A recent report from South Korea suggested that Samsung has been scrambling to fix overheating issues related to the Snapdragon 820 processor inside the rumored Galaxy S7. Qualcomm says the report, which has since been pulled, is a bunch of baloney.

“The rumors circulating in the media regarding Snapdragon 820 performance are false,” a Qualcomm spokesperson told TechnoBuffalo in a statement. “The Snapdragon 820 improves on all IP blocks and is fabricated in the second generation of the 14nm process technology. It is meeting all of our specifications, but more importantly, it is satisfying the thermal and performance specifications from our OEMs.”

Good to hear. We’re looking forward to checking out the first Snapdragon 820 smartphones in the coming months.
