    If this latest Sony rumor is true, then it's entirely possible the rumored heat issues with the Snapdragon 810 from Qualcomm were true after all. Supposedly, Sony is struggling with reducing the heat generated by the Snapdragon 810 on their new Xperia Z4 smartphone.

    The report indicates that the Xperia Z4 tablet, which also has the Snapdragon 810 doesn't have the same problem, because it has a larger area to spread out the heat. Additionally, the other problem is that Sony's next flagship smartphone is extra thin, which makes it tougher for them to dissipate heat properly with the device.

    For now this is just rumor, but it does make you wonder what took Sony so long to announced their next Xperia Z smartphone...

    Wasn't it LG that said there were heat issues, but they were able to overcome them?

    These stories keep lending more credit to the rumors that the S6 wouldn't have a Snapdragon variant. (I haven't been over all of the news and specs for the s6 yet, so please don't shoot me in the head if that rumor proved to not be true.)

    It wasn't rumor @Jonny Kansas... it was confirmed that they will not have a version of the device with the Snapdragon 810. They are only going with their own Exynos 7420.

    Thanks. Got myself up to speed on the device after having posted that comment.

    So, all those manufacturers came out in support of Qualcomm, but there's definitely a heat issue with the processor.

    Glad I upgraded when I did then. Don't need to deal with another phone that likes to run hot after my time with the S4 (and an overclocked OG Droid back in the day).

    Yes the S4 does run hot, there is a reason they are called "snapdragon", LOL.

    My Note 4 also does not run hot, but the 600 chip in the S4 does run a bit on the hot side.
