The #Snapdragon810 chipset was marred with controversy last year for its overheating issues. Leading to the failure of several smartphones, including HTC’s #OneM9. The issue was so severe that Samsung ultimately decided to go with its home-grown Exynos 7420 SoC for the #GalaxyS6 duo, which turned out to be a masterstroke for Samsung considering its sales and worldwide popularity.

A new report is now claiming that the Snapdragon 810 chipset might be on course to make a comeback. Much talked about HTC smartphone, the Arcadia a.k.a the Bolt will supposedly feature this controversial chipset, well according to a popular HTC source anyway. LlabTooFeR claims that the smartphone will also have a 5.5-inch Quad HD display on board, which puts it in the league of the flagship phones that are currently selling globally.

Unfortunately, we don’t know much about this device at the moment, but it’s possible that further details will be revealed in the form of leaks. One can assume that this will HTC’s successor to the One A9 which was launched at about the same time last year.
