When the Snapdragon 810 first saw widespread release with the LG G Flex2 earlier this year, some reports of overheating began to surface. This was later substantiated when the likes of the HTC One M9 and multiple other Snapdragon 810 running devices showed complaints.
The issue was so widespread that LG had to resort to using the slightly underpowered Snapdragon 808 chipset with the G4, while Samsung decided to ditch Qualcomm altogether for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge flagships.
In order to put these issues to rest, Qualcomm decided to release the next gen Snapdragon 820 SoC for the 2nd half of 2015. But now, a person who claims to have knowledge about the chipset has mentioned that the Snapdragon 820 also has overheating issues of its own. He didn’t give out the specifics as the revelation was made on Twitter, but if this is true, Qualcomm might be in for a very tough year going into the second half.
The chip maker only recently unveiled Snapdragon 820 and it’s unlikely that the chip has gone into production this early, so the information should have come directly from within Qualcomm if this is legitimate. In any case, we wouldn’t be too concerned for the time being as there’s no evidence to back this up. What do you make of this?
