The system dump for LG's next G series flagship smartphone has been leaked revealing a few of the hardware specifications of the smartphone.
Snapdragon 810 chipset
Qualcomm was reported to have been facing difficulties with the mass production of its new Snapdragon 810 system-on-chip (SoC) chipset, due to an overheating issue. It seems the issue is related to Snapdragon 810's Cortex-A57 cores, which overheat whenever they exceed frequencies from 1.2-1.4GHz. This will reportedly delay the mass production of the chipset by another three months and hence the chipset might not be available until the middle of the second quarter this year.
While there is a fresh rumour suggesting that Samsung Electronics will dump the Snapdragon 810 processor for use in its upcoming Galaxy S6 smartphone in favour of its own Exynos chip, LG will still stick to the Snapdragon chipset.
According to the new disclosure, the LG G4 will use the Snapdragon 810 quad-core processor. The source further said the LG G4 will have Quad HD display with screen size at 5.3in, which already surfaced in a previous leak. Besides, there will be 3GB RAM.
The system dump hints at a 16 megapixel rear-camera, as there is mention of 5312 x 2988 pixels in the file. This would be a major upgrade over the 13 megapixel camera of LG G3.
LG might unveil the LG G4 at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona.
