Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4 might get delayed due to Qualcomm Snapdragon

Samsung logoIt seems that the Snapdragon 810, Qualcomm's “flagship” chipset that will power some of the more-anticipated devices of the upcoming year, might reportedly get delayed due to a series of most unfortunate issues. As per certain rumors that are circulating in the air, the CPU on board the Snapdragon 810 chipset (the clock speeds of which got revealed earlier today) is experiencing overheating problems at certain voltage levels, which leads to under-performance.

But that's not the only problem that Qualcomm's 64-bit capable beast is reportedly faced against. Apart from the CPU, the Adreno 430 GPU unit is also said to be problematic due to an error in the drivers. And last, but not least, the application processor's RAM controller is allegedly causing a lot of headaches over at Qualcomm.

These issues might prove to be quite problematic for Qualcomm. It's even speculated that they might be the culprit for a production delay. This can potentially lead to a delay in the production of some of 2015's hottest and much-expected devices that will make use of the Snapdragon 810 – the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the LG G4, among others. Well, Samsung can still resort to its own Exynos chipsets, but LG is yet to release a phone with its own NUCLUN SoC, which is reportedly flawed.
