Quad-core Samsung Galaxy S III with Exynos/LTE combo in store for Germany

Who said the Exynos processor doesn't play well with LTE? Samsung stated that it will be trying to integrate 4G LTE in its own line of system chips, and has seemingly delivered in a quad-core Samsung Galaxy S III LTE that will sport the coveted 4G radio, destined for German carriers...

Use LTE when you need it, use normal 3G when you don't?

lol $940 is not expensive enough in apple eyes, in my country, the 64gb iPhone 4S sells for $1100

Revolutionary iPhone5 could cost more and one of the coverups for higher pricing is already thoughtout (and there on PA) by marketing gurus ... shortage of iPhone5 due to parts and this would look a copy of so many other phones with large screen :)

So Germany is getting the same version Korea already got. Big whoop.
14. dsDoan (Posts: 229; Member since: 28 Dec 2011)
No. The Korean version has 2gb of RAM with LTE.

I felt so funny when I saw people blamed SS about LTE on S3, although that was the monopoly problem of Qualcomm.

Qualcomm owns the patents to the only fully integrated LTE/Arm solution right now and they are not liscencing it out.
Sooner or later they will get sued to push that patent into FRAND if no one else can figure out a viable solution.

This is just sad. I'm sure that the US is one of Samsung's major consumer countries and only got a dual-core with 2GB RAM, yet other countries are getting GS3 with LTE & quad-core, some also got 2GB RAM with it.

When will the US be getting quad core phones integrated into LTE?
