Nagging Snapdragon 810 issues may push back this year's flagships, cell phone

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 could be poised to transform smartphones – yet it can only do so if it really lands successfully.

And it’s appearing like that might not occur, according to the newest rumors.

Word that releases with the Snapdragon 810 could induce hold-ups in some 2015 front runners – consisting of the Samsung Galaxy S6 as well as the LG G4 – initially dropped in December, and also those reports continue to today, in spite of Qualcomm’s insistence otherwise.

The latest originates from the Korea Times, which states the Snapdragon 810 is still afflicted with ‘getting too hot and also other technical issues.’

In addition J.P. Morgan experts said their own research proves guides that the Snapdragon 810, as well as the Snapdragon 615, are experiencing overheating, as Android Authority directs out.

The experts said based upon their study they believe the concern is caused by the chip’s brand-new 64-bit ARM design, and also that tools with the 810 aboard are getting also hot when they clock over the 1.2 GHz to 1.4 GHz range.

The LG G Flex 2 – a device we went hands-on with at CES 2015 – is loading the Snapdragon 810, as well as that rounded appeal appears to function just fine on the surface area. Android Authority ran a benchmark that reportedly came in worse compared to phones with older Snapdragon chipsets.

Obviously that’s a huge issue, though it’s also quite much unconfirmed at this time, and also Qualcomm has actually maintained its innocence all along.
