There have been a lot of rumors surrounding Korea about the prime versions of both Galaxy S5 and LG G3 Though the prime version of Galaxy S5 finally came up in Korea but it was actually called Galaxy S5 LTE-A instead of Galaxy S5 Prime that has a Quad HD Super AMOLED display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor. We have seen this previously with the Galaxy S4 where the Korean version came with a Snapdragon 800 equipped Galaxy S4 later on which was an upgrade from the Snapdragon 600. This was done in order to achieve the high download speeds that LTE-A could offer.
The same thing might happen with LG G3 Prime though we haven’t heard anything from LG regarding any prime version of LG G3. Just recently in Korea an LG G3 phone dubbed with Cat. 6 went for pre-order which also supports LTE-A. The current Snapdragon 801 processor present on the LG G3 does not support CAT. 6 LTE-A speeds as it can’t offer up to 300Mbps of download speeds, but if the phone is equipped with a Snapdragon 805 processor that speeds can then be achieved so we are assuming that the new LG G3 Cat. 6 version will be equipped with a Snapdragon 805. Manufacturing such a smartphone won’t be a problem for LG as they have already launched a QHD display on their LG G3 and would only have to upgrade the current Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor to 805.
If you don’t know Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 supports Cat. 4 LTE that has a download speed of 150Mbps. The current UI of LG G3 still lags from time to time that we didn’t saw on the old LG G2 maybe that is because of the high resolution display that the phone is equipped with and by upgrading its processor to Snapdragon 805 LG G3 will get a big boost in performance as well.
