Problems with overheating, the processor will delay the output of major competitors iPhone 6s




Qualcomm Snapdragon platform 810, which will run at 2 GHz and 1.6 GHz, depending on the processor cores, now prophesied analysts and thematic resources in nearly all the top Android-phones. However, it is possible that manufacturers, including Samsung, Sony, HTC and LG, will have to revise their plans.


According to the newspaper Business Korea, referring to a source in the industry, Snapdragon 810 can not get work correctly: there is overheating and falling speed of the chip. Also, there are problems with the memory controller and operation of the video Adreno 430.

Usually Samsung unveils new flagship smartphone Galaxy S series at the MWC in Barcelona, ​​which this time will begin in March. Theoretically, LG has a little more time, since its previous high-end model, G3, it launched in the summer, but there is a tendency to an earlier announcement of the flagship vehicles.

Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 810 is positioned as the “most productive” 64-bit processor for smartphones. For Samsung potential solution would be to use their own chip Exynos. LG also has its own processor NUCLUN, but it is only intended for entry-level phones. Also, the problem may encounter Sony, planned to use 810 Snapdragon smartphone Xperia Z4 and not having its own processor.

There is no doubt that Qualcomm eventually solve all problems. The only question is that if the process drags on solving these problems, manufacturers have to choose for their new flagship any other platform. And in connection with this problem, which is relevant in the current year. The new flagship model of Android-devices will be too little different from the previous ones, which clearly does not have a positive effect on the level of sales.


And although the current high-end platform Qualcomm absolutely cope with all tasks and objectively do not need to be replaced, the market dictates different conditions and producers will have to somehow get out of the situation.
