Rumors about the delay of Snapdragon 810 surface again

Snapdragon 810

According to multiple reports, Qualcomm could have decided to delay the supply of the new 64-bit Snapdragon 810 chipset. Earlier last month, we heard reports of the chipset receiving overheating related complaints. This new report mentions the same issue and claims that the Cortex-A57 CPU cores on the device are to be blamed.

We’re yet to ascertain whether these rumors are accurate as Qualcomm has remained silent on the matter. Interestingly, the LG G Flex 2 smartphone which was announced at the CES event a couple of days ago has the Snapdragon 810 chip by default. However, analysts claim that there should be no issues with the smartphone as most of the chip and GPU’s features are allegedly incompatible with the device.

This new chipset is expected to be used on the LG G4, the Samsung Galaxy S6 as well as the HTC One M9. But with the launch of the SoC probably being pushed, manufacturers could be forced into using the Snapdragon 805 chip which is the next best thing after the 810.
