Problems with Snapdragon 810
There are some problems associated with the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chipset like over heating issues when used for long. Many grapevines claims that this over heating issue was the reason why Samsung opted to go for their own processor i.e Exynos chipset for galaxy s6 and galaxy S6 Edge.
After Samsung, it was LG who moved away from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chipset. For their latest variant LG G4, instead of Snapdragon 810, LG preferred lower-powered Snapdragon’s 808 chipset. If rumors to be trusted then the reason why opted for chipset other than 810 is its battery issues and over-heating problem, though nothing has been officially said, these all are just rumors.
But Qualcomm on their part are rubbishing any of such reports of overheating issues on their Snapdragon 810 chipset. Possibly even Qualcomm is also working on bringing the Deca core processor which company will introduce to compete against the MediaTek’s latest venture. Company will dub it with the name of Snapdragon 818. It is also anticipated to support LTE Cat-10 speed.
