With many believing that the super snub of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 on the Samsung Galaxy S6 could mean an informal end to the relationship between Samsung and Qualcomm, the latter has come out to rebuff the school of though, explaining that “you don’t have to win every time.”

“We don’t win every handset design with every OEM and that’s normal for us,” Qualcomm’s VP of marketing said in an interview.

“We are proud of our products, but we have a reasonable sense of humility and realize you don’t win every one all of the time. That’s normal. If you plan for having 100 per cent of everything, you’re going to be wrong very frequently.”

For the first time in many years, Samsung is expected to use its in-house Exynos CPU alone in the next Galaxy flagship. The South Korean phone maker has promised very fast performance and battery life despite a reduced battery capacity in the S6.
