Winter is coming and all we can worry about is too much heat. The ghost of Qualcomm may or may not have to do with this Samsung development, though you try disseminating those Snapdragon 810 heat tests and putting that together with Samsung’s decision to go in-house for its chipsets this year.
As best we know it, Samsung is supposed to be manufacturing half of its Galaxy S7 units with its latest Exynos product while the other half, by supply necessity, is going with the Snapdragon 820.
Reports (from what we could tell, likely from Taiwanese parts [...]
Was the Snapdragon 810 chipset just a (flaming hot) fluke? Has Qualcomm restored its reputation of reliable performance in its high-tier silicon? Is all the bashing, the ridicule and the doubt over for the San Diego-based company? We will soon find out as the all-new Snapdragon 820 system-on-a-chip is available for OEMs to use right now.

If Google indeed plans to keep its next two Nexus smartphones on the sidelines until October, there may not be much left to announce by then. Already, we (think we) know a great deal about the stock Android Marshmallow-powered LG and Huawei phones, with the former manhandled and rendered last week, and the latter following suit now.
This isn’t the first time we’re getting convincing hints as to the external appearance of the alleged Nexus 6 sequel, but the photos floating around the interwebs today show something we haven’t seen before: an actual N6 2015 prototype, in all [...]
Achievements with caveats come quite often in this industry. While not on Apple levels of spectacular, these numbers do look good, though. For comparison, Xiaomi, which kicked into life in 2011, sold 400,000 units on its first year in the market. Meizu‘s first smartphone effort rendered 600,000 sales in 2009. Heck, it took OnePlus just this past year to make over a million sales. But only three months ago did LeTV start marketing a line of three smartphones — the Le 1, the Le 1 Pro and the Snapdragon 810-powered LeMax — and it has just announced its one millionth sale.
