Hard time for the Qualcomm, the heating matter is now become a hot news of cell phone market. From starting to till date the Snapdragon 810 SoC has been shrouded in a lot of controversy.
The overheating of chipset and serious performance issues creating deep impact on the market of Qualcomm. The Problems are not even stop here it is extended even further with claims of troubles with the chip’s RAM controller, as well as possible bugs in the Adreno 430 GPU drivers.
The company does at their level best to solve out the problems but it seems all in vain. The overheating issue strongly hit the sales of Snapdragon 810 SoC.
Now, the heat coming from biggest clients of the company as well, Sony eagerly anticipated towards the issue. The latest Smartphone of Sony Xperia Z4 and Xperia Z3+ build with Snapdragon 810 SoC and one more thing the issue of heating first feel by the users of these 2 handsets also. These handsets supposedly run on a revision 2.1 of the Snapdragon 810, meaning that, at this point, the design seems so fatally flawed that it is beyond salvageable. On these two handset its look like put up a coffin by the Snapdragon 810 SoC.
LG and Samsung also not aside from this heating issue their respective flagships will most definitely be affected by the unfortunate circumstances. But Samsung, quite early on in the development cycle of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Samsung does appear to have a backup plan, as it could potentially rely on its alternative Exynos SoC for the Galaxy S6, but that is far from a perfect and painless solution.
While these errors are most likely all fixable, they do sound serious enough to postpone mass production of the Snapdragon 810, so all consequent flagship launches in the first half of 2015 may need to use other types of chip-sets.
All in all, the Snapdragon 810’s market failure comes as no real surprise. On the other hand, the consequences it entails could dramatically reshape the mobile world for years to come. We’ll just have to wait and see.
