There have been reports recently that Qualcomm's new flagship processor, the 64-bit Snapdragon 810, is facing problems. An apparent overheating issue has led to Samsung turning to its own Exynos chips for the initial run of the upcoming Galaxy S6, but some handsets like the LG G Flex 2 and Xiaomi Mi Note Pro have already been announced with the Snapdragon 810 on board.On top of that, numerous smartphones are tipped to land with the chipset in the near future, such as the Sony Xperia Z4, LG G4, and HTC One M8. Regarding the two flagships that have already been announced with the 810 (the G Flex 2 and Mi Note Pro), both will be released at the end of the month and both will be running the Snapdragon 810. There are reports that the chip is already well into mass production and will be on time for those two smartphones at the end of January. The question remains, will the chip be functioning properly, and can Qualcomm solve the overheating problem before release?
