New LG K Series Devices Coming, Benchmarked With Snapdragon 430


LG Mobile seem to be hard at work and are planning on shelling out two new devices on the K series lineup which started earlier this year with the K7 and K10 devices.

The duo of new smartphones from LG are probably going to be called K530 and K535 if the benchmark details is anything to go by.

The LG K530 and K535 devices visited GeekBench courtesy of an unknown tester, and thus we had a few details seen from the testing done at the benchmark platform.

So far from the info tab of the benchmark platform, we know the LG K530 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 chipset (which has a 1.2 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU and the Adreno 505 GPU). There’s 2GB of RAM on board the device. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow was confirmed as the OS of the tested prototype.

Geekbench’s processor speed rating of the LG 530 read 1.4GHz which is probably an error seeing that Qualcomm’s official documents say the Snapdragon 430 chipset doesn’t exceed 1.2 GHz on each core.

The error of clock-speed measurement from GeekBench continues as the LG K535 measured 0MHz on it’s own test. Asides the errors, we know the LG K535 and K530 are pretty identical in their specs, expect that the K535 has a higher RAM capacity, pegged at 3GB, against the 2GB of the K30.

Could we be seeing different versions of the same smartphone? Time will tell, but in any case, the LG K530 and K535 are yet to pop out official. We’ll keep our ears to the ground as to when they do.
