LG’s G Pro 3 will be powered by its own Odin chip

LG hit its flagship stride with the G3 that was released a few months ago, but the company has been building solidly to the point of having arguably the best handset available for about two years. The company’s streak started to take shape with the original G Pro back in 2013 and was followed by the G2 then the G Pro 2 and ultimately of course the G3. Now the phablet range that got it all started is going to kick things up a notch again, with reports that the upcoming G Pro 3 will be a beast of a smartphone.

Previous rumors about LG thinking making a processor for its mobile phones had surfaced earlier this year, but we didn’t think that the company would choose the LG G Pro 3 as the first device to sport the company’s own Odin CPU. Samsung has already seen the opportunity in manufacturing your own CPUs and has already released the Exynos CPU model you can find on one of the versions of the Galaxy Note 4. LG seems to be tagging along and the OEM has finally realized that it has the ability to build a phone almost from scratch and make it exceptional. Not that the prized LG G3 wasn’t impressive enough when it launched. We don’t know what the Odin CPU will look like, but sources say that the CPU will be present on the new LG G Pro 3 in the first quarter of 2014. An exact release date hasn’t been disclosed, but the G Pro 2 is asking for a successor and the timing would be appropriate. LG’s processors will be manufactured by Taiwan based foundry TSMC and have probably been in production since May 2014.
