LG making smartphone with quad-core processor, 10 megapixel camera

PanARMENIAN.Net - LG has confirmed that it is currently developing a new smartphone that will be its first to be powered by a quad-core processor and feature a camera with a resolution of more than 10 megapixels, The Next Web reports.

LG’s first quad-core based device - the Optimus 4X LTE - was released this month, but it is planning a follow-up that will have a camera that beats the Optimus’ 8 megapixel effort – which PC World calls out as being weaker than that of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One series.

According to a report from The Chosunilbo, none other than LG Electronics chairman Koo Bon-moo has had direct input into the planning and development of the as-yet-unnamed device due to his dissatisfaction that the mobile-making arm of company has not taken full advantage of technology produced by fellow LG subsidiaries.

Parts from LG Display, LG Chem and LG Innotek are used by a range of players within the smartphone industry - including Apple - yet, last year, the LG Electronics chief is said to have pointed out that the firm is not ‘making enough’ of the technology.

LG recently claimed to have sold 3 million LTE-compatible devices worldwide, and it says that it is focusing on extending the sale of said LTE range to 10 new countries, taking the total to 20 worldwide.
