We have been hearing a lot about the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor over the last few weeks, the processor is used in the new LG G Flex 2 smartphone which launches this month.
Samsung were rumored to have dropped the new Snapdragon 810 from their Galaxy S6 smartphone, which could have been a PR disaster for Qualcomm.
The reason that Samsung were rumored to have dropped the processor from the Galaxy S6 was due to alleged overheating issues, although LG have come out and said that there is no overheating in the G Flex 2.
As Samsung are one of Qualcomm’s largest clients, the company has decided to produce an revised version of the Snapdragon 810 processor for Samsung, which means that we could still see a new Galaxy S6 handsets powered by the 810, but it would appear that this has not impressed LG.
According to a recent report, if Qualcomm does provide Samsung with an updated version of the Snapdragon 810 processor, then LG may end up suing Qualcomm.
If Samsung launch a new smartphone which has an improved processor over the one used in the LG G Flex 2, then this could end up hurting sales of LG’s device, as people will end up buying the device with the improved processor.
