Two versions of the Galaxy S 4 are in the cards - one with 1.9 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, which will grace US carriers, and one with Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa internationally...

Octacore ain't happening on the U.S. edition GS IV. Rumor has it that Octacore smokes the S600.

That is why IMO, the U.S. version of the GS IV is really a GS IIIS. I am waiting for the Note III, thank you.

i know it will be a great phone. the only reason i wont get it is because i dont like touchwiz myself, or the design. personal opinions aside, it looks like the iphone lost a few more customers

Hey, can you link me to any stories on the screen being a Green PHOLED? I was hoping but I haven't seen any news coverage so far that's confirmed it. REally the thing I care about more than anything is how this new screen performs.

Nokia is being let down by Windows. Nokia has given everything , damn good touch screen, great build quality, stunning low light performance camera. Still I won't prefer it , because of WP8,for light usage tiles are ok. But when u install more apps, u can't keep every app pinned on homescreen and to find a app from a jungle of list.There is no dedicated notification center, that's a huge letdown. U can't just see the tiles for every minute or so for new notifications na.

Since I'm a pround owner of the Note II, I'm waiting on the Note IV, with the hopes that the screen size will be under 6 inches.

besides what you said,
GS4 is the first one to have gorilla glass 3rd.

@medicci37 - Granted HTC looks and fills better, but the non removable battery does limit the HTC one when you are installing custom roms. Don't get me wrong HTC One does look great, but HTC been known to get slower updates. If you are willing to wait for a more powerful chipset, wait for the snapdragon 800 series or Tegra 4. Those two chipset is going to benchmark faster than exynos 5 octa chipset because most apps does not even use more than 2 cpu cores and the operating frequency on the exynos 5 is just too low to compare. Just another thing i want to mention is that exynos chipset generally takes more power to run that is why Samsung went with two quad chipsets in a attempt to save power. One arm 7 based and one arm 15. So, in general daily use it will be slower because the system is using the out of date arm7 chipset.

What!

This post is insane brother... Touchwiz? Huh? What? How can you have a galaxy phone and not run a custom rom? Why would you use it under any other circumstance.

Buy an Iphone bro.

The hardware on this phone alone is reason enough to get it.

Is there any gs4 with exynos octa benchmark test ? The tegra 4 seems better than this tegra 4 scored 16000 on quadrant and 36000 on antutu

This test is an example of how Sammy is splitting their market up (U.S. vs. everywhere else). It may not be the smartest move for them. The video's tests were run on the S600 chipset. If the Exynos 5 Octa chip smokes the S600, U.S. sales may suffer. If the VZW edition of the Note III features the Exynos 5 Octa chip, I may swap my Note II for the Note III. But I am definitely not going to be buying the GS IIIS.

Sammy may have been right to not want to name the new phone the GS 4 (bad luck and what-not)....

exynos octa won't smoke snapdragon 600 because of 1 very simple reason, they just can't up the frequency of the chip high enough because it will drain your battery in mere hours...I read somewhere that A7's are actually clocked at 1,6 and that A15 are at 1,2, but i also read that A7 cant go higher than 1,2...so who knows

"The Exynos 5 Octa side is a bit more interesting. Samsung is calling the SoC a 1.6GHz Octa-core part, but that appears to be the clock speed for the four Cortex A7 cores. The four Cortex A15 cores will run at up to 1.2GHz, which should help keep power consumption manageable"

Listen,

At least half the people (Im sure the figure is more) that would purchase this phone in the U.S have no idea what CPU stands for. Or what the CPU does. They simply want the phone because its new, its shiny, its on TV and their friends and coworkers have it.

Dont give this too much thought.

Will definitely buy the Octa-core version, that will smash all benchmarks. All the software features are amazing, Plus hopefully a Wolfson Audio codec for sweet audio quality

Don't be angry cos the iphone 5 is far into the distance, the Iphone 5S will still have your puny little less than HD display at the so called "RETINA" display(326ppi), People are talking about 1080p display now with north of 440 ppi ok. Iphone is a toy compared to those beasts, we are ANDROID and we rule!!! period!

What does smash all the benchmarks do again? All the software features are great. Yes, but they're "software", which means with the magic of XDA. Everyone can have that software features.

Having it out of the box for the public is entirely different thing from porting it on XDA, as for the benchmarks, i just like the high scores, not that it matters in real world

Not only that, but we have recently pushed the boundary for all existing PowerVR Series5XT GPUs with a new series of API extensions which include OpenGL ES 3.0 features like MRTs, occlusion queries, seamless cube maps, sampler access from vertex shaders, floating point textures, GLSL full-precision floating point, R and RG textures, min/max blends, and multisample render buffers. We expect to see developers taking full advantage of all these added features soon, as they provide a valuable differentiator for our semiconductor licensees and OEM partners.

Magic of XDA? LMAO! Seem like you don't go on XDA often.
Do you know why "softwares" like MultiWindow cannot be ported to other non-samsung devices? Because it requires TW frameworks to work!
