Yesterday, a report by Bloomberg stated that Samsung was ditching Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 in the Galaxy S6 due to overheating issues, with the manufacturer opting to go with its in-house Exynos processor instead. An LG executive has now come forward stating that the G Flex 2, which uses the same processor, does not suffer from any such issues.
Woo Ram-chan, LG vice president for mobile product planning, in fact said that the Snapdragon 810 emitted less heat than similar processors available in the market today. The executive, speaking at a launch event of the G Flex 2, said:
I am very much aware of the various concerns in the market about the (Snapdragon) 810, but the chip's performance is quite satisfactory. I don't understand why there is a issue over heat.
The G Flex 2 is scheduled to make its debut in LG's home market of South Korea on January 30. Samsung's Galaxy S6, meanwhile, is rumored to make a show during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on March 2.
