The Samsung Galaxy S6 was rumored to come with two processors at launch, Samsung’s new Exynos 7420 processor and the new Snapdragon 810 from Qualcomm.
We heard recently that the majority of the handsets would come with the Samsung Exynos processor, with around 10 percent using the Snapdragon 810 processor.
This was apparently because of rumored overheating issues on the new Snapdragon 810, Samsung was expected to use the processor more in the Samsung Galaxy S6 when the issues were fixed.
Now according to a recent report by Bloomberg, Samsung may drop the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor from their new Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone altogether.
Sales of the Samsung Galaxy S5 were less than Samsung had expected, and the company is looking to make their new Galaxy S6 smartphone popular, so using a processor that may have issues would not be the best idea for the company.
We should have more details on the new Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone next month, the handset is expected to be announced at MWC 2015 along with the Galaxy S6 Edge, both devices are rumored to hit the stores in March.
