The Snapdragon 810 Processor Does Not Have Any Overheating Issues After All

Of late, we have been hearing a lot about Qualcomm’s next processor, the Snapdragon 810. Some manufacturers, including Samsung have said that this particular processor has overheating issues and the company has no plans to use it in its next flagship, the Galaxy S6. The company will opt for its own Exynos 7420.


Of course Qualcomm and a few other Smartphone manufacturers have denied the overheating issues and Qualcomm even went ahead to say that most premium Smartphones this year will be having the Snapdragon 810 processor.

Well, it looks like Samsung was wrong (probably using this to push its own processor) as a new report has revealed that the Snapdragon 810 is actually cooler that its predecessor, the snapdragon 801. The conclusion was arrived at after testing a device currently on the market running Snapdragon 801 processor on Full HD and a prototype Smartphone  using the Snapdragon 810 processor on a Quad HD display.

Both devices were used in the same conditions, running the same apps and capturing 4K video.

The results showed that under the same conditions, the Snapdragon 801 reaches its thermal ceiling faster that the new Snapdragon 810 processor. This shows that the recent report about the Snapdragon 810 processor overheating issues are inaccurate.

Have a look at the chart below;
