Samsung announced its new 32nm Quad Exynos 4 processor with four computing cores and quad-core graphics. It comes with 4 ARM Cortex A9s and High-k Metal Gate (HKMG) low-power process technology, so it can be used in both smartphones and tablets.
While, all of us were wondering if Samsung comes up with the same CPU for the Galaxy S III to run with, an unnamed Samsung executive claimed that, while the European version of the Galaxy S III will get the Exynos 4 Quad, US versions of the phone will go with a Qualcomm’s dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor instead, according to the Korea Times.
In the U.S., it is said that 4G LTE mobile broadband network support is more compatible with Qualcomm’s chipsets, and perhaps this is the impetus for Samsung’s decision to utilize the S4 chip, though Sammy yet has to confirm the same. In the Korea, Samsung will utilize its own quad-core applications processor and 4G LTE still. We’ll keep you guys updated; meanwhile, Keep an eye on Techsnapr during Samsung’s May 3rd announcement to find out.
