Hot off the heels of the Snapdragon 800 benchmarking event in San Francisco, LG has dropped a press release by noting that its next G series smartphone will include the aforementioned SoC. Although LG didn't call it out explicitly, this is undoubtedly the Optimus G2 which we've heard rumblings about, successor to last year's Optimus G which included Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064. 

LG mentions 75 percent better performance and tight integration with Snapdragon 800 in its future G series smartphone. No word on availability or when the announcement will drop, but I expect that will come later this fall.

    The Tegra 4 in Shield have active cooling, it outperforming a Passive cooled Snapdragon 800 would be no surprise. Reply

    Who told you it isn't? Google had a few generations of Samsung phones, maybe it's LG's turn (me like). Reply

    Nexus 4 with S4pro has plenty of cpu power already. I have never ever seen it lag or slow down at all. I hope Google focus on battery life and camera going forward.
    Battery life & camera are the 2 things that prevented me from getting a N4, maybe the upcoming xPhone or N5 can change my mind. I have high hopes for the xPhone.
