Google ad says Rogers Samsung Galaxy S III to have both LTE and Exynos processor

0. phoneArena 09 May 2012, 17:39 posted on

A Google ad for Canadian carrier Rogers could be interesting, or it could just be a mistake; the ad mentions that Rogers version of the Samsung Galaxy S III will not only have LTE connectivity, but also feature the quad-core Exynos processor under the hood...

No... Actually, It's Qualcomm's monopoly power issue.

I could see samsung putting in their Exynos 5 Dual processor (the one that is clocked at 1.7-2Ghz and offers nearly 2x the performance than their other dual-core Exynos at the same time using less power), but not an S4 processor. If Samsung does put an S4 processor in the US versions, then I won't be getting this device.

Completely agree with you man, that's what the difference maker for me is as well, if its not exynos, then I'll grab the new evo, or wait it out to see what windows 8 or bb 10 have to offer

Uhm...

LTE using Exynos, I don't think so! (I don't buy it, (the article))

If this news comes true, then its supposed to be sell by ATT as well.
(But there's no such info regarding of the LTE+Exynos, not yet)

It's nice to dream

Since many new Contributing Authors recently are part of FA, now there are so much info, but not necessary true, just rumors and speculations. Just saying!

Exynos can do LTE just not US carrier's LTE as the spectrum license to them by the FCC is different than that assigned in their geographic government regions.
Not sure if Korea's on FDD-LTE or TDD-LTE but they're not likely to support the same frequency bands in the Exynos chip.
700MHz
800MHz
1600MHz
1800MHz
1900MHz
2500MHz
2600MHz
A world phone (and the modem/dsp) would have to support all of those.

What about T-Mobile USA's 1700MHz/2100MHz?

My understanding of a world phone would opperate anywhere in the world, on any carrier. Or are there limiting specifications to this outside of possible no-LTE compatibility in some locations? Please elaborate so I can understand more, if capable please.

A world phone that is sold in the US, just means it has international frequencies.

The only phones that work on Tmobile are either Tmobile branded or are Pentaband to support the main 4 (quad) bands that the bulk of the world uses, and the extra (makes it penta) band that Tmobile uses which is the 1700/2100. Now if your lucky enough to live in one of these areas that Tmobile is adding 1900 to as well, then ur compatibile with most every GSM phone.

Thank you for the clarification!

I live in an area where we get T-Mobile USA's HSPA+ 42Mbps (despite not very many phones that are out that are capable of this). Is that an easy way to tell that my area has or is adding 1900Mhz support, or is that a question for one of the local T-Mobile retail locations?

Wasn't Samsung working on an upgraded dual-core Exynos with the A15 architecture? Maybe that will have LTE capabilities, and will be released in the US

Well...may be canadian carrier is touting hspa+ capabilities as 4G

14. MrNobodyWTB (Posts: 27; Member since: 03 Jan 2012)


Could be. I always hated that some carriers are able to market HSPA+ as "4g" as in 4th generation, not the 4g "specification" that is now marketed as LTE.

The ITC or whatever they are called ruled down that HSPA+, Wimax and LTE are all "4g". Peeps just need to get past that.

Telus Bell and Rogers have all had LTE since around September last year. And all carriers will be getting the S4 version. It is a typo.

I have a brother in Toronto, and Rogers tried to sell him a 4G LTE GSM RAZR xt910!
i know better, only verizon has an lte razr xt912, not gsm xt910. On the fine print however, it only says 4G Moto Razr, not LTE! There is no such thing as 4G remember?
Rogers uses it as a marketing gimmick for hspa+

aaaannnd now im mad. but seriously, if anyone's been up in canada, Bell and Roger's prescence is really scary. They basically run the country up there, they're practically omnipresent

I may be wrong, but doesn't apple use Samsung's chips for the iPhone and therefore the upcoming iPhone may have problems with LTE connnectivity as well

Well, the good news is that Rogers LTE bands are the same as at&t's so i guess i better start saving some money to import the phone...
