Researcher says there will be no heating issues with the Snapdragon 820
Earlier this month, Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang posted on his Weibo page (natch!) that Qualcomm won't be shipping the new chips before December. Jiutang says that the Xiaomi Mi 5 will be the first handset to use the chip when it launches next March. Rumored to be coming the same month, powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC, is the Asus PadFone S2. Sony and HTC are also believed to prepping handsets that will be powered by the new chipset.
Qualcomm itself says that the new chipset won't turn handsets into Easy Bake Ovens, but this really won't be known until the new chips are tested inside the devices they will be powering.
Thanks for the tip!
