We've been hearing rumours for awhile about a possible delay in the manufacturing of the Samsung Galaxy S6, which was down to an issue with the latest Snapdragon chipset from Qualcomm. The 810 chip, which is set to appear in most premium handsets in 2015, has been having some difficulties in mass production, partly due to heat being generated while in use.
A new report suggests that Samsung is very concerned over these potential heating issues and has taken the decision to move away from Qualcomm for the Galaxy S6. Instead, the Korean tech giants will use their own Exynos chip for the vast majority of handsets, filling the remaining 10 percent or so with the Snapdragon.
If there's an issue at all then using these chips (which could overheat) for even 10 percent doesn't sound like a brilliant idea, but with millions of handsets to prep is a tough situation for Samsung to be in. If they follow form, the handset will be launched at Mobile World Congress in March before going into stores in April 2015. That's not much time, so hopefully they get these issues sorted.
