Samsung Galaxy S4 will be shipping with Snapdragon 600 in the United Kingdom
Originally Samsung’s new flagship the Galaxy S4 was intended to ship with Samsung’s very own Octa Core Exynos 5 CPU in the United Kingdom. However later after some confusion Samsung officially confirmed that people in the United Kingdom will be getting the Galaxy S4 powered the Snapdragon 600 processor instead. When later contacted by Pocket Lint regarding this matter Samsung replied by saying ‘Samsung Galaxy S4 is equipped with a 1.9GHz quad-core processor or a 1.6GHz Octa Core processor. The selection of application processor varies by markets, In the UK. In the UK the Galaxy S4 will be available as a 4G device with a 1.9GHz quad-core processor.” disappointing as that may be the chipset designed by Qualcomm should also offer similar performance, enough to defeat most of the other flagships out there. According to some official the new chipset’s offer almost 30% more performance over its predecessor and also consumes less power, so it should be more than enough for most users out there. Not to mention in real life usage you will barely notice any difference unless you intend to benchmark and compare your phone with its competition at a regular basis, also keep in mind that we don’t yet know how the Octa Core Exynos 5 CPU performs, so it might turn out to be a good decision after all. However for those intend to get a Galaxy S4 that is powered by the Octa Core Exynos 5 CPU and won’t settle for anything else, they can just simply order an international version that won’t be bound by any particular carrier.
