UK bound Galaxy S4 based on Snapdragon 600

Written by Slobodan Simic



Where is the Exynos 5 based one?

Despite earlier reports that the UK might get the Exynos 5 octa-core based Samsung Galaxy S4, it appears that it simply will not be the case as Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 based one is all that the UK customers will see.

According to earlier information, the UK was one of the countries that was destined to get the Exynos 5 octa-core based Samsung Galaxy S4. It was announced during the launch event in New York and again confirmed by a press release from Samsung as well.

According to current information and an official statement from Samsung given to Pocket-lint.com, it the UK, the Galaxy S4 will be available as a 4G device with a 1.9GHz clocked quad-core processor, or in other words with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset.

We are yet to see some benchmarks of the Galaxy S4 based on the Exynos 5 chip and a Qualcomm-based version could hardly be described as slow. Early information suggests that the Exynos 5 based verion might not bring any impressive performance gains but should provide better battery life thanks to its set of four Cortex A7 cores.

Until Samsung actually announces a full list of countries that are getting either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 or the Exynos 5-based Galaxy S4, we can just follow these official statements and rumors from regional representatives from Samsung.
