The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to launch at Mobile World Congress next month, we had previously heard that the device would come with two processor options, a Samsung Exynos 7420 and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.
Now according to a recent report, Samsung may end up dropping the Snapdragon 810 processor from their Galaxy S6 at launch, this is apparently due to rumored overheating issues with the Qualcomm processor.
Samsung will initially have 80-90% of processors used in its Galaxy S6 manufactured using its in-house developed 14nm process technology, according to the sources. With Qualcomm solving the overheating problem of its 810 mobile chip, Samsung will gradually increase the ratio for devices using Qualcomm’s processor, the sources said..
That would mean that the majority of S6 handset will come with the Samsung Exynos 7420 processor at launch, with Samsung increasing the usage of the Snapdragon 810 later on.
We are expecting to versions of the handset to be announced next month, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, which will come with a similar display to the Galaxy Note Edge.
