Samsung’s Galaxy S6 may drop the Snapdragon 810 chip

The upcoming high-end Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone may not be what many analysts expect – the device will likely feature a Samsung Exynos processor instead of the new and powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chip.

The reason for the change is simple – the Snapdragon 810 has heat issues and emits too much heat that makes the smartphone uncomfortable to use, damage-prone and less energy efficient. Thus the problematic chip will be replaced by a much colder and much more energy efficient Exynos chip on 14 nm tech process.

Other sources claim that the Galaxy S6 will come in two versions – the first version will be limited and will feature the Snapdragon 810 chip, while the other version will use the aforementioned Exynos processor. Then with time and given Qualcomm solves the overheating issue in the Snapdragon 810, Samsung will greatly increase the number of S6 smartphones with a Snapdragon 810 processor inside.

The Galaxy S6 is expected at MWC 2015, which is scheduled for 2-5 March, 2015.
