Sony released the Xperia Z4 as Xperia Z3+ in the international markets. The phone came with the same specs that were carried on by the Xperia Z4. Concerns were raised when people realised that the Xperia Z3+/Z4 will be coming with Snapdragon 810. This is mainly because the chipset has been accused of overheating, the overheating issue isn’t something that is limited to a certain OEM or a device, this is another reason Samsung decided to opt for an Exynos chip this time around, whereas LG went for something subtler like the Snapdragon 808.
Needless to say, the Xperia Z3+ showed the same signs of heating up, this confirms that the problem actually lies in chipset. Sony was quick enough to release the statement regarding the overheating issue that has concerned a lot of loyal customers as well as the users who are already using the Xperia Z3+. According to the statement issued by Sony, the problem is limited to a small number of devices and the Japanese OEM will be seeding an update this Summer to help resolve the heating issue. You can check out Sony’s statement below.
“The Xperia Z3+ is a high-performance 64-bit octa-core device with advanced camera technology, in some cases, additional heat can cause functions to stop. Enabling applications can also be felt by the user through the glass on the back. This is normal for the unit and should cause no concern.”
We’re not sure what type of software update Sony is talking about but it seems like the update will most likely throttle the CPU to avoid any overheating issues.
