Galaxy S 4 to carry Quad-Core Snapdragon 600 CPU clocked at 1.9GHz in the UK, confirmed by Samsung
Samsung UK has just confirmed that the Galaxy S 4 will be featuring the Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU clocked at 1.9GHz in the United Kingdom. There had been a lot of speculations about the processor used in the Galaxy S 4 as the Korean giant itself didn’t gave any official wording on the countries getting the Exynos or Snapdragon variant of the Galaxy S4, at the official launch event.
Here is the statement Samsung UK gave to Android Central:
“Samsung Galaxy S 4 is equipped with a 1.9GHz Quad-core AP or a 1.6GHz Octa-core AP. The selection of AP varies by markets.
In the UK the Galaxy S 4 will be available as a 4G device with a 1.9GHz Quad Core Processor”.
It’s still unsure if other European countries will get the Exynos variant or the Snapdragon variant. We know that most of the Asian countries will be getting the Exynos variant of the Galaxy S 4, as confirmed by our insider. We also know that Samsung is currently performing firmware tests on both the Exynos variant (GT-I9500) and the Snapdragon variant (GT-I9505) of the Galaxy S 4 in the UK. So, we still believe Samsung will be bringing the Exynos variant to the UK in the near future if not at the same time as the Snapdragon variant. We will keep you folks updated if Samsung releases more statements or we get any more information.
