Qualcomm ‘Snaps’ Back and Looks Ahead

Qualcomm 'Snaps' Back and Looks AheadIn an attempt to cool a recent heat wave of negative news, Qualcomm is firing back with some news about its current flagship mobile chip, the Snapdragon 810.

According to a recent round of unfavorable reports, the chip has some issues (specifically, thermal issues) which is causing the likes of Samsung from moving away from it as its preferred processor.

Understandably, now Qualcomm wants everyone to know that there’s nothing but good things ahead for Snapdragon 810, issuing a press release to that effect this week.

The tech giant says the chip is still a fixture in many manufacturers’ mobile plans. In fact, Snapdragon 810 will find a home in a Microsoft Lumia device — a new flagship product for Windows Phone fans.

“Microsoft and Qualcomm’s long standing collaboration has allowed the two companies to offer compelling business, imaging, and entertainment experiences with Lumia smartphones running on Windows Phone,” said Juha Kokkonen, general manager for portfolio and product management at Microsoft, in the press release. “We look forward to continuing this relationship to deliver best in class Lumia smartphones, powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processors, and offer an unprecedented combination of processing power, rich multimedia, high-performance graphics and wireless connectivity for our customers.”
