Figures within the South Korean tech giant Samsung have said that they will use their own processor in the next iteration in the Galaxy S series, ending their association with fellow South Korean company Qualcomm.

The change of heart has reportedly come after Qualcomm’s latest chip, the Snapdragon 810, has suffered with overheating problems. This led to Samsung deciding to switch to their own brand of processor, which is said to be their most advanced ever.

Smartphone models such as the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro and the LG G Flex2 are to be released in the coming months and will contain the Snapdragon 810, with LG saying that they will take every precaution to avoid any overheating issue.
