Qualcomm: Rumors of overheating Snapdragon 810 are “nonsense”
The new top mobile processor Qualcomm – Snapdragon 810 – became famous this year with no characteristics, and allegations that there are problems with overheating. The chip has driven many devices, but Samsung decided to give it up and use their own Exynos 7420 in the new smartphone Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. In an interview with Forbes marketing vice president of Qualcomm’s Tim McDonough commented on the rumors and called them “nonsense” Snapdragon 810 is part of the smartphone LG G Flex 2 and the Korean company said it did not experience any problems with overheating of the CPU. McDonough said: “The rumors are nonsense, there was no problem with overheating with Snapdragon 810 commercial devices. If what they say is true, why were so many rumors? Why would anyone spreading false information about the 810?” In his words, “this is how is doing business” and that is the reason for the rumors. Interestingly, the early reviews of the smartphone HTC One M9 claimed that there is a problem with overheating, but McDonough said that “these numbers were not final, they are not commercial versions of devices. These decisions are made 18 months before the phone to show his face,” he said. Qualcomm is not entirely lost one of its biggest clients Samsung, Exynos who opted for the flagship, but continues to use Qualcomm processor for other products.
