Qualcomm warns about lower revenue due to losing a “major customer”

42 sec read

Despite the fact that Qualcomm has described its Snapdragon 810 as the mother of all mobile chips, the company has warned that its chip division won’t be pulling in as much revenue as expected to the fact that a “major customer” will not be putting the chip in one of its flagship devices. This customer is undoubtedly Samsung which has been rumored to be forgoing the use of Snapdragon in the upcoming Galaxy S6 in favor of its own Exynos chips. 

Qualcomm has hyped up its 64-bit Snapdragon 810 as the most advanced mobile processor on the market, but its exclusion from an upcoming “flagship device” is causing it some financial grief. On Wednesday, Qualcomm warned that its chip division will haul in less revenue than expected in the second half of the year, in part because the 810 “will not be in the upcoming design cycle of a large customer’s flagship device,” Qualcomm said. That customer could be Samsung, which reportedly dropped the 810 from its upcoming Galaxy S6 smartphone because of overheating issues. Samsung uses an older Snapdragon chip and its own Exynos processor in the Galaxy S5. Unlike Snapdragon, the Exynos part lacks an integrated modem.
