LG G4 allegedly photographed, Snapdragon 808 inside

17 April, 2015
The photo is tightly cropped and dark, it's hard to tell if it's actually the LG G4 or not.

The values in CPU-Z a 'live', they change constantly according to the current clock, so the values were busy changing while the photo was being taken (i.e. while the shutter was open), hence the ghost look.

poor LG, lack of inovation...
This years, LG is super Faill..
Snapdragon too..

Well guys what I think there is no such 808 ,BECAUSE we NEVER heard it B4 and never mentioned b4 releasing 810 fail..
What in reality 808 is, is 810 fail underclocked to slowe freq. NOT to overheat..
And then it is very easy rename chip to 808 whit right software..
Even LG is NOT stupid like samsung they didn't use 810 ..

Ayush01, 17 Apr 2015Looks like there will be two G4 models. 1)A Phablet with SD810 ... moreApple ruined the market with 64-bit branding. It's as band as x86 now the ARM coars are so bloated. Down to two coars for low power like Intel. Meh, no excuse for the interface to lag on last gen so if they do it right it should be fine. If they do it right.

Looks like there will be two G4 models.
1)A Phablet with SD810 and stylus
2)A smartphone with SD808

Knowing the fact that SD 810 overheats its probably a better idea to go for SD 808.And I don't understand this spec race at all.My HTC One with SD 801 performs on par with the new One M9 if not better.Whats the use of adding more power hungry cores then?.Instead they should improve the battery,UI and the camera.No matter how beefier the specs becomes smartphones can't and won't surpass consoles and neither can it surpass personal computers. These OEMs are just fuelling people's greed more and more.

But also way l... moreWith much less thermal throttling, the CPU performance might actually be quite close to SD 810 for most real life scenarios. Furthermore, there are not many apps which would require firing up all the A57 cores in real life. For example games rarely have more than two parallel threads which require a high performance CPU. The only real shortcoming of the SD 808 is the GPU.

That said, it probably won't be much faster than SD 805, either. The GPU is slower, so gaming performance might not be any faster in practice.

If it does ship with 808 it will be cheap. Cheap cheap.

Good!! Better than over heating 810

Exynos rules!

AnonD-322352, 17 Apr 2015I thought they were going for their own home-bred SoC? Anyway... morehome-bred SoCs can't compete with Qualcomm in the graphics area. The 808 is probably in line with Samsung's custom graphically.

I think someone trying to sabotage the G4 here proably a samsung fan im 100 percebt sure this aint the G4

anyone else notice on "cpu 0" to "cpu 3" that there is ghosting / graphical glitches on the clock speed?? this concerns me to the validity of this actual picture or even the device in hand here...

If you save the pic and zoom in on it the compare to the other renders ull see this deff not the G4

  • ExtraSlick

Will not buy. SD808 is a joke compared to SD810. SD808 is best suited for low mid-range phones competing with MediaTek MT6752/6753/6795 etc, not flagships. It was bad enough that the G4 couldn't ship with the SD820, and now this horrific downgrade.

I think it's a marketing strategy - later they might release a higher G4 model with the SD810?

What a bummer.

I thought they were going for their own home-bred SoC?

Anyways, I'm not sure how this SoC performs on the QHD res. The GPU in 808 is weaker than the GPU in 805. :\

  • Cenas

This SoC would kick ass if only it had an Adreno 430. The way it is, it will stutter like hell with the QHD resolution.

  • C.wizzle

This dont look like the g4 even though i can barely see it.
