New rumour suggests US will only get quad-core Samsung Galaxy S4 (not the Octa-core variant)

2013 March 14

US Samsung Galaxy S4 future owners will not be receiving the octa-core variant, this is if new rumours are to be believed.

Yes, if the new rumours are to be believed, US will only receive the quad-core Qualcomm processor powered Galaxy S4, while the rest of the market will be receiving the octa-core powered handset. This is according to Bloomberg who cited “two people familiar with the product”. galaxy s4

In today’s mobile world, it is not really unusual for smartphones to feature different hardware in different parts of the world, but a different processor would be a significant variation (this is most especially if one chip proved to be more powerful than the other).

Even if this news hit the US recently, they actually did not mind it that much as current smartphones with quad-core processors are still more than capable of handling latest iteration of the Android OS and even demanding new apps.

In case you did not know, the Samsung Galaxy S3 US variant landed with a dual-core processor and not the quad-core processor that the rest of the world is now enjoying. If and when there is really a difference, then in a couple of hours, we will all find out about it.

With the recent Samsung Mobile USA post (Samsung Galaxy S4 teaser), the new device could have a curved back like its predecessor.

We saw different versions of the Galaxy S4 from different sources, but one of them actually conforms to what Samsung posted recently.

Again, it is only a matter of hours before the Korean tech giant finally unveils the new device via its Samsung Unpacked 2013 event in New York City. Are you ready for it?
