Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 heating issues possibly fixed

Lumia smartphones powered by Snapdragon 810 processors are also expected to arrive soon

A couple of months ago, a report regarding the Snapdragon 810 Application Processor (AP) claimed that the chip may not be ready for widespread delivery in the first half of 2015 owing to overheating and slowdown issues when it reaches a certain voltage. Now, a Chinese analyst with links to the foundry where the processor is being manufactured claims that these issues have been fixed.

The analyst also states that production for the chip will be speeded up so it's ready for sale next month, for the upcoming flagship devices. However, the Galaxy S6 powered by the Exynos processor will not be among them; Qualcomm recently stated that it lost a 'large customer', hinting at Samsung, but so far nothing concrete has been verified either way.

The Snapdragon 810 has already been confirmed to be in LG’s next flagship, the LG G4, and will possibly power the unannounced HTC One M9 as well. However, we'd still advise you to take this news with a grain of salt considering the lack of evidence at this stage.
