Qualcomm to deliver Snapdragon 810 chips to Samsung

The saga with the processor that will be used in the upcoming Galaxy S6 smartphone continues – after all it seems that Qualcomm will deliver Snapdragon 810 chips to Samsung that will be used in the new flagship smartphone.

Up until this moment Samsung has hesitated to use the Snapdragon 810 due to thermal issues with the chip, opting to use its own Exynos processor inside the new smartphone. It turns out now that Qualcomm has developed a new Snapdragon 810 revision that is free from this drawback. The new chip will be delivered in March 2015. Given that the Galaxy S6 is scheduled to appear in early March 2015, the first version of the S6 will likely come with an Exynos processor inside and not Snapdragon 810 so if you want the latter chip you will have to wait some more.

The Snapdragon 810 comes with four Cortex-A53 cores, four Cortex-A57 cores and Adreno 430 graphics. The new chip has so far offered excellent performance in numerous benchmarks.
