Dual or Quad core?
So yesterday, Samsung announced that “the next galaxy” will be equipped will the great Exynos quad-core processing chipset. Well, I have some potential bad news for you all that were considering purchasing the device here in the states.
According to an anonymous Samsung executive, when speaking to a Korean news magazine, the U.S. version of the SGS3 may have to have the dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor instead. Check this:
“Samsung plans to release its Galaxy S III smartphone according to different specifications and different markets. For European consumers, it will use 3G and the company’s own quad-core mobile APs, while its own solution that combines LTE, 3G and quad-core mobile APs will be used for the Korean version. But only in the United States, will Samsung use Qualcomm chips,’’ said one Samsung executive asking not to be identified.”
Now this processor had to replace the quad-core Tegra 3 in other phones when coming to the US. Now the S4 is not a bad processor but alot of phones are being forced to use it due to the US’ radio bands. When will LTE be able to work with more than 2-cores?
Thoughts on core changes?
