LG has confirmed that the LG G3 Cat 6 will start shipping July 25th in South Korea, armed with an improved Snapdragon 805 CPU.
According to AnTuTu, the octa-core Exynos 5433 SoC scores more than 40,000 points in the benchmark test, compared with the Snapdragon 805′s 37,780 points.
Samsung just made the long rumored Galaxy S5 LTE-A official in South Korea. The Galaxy S5 LTE (which appears to be the long rumored S5 Prime) is the first device on the market to pack a Snapdragon 805 processor, rocking Krait 450 cores, 3GB of RAM, and impressive 225Mbps LTE-Advanced network speeds.
AnandTech’s Anand Lal Shimpi ran a suite of benchmarks on a Mobile Development Platform tablet provided by Qualcomm to see exactly what kind of performance the Snapdragon 805 brings to the game. His conclusions? It’s mostly about the next-gen graphics.
The Mobile Development Platform Tablet (MDP/T) is meant to offer app and game developers early access to the processor that will power most high-end Android devices coming in the second part of the year.
By combining three distinct spectrum bands, two of Korea’s largest carriers will be able to offer LTE download speeds of up to 300Mbps by the end of the year.
The first Snapdragon 805 devices are rumored to launch as soon as May, although no Android smartphone or tablet maker has announced such devices yet.
