Samsung almost confirmed to be skipping the Snapdragon 810 for the Galaxy S6

There has been enough talk about Samsung’s use of the Snapdragon 810 chipset on the Galaxy S6. Given the delays faced by Qualcomm’s new chip, it was widely believed that Samsung will go with its own Exynos 6 chipset instead. And it now seems like the company is leaning heavily towards the use of the Exynos 6 owing to the overheating issues faced by the Snapdragon 810 SoC.

Although Snapdragon 810 would have been the company’s preferred choice of chipset, using the Exynos 6 might make it easier for the company to streamline production and have enough units to keep up with the demand. It is being said that Samsung is going to go all guns blazing with the Galaxy S6, so as far as the performance isn’t compromised, we don’t think the customers will mind all that much.

It was previously believed that Samsung will retain the Snapdragon 810 model of the Galaxy S6 in some regions while using Exynos 6 in a majority of other countries, probably Asia. The company is expected to unveil its latest flagship at the MWC 2015 event on the 2ndĀ of March, so we don’t have to wait long to find out.
