Samsung Galaxy S4 to come in Snapdragon 600 and Exynos versions
What’s still not confirmed – among many other things – is the nature of the processor inside the new Galaxy.
Well, Taipei Times reports that, according to JP Morgan Securities, the S4 will likely have a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor in the US, and an eight-core Exynos 5 CPU in Europe (the Exynos 5 Octa was officially announced by Samsung in January).
It wouldn’t be the first time when Samsung does something like this, as the Galaxy S III came with different processors, too: dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon in North America, and a quad-core Exynos 4412 in Europe and Asia.
Manufactured using 28-nm process technology from TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Limited), the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 is also powering HTC’s latest flagship, namely the HTC One (aka M7). As for the Samsung-made Exynos 5, this will probably be also used in the 6.3 inch Galaxy Note III.
The Galaxy S4 will run Android Jelly Bean, and should feature a 5 inch Super AMOLED display with 1920 x 1080 pixels. It’s going to be Samsung’s first Full HD smartphone. The South Korean company hopes to sell at least 100 million units around the world.
