Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 has been plagued by overheating rumors. AnandTech has put the SoC through a series of benchmarks to assess the 810’s real performance.
LG, Microsoft, Motorola, OPPO, Sony and Xiaomi have issued a joint press release with Qualcomm to praise the allegedly troubled Snapdragon 810 SoC.
In an earnings conference, LG admitted that they had seen some issues with the initial batches of Snapdragon 810 chips but had since worked out all the issues with Qualcomm. Furthermore, LG says that the G Flex 2 and LG G4 won’t be affected by the 810’s alleged problems.
While Qualcomm didn’t directly say Samsung isn’t using the Snapdragon 810 in its next-gen flagship, they did reveal that they are adjusting revenue expectations for the second half of the year due to the fact that a “large customer” has elected not to use Qualcomm’s latest chip in their flagship device.
Report say Qualcomm is scrambling to modify the Snapdragon 810, with a “fixed” version to be presented to Samsung in March. LG and other clients may not be too happy about it.
LG’s vice president has stated that the G Flex 2’s performance is “satisfactory” and that there isn’t an issue with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC overheating.
Samsung will be using in-house Exynos chips for the Galaxy S6, dropping Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor due to overheating issues, a credible report claims.
