Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4, and Sony Xperia Z4 may be delayed, here’s why
We’ve read early rumors and leaks about three of next year’s top Android flagships — Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4 and the Sony Xperia Z4, however, a new report surfacing from Korea suggests that the making of the three smartphones might be grounded to a halt for sometime, causing a delay in their respective dates.
According to the source, this is because Qualcomm — who is responsible for the chipsets that will tick in the hearts of these devices — is currently facing issues with production of the Snapdragon 810 processors. The reports says that the chispets were causing overheating issues when used in a device.
“Qualcomm is faced with hard-to-solve problems. The Snapdragon 810 overheats when it reaches a specific voltage. It also slows down owing to problems with the RAM controller connected to the AP. In addition, there is an error in the driver of the Adreno 430 GPU,” an insider told us.
If things went as planned, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to be unveiled in the first quarter of 2015 as well as the LG G4. However, Sony’s Xperia Z4 — earlier rumored to be packing a Snapdragon 805 chip instead — is expected to break cover earlier with a launch date set for the 2015 CES which is bound to take place in January next place.
