Lately, we’re seeing that more and more producers from the tech market are willing to develop their own processor in order to use them on future devices. On this segment we also have LG, a South-Korean producer that last year unveiled the Nuclun processor, a chip that wasn’t so great as it was rumored at first.


After a year since this launch, we get to know today that LG is currently working on a successor called NUCLUN 2, a chip that is supposed to fight from equal to equal with the Exynos 7420 chip produced by Samsung and found on devices like Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+ and Note 5.

Through a leaked screenshot from Geekbench and revealed by we get to see some numbers and results of this new CPU prepared. Is revealed that NUCLUN 2 will be developed on TSMC 16nm architecture and that it will pack 8 cores in a big.LITTLE system (4x Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.1 GHz + other four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz).


As you can see in the image above, Nulcun 2 manages to get a 1796 score in the single-core test, and 5392 points in the multi-core test, superior numbers compared to the ones of Exynos 7420 (single-core – 1486 / multi-core – 4970). However, we notice that the LG NUCLUN 2 results aren’t official, so things might change once announced.
