LG says they’re not having issues with the Snapdragon 810 processor

G Flex 2
Announced at CES earlier this month, the LG G Flex 2 is a monster in terms of specs. Carrying the latest Snapdragon 810 processor, the phone has a lot to offer, but a recent report that Samsung had dropped the Snapdragon 810 due to overheating issues, has led LG to announce they’re not seeing any of these issues.

At a press event for the G Flex 2 in South Korea, Woo Ram-chan, LG vice president for mobile product planning advised assembled reporters

I am very much aware of the various concerns in the market about the (Snapdragon) 810, but the chip’s performance is quite satisfactory

The G Flex 2 is due to start shipping on the 30th of January in South Korea, and with that date in mind it’s obviously in the best interests of LG to try and allay fears in the lead up to the launch. Likewise, with Samsung choosing to use their own in-house Exynos processor instead of a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, it’s in their best interests to upsell their own processor.

The G Flex 2 has still not been confirmed to launch here in Australia, but given how much we enjoyed using the first one, we certainly would like to see it here. In the meantime, LG has released the official launch video for the G Flex 2, showing off the lovely curve of the phone, check it out and see what you think.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Was it a report or actual fact? Because Samsung usually use Snapdragon processors in western countries.
