    In the last big LG news story of the morning, during LG's earnings conference call the company admitted they had some problems with the first batch of Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processors. They didn't specifically detail them as heat issues, but were simply throttling issues (which could have been attributed to heat).

    Despite this, LG indicated that they worked closely with Qualcomm and were able to solve the problems, which is why they moved forward with the G Flex 2 and will be moving forward with the G4. LG specifically indicated that these issues did not and will not effect their planned ship dates for either phone.

    Hmmm... this seems like a bit of "backtracking" on the part of LG, which recently defended Qualcomm claiming they had no problems with the Snapdragon 810. Does this help clear up some of the mystery, or obfuscate it further?

    Sounds like they are throttling it. I will be looking at ghz ratings when the phones launch!
