hell! That's horrible bro!

    I've never owned an LG device, but I have often heard a lot of complaints about them.

    Sorry you had such a crappy experience with yours :-(

  • Yes!!! It is that bad. I've got the Optimus 3D running on their latest Gingerbread software which crippled the browser so it can only have 4 screens open at the same time and sometimes it just shuts down. With my first phone the capacitive buttons broke after a week it got fixed (took 2 weeks) after which it broke down after half a day. I then got it replaced by a phone which couldn't even make a phone call. That one got replaced by a phone which lasted relatively long.... 7 months after which the power button broke down. That phone got replaced by one which I have right now. I dread the day that my "VIP"-service is over after which it does not get replaced within 24 hours. So next month there's a possibility that I'm without a phone because my LG piece of crap broke down again.... when my financial allow me I'm going to buy another phone. preferably a Nexus except if it's an LG.

  • WOW. So bad???

  • I've got an LG right now. And nothing and I mean absolutely nothing can convince me to ever buy another LG phone again. It's not just the software which sucks it's also their crappy hardware. I've had four phones in 9 months each of them broke down.
    LG never again!!!

  • I feel the same. Maybe they can make a comeback!

  • My prayers are with you. I always had a LG phone before my first Motorola Droid. LG phones are very good and hopefully the SnapDragon will be over the top.

  • the S4 and S4 Pro aren't the same i know right? :)

    Xiaomi has 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor
    MIUI (Base Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS)

  • IMO Think if all the prayers are answered . we'd be looking at 4x as the Chinese phone price tag!

  • Seems so! I thought the MIUI phone would ship with Snapdragon S4, not the Pro version. But it seems it will!

    I'll double check :-D

  • wow, the same processor to Xiaomi X2 Quadcore right?

    I think it's nexus :p
