After the launch of terminals such as the Galaxy Note 4 or the Nexus 6 with the Snapdragon 805 processor, it was clear that Qualcomm's next step for 2015 was the new Snapdragon 810. The last weeks of 2014, however, were quite murky, and it was rumored that the US company was having problems with the chip, even seeing the possibility that some of the flagships of major manufacturers delayed their launch. After announcing the LG G Flex 2 and Xiaomi Mi Note With Snapdragon 810, these doubts seem to clear, although not all.

According to Digitimes Research, the Snapdragon 810 has already entered mass production, with the objective of meeting the demand of the aforementioned smartphones of LG and Xiaomi. Although it was said that this moment would not come until the second quarter of 2015, Qualcomm would have managed to arrive on time. They had denied these problems, although it seems that there are certain aspects that do not work quite well, insufficient for many firms not to bet again on a solution that has proven in recent years, its reliability.

In fact, he is the first to adopt the <strong>Big.Little architecture</strong>, with two groups of four cores that do not work simultaneously, but four are used for lighter tasks and others for those that require more power. Digitimes explains they have been slow to take the step in fear of competing against Samsung. The <strong>64 bit chips</strong> With this architecture the South Koreans are already in their second generation, so their experience is much greater, so much so that they plan to change the manufacturing process of 20nm to that of 14nm this year.</p><p>With this movement, Qualcomm enters into competition in visiting territory, since the work time accumulated by Samsung gives them a certain advantage when integrating correctly optimized hardware and software. If we add to this the problems that have appeared, we have a somewhat worrisome picture. In their favor they play connectivity <strong>LTE Cat.9</strong> (they were the first to integrate it) and the <strong>manufacturers trust</strong> and the users</p><p></p><!-- WP QUADS Content Ad Plugin v. 1.8.17 --><div class=
