Qualcomm refutes claims of Snapdragon 810 delays

Qualcomm has rubbished reports that the Galaxy S6 release date is being pushed back due to delays with the upcoming Snapdragon 810 processor.

Earlier this week supply chain sources suggested that Samsung’s future flagship phone would miss its planned MWC unveiling due to multiple issues with the 64-bit chipset in line to power the device.

Now, however, Qualcomm has spoken out on the reported Snapdragon 810 issues, stating the processor “remains on track”.

“We won’t comment on any of the rumor or speculation you referenced but I can tell you that everything with Snapdragon 810 remains on track and we expect commercial devices to be available in 1H 2015,” an official Qualcomm spokesperson stated.

With the Snapdragon 810 CPU expected to power a host of upcoming flagship phones – including both the HTC One M9 and the LG G4 – reports of delays caused a wave of concern to filter through the mobile market.

The claimed insiders reported that “the Snapdragon 810 overheats when it reaches a specific voltage”.

They added that the CPU “slows down owing to problems with the RAM controller connected to the AP”, and that “there is an error in the driver of the Adreno 430 GPU”.

Although Qualcomm has failed to comment on the validity of these claims, the chipset maker has promised that the processor will not be delayed.
