Samsung could skip Snapdragon 810 and use its own custom chip with the Galaxy S6

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to launch in March this year. However, before that happens, there’s plenty of talk about the processor and chipset used on the flagship. While it was believed to be an almost certainty that Samsung will go with the Snapdragon 810 chip, recent reports suggested that some issues with power management has pushed the launch of the chip further. This led to speculation that Samsung will instead use the slightly older Snapdragon 805 chipset which is used on the current crop of flagships.

However, a new reports hints that Samsung might ditch Qualcomm altogether and use its custom Exynos chip for the smartphone. This is barely surprising as Samsung was expected to have an Exynos variant of the smartphone anyways. It is being said that Samsung might switch back to Snapdragon 810 when Qualcomm sorts out the issues with the chip.

Samsung will reportedly use a chipset which is developed using the 14nm manufacturing process, so it could be certainly something to look forward to.
