Korea Times reports three J.P. Morgan analysts from South Korea claiming the Snapdragon 615 and 810 processors are overheating, with the issue affecting the later more. This is resulting in the Snapdragon 810’s clock rate performing less powerful than the Snapdragon 805. This issue may delay the release of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4.
The analysts add that Qualcomm and partner TSMC may have to go back to the drawing board and redesign the Snapdragon 810. This may result in the chip not being available until at least May. With a possible Snapdragon 810 launch delay, this could affect the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and LHG G4, which are said to have the processor under the hood.
Like we said before, the delay of the Snapdragon 810 may not worry Samsung, since it can always rely on its own CPU for mobile devices, the Exynos 7 Octa. This leaves LG in trouble since it mainly relies on Qualcomm to supply its smartphone’s processors.
Of course, since this is anything but official, take this with a grain of salt. Additionally, Qualcomm is likely to put a stop to this rumour soon.
