There have been a lot of talks regarding Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 and its alleged overheating problems. However, despite its latter issue claims, no conclusive tests or evidence have been found to pin it officially on the processor being faulty.
It is said that a few reports have been spotted, especially from the HTC One M9, where high operating temperatures have been noticed. The issue however seems to have been fixed in the Snapdragon 815, having an operating temperature of 38°C compared to the 42°C registered for the Snapdragon 801 and 44°C reported on the 810.

Invites have been sent out for an HTC press conference in Barcelona on 1st March (above), at which it is rumoured that not only will we get our first glimpse at the new HTC One M9 flagship smartphone, but also a smartwatch, according to Bloomberg.
Bloomberg’s sources reveal that the One M9 will have a 20-megapixel rear camera, and UltraPixel front camera, and will be available in grey, gold, and silver, with units shipping not long after the press conference.
Earlier rumours suggest the HTC One M9 will feature a 5-inch full HD display, octacore 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, 20.7-megapixel rear camera, 13-megapixel front-facing camera, 3GB RAM, and Android 5.0.1 Lollipop.
Though details are scarce, the smartwatch is said to be born of a partnership between HTC and American sportsware company Under Armour.
HTC made a decent swing back into the market this year with the One M8, but it looks like its successor is being teased weeks before CES 2015, the One M9.
What will the One M9 offer? Well, we should expect Qualcomm’s latests system-on-chip, the Snapdragon 805, at 2.7GHz to start things off. The display that HTC should be opting for, looks like a 5.5″ 2560×1440 (or QHD) panel, 3GB of RAM in total, a 16MP rear camera, and there’s rumours that HTC will be using Bose for the audio side of things, which should have the One M9 being one of the best-sounding devices on the market.
