Qualcomm powering next LG smartphone, will use Snapdragon S4 Pro

Qualcomm has slipped and has announced that they will be providing chips for LG’s next generation smartphone that’s slated to be released within this year. There’s no firm product name yet, but there’s rumors swirling ’round the web that this particular smartphone will be dubbed as the LG Optimus G. This smartphone will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro platform, and the company says the phone itself will get a release in Korea first in September before being rolled out in the global market right after. We’re hoping to get official word when the actual product will launch (and what it’ll be called) and you can be sure we’ll be on top of that story as soon as it breaks.
