Sony allegedly battling with Snapdragon 810 heat dissipation from the thin Xperia Z4
Qualcomm already mentioned Sony in a puff piece about the Snapdragon 810 chipset's virtues, so there is every chance that this is what the Xperia Z4 will be using. Famed leakster Ricciolo, however, is tipping that Sony might be looking for engineering solutions to dissipate the arguably significant amount of heat that Snapdragon 810 generates, without compromising the chassis structure of what might be one of the thinnest flagships around when it lands.
Well, Sony is the company that just gave us the world's thinnest slate - the Xperia Z4 Tablet - and this one is powered by an 810 processor, but, of course, there's much more surface for heat dissipation on a 10" slate than on a compact smartphone. Still, we have a firm belief in Sony's engineering prowess, and can't wait for the final Xperia Z4 design to emerge.
