The Snapdragon 810 CPU which was supposed to be present in next-gen flagships of 2015 such as the LG G4, Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 seemed to be having some trouble according to a certain report. We had originally believed that the issues the Snapdragon 810 was having with the manufacturing process and performance problems would impact the Galaxy S6, LG G4 and HTC One M9 release date, but Qualcomm has since eased our minds saying that their new chipset is on track.
The Snapdragon 810 was reportedly having performance and overheating issues, which would have delayed the manufacturing process of the chipset. While Qualcomm did not deny that the Snapdragon 810 was having issues, they did say that they were on track with the manufacturing and testing process and people should stay calm and wait for the first half of 2015, when the first phones touting the powerful 64 bit Snapdragon 810 chipset would hit the market.While we don’t have official confirmation from companies, the LG G4, Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 specs all supposedly include the new chipset from Qualcomm.
The Snapdragon 810 would be the first Qualcomm high-end chipset to use 64 bit architecture and since the brand new Android 5.0 Lollipop was released with such systems in mind, it would be a shame to see tomorrow’s flagships go without the appropriate chipset to support the Lollipop treatment. The Snapdragon 810 will be a 64 bit octa-core processor, as high as high-end goes. It will be made up of four Cortex A57 and four Cortex A53 processors, alongside an Adreno 430 GPU which was reportedly having a lot of issues. The Snapdragon 810 will also support 4K video streaming and QuickCharge 2.0. While the statement from Qualcomm doesn’t sound very reassuring, we do hope Snapdragon 810 will be ready by early 2015, since our estimated Galaxy S6 release date is March or April 2015.
