LG seems to have resolved their issues with Qualcomm. A few days back it was rumored that the company was reportedly suing Qualcomm over their decision that they will be redesigning the Snapdragon 810 processor for Samsung on over heating claims. OnePlus has also cited the use of this controversial chipset as one of reasons for the delay for OnePlus 2. We do understand why LG would have wanted to sue Qualcomm, it would have put the credibility of the device LG G Flex 2 on line and one of the analysts claimed that Snapdragon 810 processor was causing some problems with the device.
Reports out today report that LG seems to have worked their issues out with Qualcomm as they said that both the G Flex 2 and LG G 4 will be arriving in the market on time. There will be no delay caused due to the chipset issue. The company did admit that they had an issue with the initial batch of the devices using Snapdragon 810 but they worked on it and optimized their design. LG took a swipe on Samsung’s poor designs by saying that the issue was not with the chipset over heating but with the design device and they had designed the LG G Flex 2 keeping this issue in mind.
For now everything seems sunny and sundry. LG enjoyed a growth of 25.5% in Q4 of 2014 and the company seems keen on increasing their market shares. LG G Flex 2 will launch in the Korean markets in the next few days having a whopping price tag of $700 and the LG G4 will come somewhere is summer. Let’s see if LG is able to retain and improve on their global presence in 2015.
