Qualcomm confirmed that the high-end Snapdragon 810 chip will not feature “in the upcoming design cycle of a large customer’s flagship device.” The San Diego-based chipmaker announced its first quarter results for the fiscal 2015.
A series of rumors point at Samsung Galaxy S6 as the most likely device to ditch Snapdragon 810 for another solution. The Korean giant’s next flagship smartphone will likely utilize a beefy Exynos 7420 chipset with 14nm architecture and octa-core CPU.
Qualcomm posted a stellar net income of $2.1 billion from $7.1 billion of revenue for the quarter it reported. However, due to the Snapdragon 810 snub and increased competition from China, the company lowered its earnings expectations for the second half of the fiscal 2015.
Overall. Qualcomm somewhat confirmed the floating rumors about Snapdragon 810 not being up to snuff. Losing a “large customer” is certainly not something the company is used to - its silicon featured in just about every high-end smartphone over the past couple of years.

To be honest, I'm not sure, but I promise you mine suffers from said issue. I hate it. Makes me want to toss my phone out the window.
