Samsung may use Snapdragon 600 Quad-Core inside their Galaxy S IV

Korean newspapers reported about Samsung may switch from processor to Snapdragon 600 Quad-Core instead of their own Exynos processor. The Snapdragon 600 Quad-Core processor is used in the newly introduced HTC One, it is very fast and LTE enabled which makes it very nice. Since the latest benchmarks the snapdragon is everywhere. When we read the latest rumours the Exynos 5450 has overheating issues, this is the main reason why Samsung changed this processor into a octa-core. The only problem the octa-core processor by Samsung isn’t LTE enabled which will cost Samsung extra parts space inside the Galaxy S IV. There’s a possibility for Samsung to use the octa-core processor in the NON-LTE Galaxy S IV devices. Where the LTE variant of the Galaxy S IV could use the Snapdragon 600 Quad-core processor. Samsung told the press before that they’ keep using processors from partners.

SamMobile is able to confirm both devices are still under development. We are not sure if Samsung will drop their own Exynos variant but we can see a NON-LTE firmware I9500XXUAMB9 and a LTE firmware I9505XXUAMB9.

If the rumours are true and Samsung will use the snapdragon 600 instead of the Exynos 5410 octa-core, SamsungExynos better stop tweeting making people happy for nothing!

Websites need to get their facts straight, just as it was bullshit with the Exynos 4412 that “it wasn’t LTE enabled” and how it shipped in the S3 9305 and Note 2 with an LTE modem, totally ignoring that it had a Samsung LTE modem since the very beginning in Korea.

The Snapdragon 600 is the APQ8064Pro which is also merely an application processor and does NOT have LTE integrated into it. The practical differences in regards to the S600 and any upcoming and existing Exynos is zero.

Samsung is NEVER going to use an other processor for their flagship! This is just a stupid rumor the Korean newspaper created to get attention ;)

why not the 800? same question to HTC if the S4 gonna have it, why choose the bad one? if the S4 use the 800 HTC lose another year, if the S4 get the 600 somebody else can choose the 800 and get a big market (maybe, hard but possible)

Woah let’s hold on to our horses here. There’s multiple factors of why HTC went for the 600 instead of the 800. 1st it could be production availability issue (Qualcomm or its contracted fab are just putting out the 600 right now) and 2nd power management considerations. For all we know the Snapdragon 800 could turn out to be a tablet-centric SoC who knows at this point and then there’s also development costs etc etc.
