    "Curiouser and curiouser... " It appears that we have a new wrinkle in the building story of the upcoming G3 from LG, one that Alice would be intrigued by. A screenshot of a benchmark showed up online that is supposedly of the upcoming LG D-850. As we have reported previously, the D-850 is suspected to be the G3. What is unusual about this benchmark isn't that the rumored QHD display is on-hand. We won't be surprised if that turns out to be true. The surprising thing found in this benchmark is that it sports an octa-core MediaTek processor.

    Up until now, most of the industry speculated that the G 3 would come with either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU or it's faster cousin, the Snapdragon 805. If this pic is not fake, then this would be a strong departure from the norm for LG. It might not be too surprising when we take a look at the chip though. Reports indicate that it is a serious advancement for MediaTek and is supposedly a serious competitor to the Snapdragon 805, at a cheaper price. Here's a quote with some details on this chip,

    What do you guys think? Would you care what manufacturer made the chip in a flagship device as long as it was powerful and battery efficient?

    Qualcomm needs to be taken down a few notches. Lets hope MediatTek's chip is as good as it sounds and that they play a bit nicer with the open source foundation Qualcomm is supposed to be doing but doesn't.
