Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 was found to have overheat issues before the mobile chip maker rectified the issues. Well. It looks like the Snapdragon 820 has the same issues as claims by tipster.
An online tipster claims that the successor of Snapdragon 810 still has overheat issues. The successor of Snapdragon 810 is likely to be the Snapdragon 820 that is set to come in second half of the year. The tipster further claims that the issues will only be solved in Snapdragon 830 (P. Q3-16_.
Unfortunately, we are unable to confirm on the claims above. Perhaps, Qualcomm has solved the overheat issues and will ship the chips without any problem. We shall see after the launch of first smartphone powered by Snapdragon 820.
The California based company has suffered from share price dropped due to the overheat issues. The Samsung Galaxy S6 was originally tipped to have a Snapdragon 810 processor until the overheat issues broke out and the Korean company decided to insert an Exynos chipset in the flagship. However, Qualcomm has released a statement claiming that the overheat is no longer a issue for Snapdragon 810 chipset.
The damage has been done and it is unlikely that Qualcomm will allow it to happen for second times in a row. If Snapdragon 820 was again found to have overheat issues, manufacturers might move to rival brands such as MediaTek, Intel and even Samsung Exynos.
