LG denies rumors of suing Qualcomm over Snapdragon 810 dispute

Snapdragon 810

A few days ago, we began hearing reports that LG was not too satisfied with Qualcomm’s decision to offer a special version of the Snapdragon 810 chip to Samsung. The report has further added that they would sue Qualcomm if they made such an offer to Samsung.

Today, the Korean manufacturer has clarified to the media that it doesn’t intend to take the legal route should Qualcomm offer a modified version of the Snapdragon 810 SoC for the Samsung Galaxy S6. The company said in a statement to a website – “Rumors regarding LG taking legal action against Qualcomm are unfounded and a complete fabrication of the facts.”

LG is using the Snapdragon 810 chipset with the G Flex 2 smartphone which was announced a few weeks ago during the CES in Las Vegas. So it was only natural to assume that the company would be angered if Qualcomm was to offer a modified version of the chip to an industry rival like Samsung. The company has clearly denied any overheating issues with Snapdragon 810, so this is a non-issue from LG’s perspective.
