Analysts say Samsung can't ditch Snapdragon so fast
Market analysts have also been speaking their mind regarding the recent hot rumor about Samsung deciding to ditch Snapdragon 810 and ship its Galaxy S6 flagship equipped with the homemade Exynos chipset. According to various experts however, this rumor is a fluke.

Firstly, analysts say, the Snapdragon 810's overheating was a long-present issue, but one which Qualcomm have already resolved. The mishap caused the company to delay mass production by an approximate of 2 - 3 months, but now, all is ready.

Furthermore, Sammy only uses its Exynos chipsets in 20 percent of its smartphone line, which means it will most probably need a heavy boost of SoC production, if it is to swap Snapdragon chips out of its phones. Such a reverse is "almost impossible" to do in such a fast manner, Tim Long of BMO Capital Markets says.

Well, there you have it – more conflict and more differing opinions. What do you think – could Samsung really be ditching the Snapdragon 810? We can't say we buy it...
