Many of you may recall the recent drama surrounding the Snapdragon 810 processor. There was a rumor that Samsung was going to use their own processors in their upcoming Galaxy S6 as opposed to the Snapdragon 810 due to “thermal issues” the 810 was having. LGs vice president of mobile product planning followed up with a statement essentially calling Samsung a liar because they themselves were getting ready to release the G Flex 2 and it used a Snapdragon 810 with no issues.
All this caused most people to believe that Samsung was just making up the Snapdragon 810 thermal issues so that they could have an excuse to switch to using their own processors on their upcoming flagship device. But now it looks like Samsung may have been telling the truth about the Snapdragon 810 after all.
During LGs latest financial results, the company said that they too actually experienced some issues with the Snapdragon 810 during testing. Can you guess what kind of issue? Yep, overheating issues, just like Samsung claimed to have been experiencing. But LG says those issues have since been fixed and that said issues will not affect the release date of their G Flex 2. But this leaves us wondering why the vice president for mobile product planning at LG had said earlier that they had absolutely no issues with the Snapdragon 810.
