The upcoming high-end SoC is right on track and devices that use it will hit the market in the first half of 2015, say Qualcomm officials.

The upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC is the company's first chip made using the 20nm process technology, so technical issues are more likely to occur than usual. Last week we heard about various problems that insiders mentioned may even delay the launch of the processor and also of the flagship devices expected to use it. These technical issues include memory and GPU bugs, as well as overheating problems.

Fudzilla contacted Qualcomm and got the response most were expecting for - Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 will be on the market in the first part of 2015, as expected. Jon Carvill, Qualcomm's Senior Director of Public Relations, declared "I can tell you that everything with Snapdragon 810 remains on track and we expect commercial devices to be available in 1H 2015."

Fresh reports reveal that Samsung is working on an updated Note 4 phablet that will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC. Other devices that are expected to use this chip include the next-gen Galaxy smartphone and the LG G4 phablet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
