*The processor may be wrong though.

May be wrong. But it's been rumored that it is *NOT* going to have the OCTA in it. So it very well might have the Qualcomm chip.

I was talking about my link. Meaning that I was suggesting the SG4 WON'T have an OCTA in it. I didn't want to flat out say the "processor is wrong" because, I can't say for sure until the 14th but, I'm 99% it will have a 600 inside.

Of course it will, dumbass. It's SAMSUNG, not apple. You know, the company that actually innovates and can do something besides resize the ipod and sell it under a different name? apphail is a one trick pony and their plummeting stock reflects that.

I seriously don't believe it will come with a SoLux display or whatever rubbish has been rumoured, will have to wait and see.

I'm only guessing though...
Sammy without Amoled and Exynos sounds like they'd give up their soul

We will see...

If the screen is better than AMOLED and the processor is the best available atm I don't see that as a bad move by Samsung, if the software is great and hardware as good as usual by Samsung they will make tons of sales, using Snapdragon could mean that custom ROMS will be easier to make for it, since Samsung is notorious for having poor sources for Exynos

the leaked boot screen(Galaxy s4 LCD based) has wrong Samsung Galaxy text logo.. so it is certainly fake

the g in Samsung must be on top of the X of the GALAXY

I can't wait! Sammy you are in my heart! No other phone company can compare. Octacore anyone? Please phonearena it is going to have a octacore, correct it.

It's not really an octo core since it uses only 4 cores at a time (4 powerful cores or 4 battery saving cores). It's like saying a Tegra 3 is a pentacore because it has 4 powerful cores and 1 battery saving core.

That is not true! Sammy has promised octacore. They will deliver.

What is wrong with you? I'm not hating on Samsung & I am definitely NOT a Nokia fanboy. I own a Galaxy Note 2 & it is the easily the best phone I've ever owned. Since you are too damn dense to believe what's being said to you, here's a link. Hope your head doesn't explode.

In basic terms, it is octo core. However, only 4 cores can be activated at a time. There are 4 A7 cores (battery savers), and 4 A15 cores (monster performers). The A7 cores do basic tasks; flipping through the home screens, using basic utility apps, light web browsing (maybe gaming, not sure), etc.

When those A7 cores get overloaded however, the A15 cores flip on and take care of the task at hand; and once things have calmed down for the A7 cores, the A15 cores go dormant again.

A15 is too power hungry to be by itself, so it needs the big.Little architecture to keep power consumption at a minimum, while giving you the performance of an A15 processor when needed.

He was right, it is like calling Tegra 3 a penta core processor; numerically it is, but technically it isn't because it flips between the single battery saving core and the power hungry quad core but never uses all 5 cores at once.

The Exynos 5 Octa is numerically an octo core processor, but technically it's only quad core.

Or at least that's my understanding of it, if I made a mistake feel free to correct me.

Also, the Galaxy S4 probably won't have the Octa in it because of over heating problems, or at least that's what was reported.

Who cares. If the engineers didn't call it the Exynos 5 octa, the marketing department would have. Either way, it is the right move. It is much more convincing ploy than something like boom sound, 4 ultra pixel, etc.

Octacore just sounds beastly.
