Contrary to reports that Qualcomm’s all-powerful Snapdragon 810 processor is facing overheating issues, LG has come out to rubbish the claim, citing that the processor does not overheat in any way.
LG Electronics’ executive Woo Ram-chan who is Vice President of mobile, has refused to believe the accusation, saying that the Snapdragon 810 is the least heated chipset, at least for the ones that were used on the company’s curved LG G Flex2 smartphone.
“I am very much aware of the various concerns in the market about the (Snapdragon) 810, but the chip’s performance is quite satisfactory,” VP Ram-chan said. “I don’t understand why there is a issue over heat,” he concluded.
Yesterday we heard that fellow Korean compatriots Samsung has canceled plans of using the said chipset for its upcoming flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S6. The phone maker instead opted to make use of its in-house-made Exynos chipset — which has been used in some high-range Samsung smartphones like the Galaxy Alpha — even as Qualcomm said there were no issues with the Snapdragon 810.
