Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 quad-core CPU is making the rounds quite handsomely. Both the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4 have it and more to thank for their new found superpowers. It’s a beefy and urgently swift mobile processor that I have marveled over since I laid hands on the HTC One. With such an accomplished piece of tech, it’s no surprise others are clamoring to get a similar treatment. Next up, LG’s Optimus GK powered by the Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor.
The LG Optimus GK will use a 1.7ghz-flavored Snapdragon 600, same clock used on the HTC One and bit less than the 1.9ghz version used in the Samsung Galaxy S4. It will also enjoy a 1080p display resolution. The LG Optimus is definitely the reduced size sibling tot eh LG Optimus G. While that tablet-phone sports a 5.5″ screen the Optimus GK’s display looses half an inch but gains much in pixel density (441ppi) for its IPS panel type. Other features include expandable storage using a microSDHC slot, 13mp rear camera and a 2mp front-facing cam. The talk and playtime should last the duration with a 3100mAH battery.
Right now the Optimus GK is only available in Korea. Yet analysts speculate a more inclusive release down the road.
