Apart from manufacturing the smartphones, Huawei and Samsung also produces mobile chipsets. While almost half of the Huawei smartphones come with their own chipsets, Now Samsung is also using Exynos chipsets on most of their smartphone than ever. In Mid-November, there are rumors few that LG and Sony are looking to manufacture their own processors in 2016. However, Sony had clarified that there are no plans for manufacturing in-house processors, but LG hasn’t commented over this.

As per the latest rumors, LG had already started working on their own chipset called Nuclun 2 that has the power to compete against the likes of recently announced flagship chipsets from Huawei and Samsung. It will build on a 16nm FinFET technology process that is also used for Huawei’s Kirin 950 octa-core processor. On the other hand, Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 used a 14nm FinFET process.

The LG Nuclun 2 comes with an octa-core processor based on big.LITTLE architecture. The CPU has two clusters with four cores of Cortex-A72 clocked at 2.1GHz, and the other four cores are of Cortex-A53 clocked at 1.5GHz. It is rumored to supports Cat.10 LTE that offers speeds up to 450 Mbps. By using in-house processors also helps in cutting down the manufacturing costs of the smartphone.

According to the unofficial reports, the Nuclun 2 gave superior results than Kirin 950 processor. On GeekBench, it has scored 1,980 points on single-core and 6,689 points on multi-cores while the Kirin 950 is limited to 1,710 and 6,245 points on single-core and multi-cores respectively. It will be not the available till the second half of 2016 and will be powering the successor of LG V10 that will be launched by the end of 2016.

The leakster suggests the more-powerful Nuclun 3 will be developed to power the next-gen smartphone in the LG’s flagship G-series. If the rumors are to be believed, the Nuclun 3 will be competing on par with Samsung’s Exynos 8890 processor. The LG G5 will launch in the first half of 2015 and is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor. Since nothing is confirmed by the company, take this with a pinch of salt until there is a confirmed source backing this information.
