While we have always sung praises for processor power, reports stating that Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 got overheated and caused havoc on the HTC One M9 surfaced few months back. The same story unfurled on the Sony Xperia Z4 for processor overheating. In fact, it is being widely circulated how the Snapdragon processor 810 gets heated up to 60-68 degrees Celsius.
Of late, leading mobile handset makers such as LG and Samsung have skipped incorporating the processor from this brand into their handsets or gadgets.
This signals a slight damper for fans awaiting the Lumia 940 XL from Microsoft.This upcoming flagship is rumored to feature Snapdragon 810 from Qualcomm. However, we have no confirmed reports if the company is working to erase the overheating issues.
If this goes on unhindered, there could be a knell for the upcoming Lumia 940 XL that Microsoft is heavily banking upon. If the latest features of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 2.1 are credible then we can expect the heating issues to be fixed.
