Samsung is reportedly interested in a BlackBerry acquisition — the details of the alleged offer, as well as BlackBerry’s press release which refutes the rumor, leaving however, a tiny door open just in case ca be found here — and now the South Korean phone-maker is, again, in the headlines, this time, with regards to its next flagship, the Galaxy S 6.
Samsung might ditch Qualcomm for the 2015 Galaxy S — the sixth in the company’s history — according to a recent report. According to “rumors from the industry”, Samsung might opt to equip the Galaxy S 6 with its own Exynos chips, dumping the Snapdragon 810 SoC, due to some overheating issues on the Qualcomm chip. The same report claims that, on the other hand, we will probably see, again, two different flavors of the Galaxy S 6, powered by either a Qualcomm Snapdragon, or an Exynos chip.
This thing will be achievable, according to the report, in time; initially, 80 to 90 percent of Galaxy S 6 phones would be powered by Samsung’s own processors, with the rest being taken up by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon, in time, as the manufacturer solves said claimed overheating issues. The ratio could also change in time.
