Remember that recent rumor that claimed that the Samsung Galaxy S6 might not have a Snapdragon 810 when it comes to market? Well, it looks like that report may have been accurate.
In the announcement of its Q1 2015 results, Qualcomm says that it has lowered its outlook for the second half of fiscal 2015. One reason for the change, Qualcomm explains, is that it expects that the Snapdragon 810 “will not be in the upcoming design cycle of a large customer’s flagship device”.
While Qualcomm doesn’t specifically name the Galaxy S6 as the “flagship device” that won’t use the Snapdragon 810, it certainly seems like that’s the product that Qualcomm is referring to. Not only do we have the rumor mill to consider, but Samsung is definitely a “large customer”, it’s got a new flagship device in the works, and Samsung does have the option of passing on the Snapdragon 810 since its got its own Exynos chips that it can use.
Samsung is currently rumored to planning a Galaxy S6 reveal at MWC, which kicks off on March 2. If it lacks a Snapdragon 810, will that be a deal breaker for you?
