Qualcomm confirms that LG’s G5 will sport the Snapdragon 820 chipset

As you may already know, practically all the countless rumors and leaks that we’ve seen so far describing the upcoming LG G5 have said it would come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset powering it. That obviously makes sense, as the G5 will be LG’s new flagship smartphone, and it doesn’t look like the 820 has the same kind of overheating problems as its predecessor, the 810 (which LG decided to skip in the G4 in favor of the 808).

And now Qualcomm has gone ahead and confirmed that the Snapdragon 820 will indeed be inside the G5, as seen in the tweet below.

A focus on playfulness has been front and center in LG’s invites for its MWC event this Sunday, as has been the robot you can see outlined in Qualcomm’s tweet above. Oh, and it’s not like LG would put the Snapdragon 820 inside anything less than its top of the line offering. Hence it’s clear that it is the G5 that will be powered by Qualcomm’s newest high-end chip.
