How much of this is true - we can't know for sure. So, what about the 2015 flagships that were already announced – such as the LG G Flex 2 and the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro? Did these manufacturers manage to curb overheating issues?
Well, LG's vice president of mobile, Woo Ram-chan, commented on the supposed obstacle, while on a press event for the new G Flex 2. According to him, the Snapdragon 810-equipped banana phone actually emits less heat than other smartphones at the moment, and he really did not understand how the overheating report could be true.
Of course, Samsung may just want to move its flagships entirely to home-made chips, so it could reduce costs and have greater control over its smartphones, both on the software and hardware ends. The overheating rumor could be either a misunderstanding, or a fluke. Naturally, there could also be some truth to it, but then, we'd be calling LG liars. We guess we'll just let time tell.
