Before those in the U.S. start celebrating, there is a chance that the Stateside variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III could end up with the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 aboard because of the latter's integrated LTE radio which the Exynos 4 Quad doesn't have.
Cant wait to see comparisons between this chip and w.e. Apple has to offer this summer. Either way i'm getting this bad boy I just like seeing Apple fall to Android every time they get on their high horse!
Cool. That being said, there is no way that a limited , closed, proprietor OS can be considered the best. Its almost like saying a Ford Focus is better than a Mercedes because people just need to get to and from work.

it's funny because the iphone will still be the preferred phones of people who are clueless about tech (girls, old people, and hipsters. Well maybe not hipsters anymore since the iphone is getting to common).
I will be so frisking irritated if Verizon will be left out of the exenos chips again because of LTE. I would rather have that freaking chip over the snapdragon or Tera 3 and not have LTE any day. Lte is great but most servers don't provide that great of an upload feed to utilize it al the way

I realize that the original article that this was based off was wrong, but that doesnt mean that you should continue to pipe wrong info. Its been said a dozen times over that samsung has integrated LTE into the 4412 chips. Samsung has said it was a mistake last time and they fixed it, and its been reported on a dozen times over the last year.
Exynos has built in LTE. That means the likelihood of them having to switch out chips in their flagship phone is extremely slim.
I need to do some archive digging! I know that I saw an article on PA, that was released around the time we found out that the US variant of the One X's was gonna have the S4 because the Tegra wasn't compatible with LTE, that said that not only was the next exynos processor already LTE compatible but also Samsung was thinking of making their own LTE chip to accompany the Exynos. I refuse to buy an SIII with out an Exynos chip!
