Octa-core version of Samsung Galaxy S5 features 2.1GHz Exynos chip
Just to reiterate for those who are curious, the difference between the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and the Snapdragon 801 is that the latter supports a faster clock speed, which is why the CPU is running at 2.5GHz on the Galaxy S5. And there is one more difference. The Snapdragon 801 also supports a faster maximum GPU frequency (578MHz vs. 550MHz).
An earlier version of the Samsung infographic we showed you earlier Tuesday, revealed the octa-core variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 (see below). That version of the infographic has since been removed by Samsung.
Earlier version of Samsung's infographic included details on octa-core powered variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5

Not really everytime sammy made an octa core it got beats by the snapdragon so fast by core looks are decieving.

Of course faster with worse battery life, no 4k recording, some bugs and security holes here and there, no source code, overheating issues. But hey benchmarks matter more.

I am from India and i would like to buy the S5. But I dont want the Exynos version. What do i do?

You would have to buy it outside of India (either by going to another country or having it shipped to you) or you can check your local stores and see if they will sell you a "gray market" version.

No.. the s5 exynos version scores higher than the quad core in the benchmark test

People here do over hype craxynos. I've used it on many Samsung international models and I'm very sure I ain't going to use it AGAIN until it matches snapdragon in battery life, features, temperature (CPU heating ) and garner much neede love from developers and modders.

I have the Sprint Note 2 with the Exynos Quad and it works just fine for me. Plenty fast, doesn't get hot, and overall a great CPU, especially since the Exynos models have the Wolfson DAC, which the Qualcomm models don't have. I listen to a lot of music and the Wolfson DAC is one of the best DACs you can get on a mobile phone.
