Qualcomm denies Snapdragon 810 delay reports

On track, commercial devices in first half of 2015

Last Friday we ran a report on technical issues plaguing Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 810 processor, the company's first consumer SoC based on the 20nm process.

Reports coming out of Korea alleged the chip was experiencing thermal issues, along with memory and GPU bugs. We reached out to Qualcomm and the company reassured us that everything is on track.

Jon Carvill, Qualcomm's Senior Director of Public Relations, told Fudzilla that the company won't comment on any of the rumours or speculation referenced in our report (based on Business Korea's reporting).
"I can tell you that everything with Snapdragon 810 remains on track and we expect commercial devices to be available in 1H 2015," said Carvill.

This means next generation Android flagships are unlikely to be delayed due to any potential issues associated with Qualcomm silicon. Of course, they could face other issues and delays always remain a possibility, but that has nothing to do with Qualcomm or its first 20nm 64-bit part.
