A lot of gun power

LG has announced that it has partnered up with Qualcomm for its next G-series smartphone. The successor of the LG Optimus G will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 chipset.

According to LG's announcement, the Snapdragon 800 should bring up to 75 percent better performance when compared to Snapdragon S4 Pro while Adreno 330 GPU should bring more than two times better performance for compute applications over the Adreno 320 GPU. In case you missed it earlier, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 chipset features quad-core Krait 400 CPU part paired up with the aformentioned Adrno 330 GPU.

Unfortunately, LG was not keen on revealing any other details regarding the Optimus G successor but hopefully more details will show up pretty soon. Qualcomm did promise to ship Snapdragon 800 SoCs in the first half of 2013 and an announcement in the last two weeks of this deadline are still playing it safe.
