That's the thing: is it actually the launch, or just the announcement? Considering it hasn't even officially been announced yet, I can't imagine they plan on releasing it for at least a few more weeks. Either way though, the next 24 hours are going to be hard to sit through!

I am getting the impression that Samsung is building there business middle after Apple so exspect the release to be within days afterwords. Wellexcept for America wich will get it probably by the end of the year again. Sucks we won't be getting the exnos chip I hope that is not true. I heard it does support LTE. And I heard it don't. Truly krazy if it don't as to why not.

If it launches in the U.S. with the S4 chip, it will be a huge letdown. That would be like a GSIIS.

Maybe you have not seen the reports on the S4. Unbelievable power with battery sipping performance. Blew away the quad core Tegra 3 all across the board. I was among those who was initially let down by the S4 in the HTC One X and Evo LTE but after seeing the performance, i'm a believer and actually hoping it has the S4.

Regardless, Snapdragon has never lived up to Exynos in real world testing or benchmarks. Even if the S4 is a good chip, it's still a let down in comparison.

Blew away? You mean got blown away in antutu and cf benchmarks while basically getting the same scores in quadrant/sunspider.

Go do some research again.

And it did it all while using way less battery. That is a pretty big achievement. Remind me again why I should want the Tegra 3? Maybe the Exynos will be better but it is built on the same platform as Tegra 3.

You are wrong.The S4 chip it's much superior to the Exynos 4 Quad or 4412 even being quad core. In relation to K3v2 of Huawei this Samsung processor it's similar in performance which being like that it's inferior to Snapdragon S4 even being a S4 dual core. In the Linpack benchmarck the result must be half of the MSM8960 almost certainly. Samsung Galaxy S III only would be superior if it had the Exynos 5250 Arm Cortex A15 dual core. If the Exynos 4 Quad had a frequency of 2GHz then there would have a similar performance or even higher.

what would make the S4 chip superior to the exynos 4?

don't listen to this guy he probably thinks that s4 is yet another dual core chipset. Maybe he has no idea of what is the real power of S4 and how much battery friendly it is
Just don't listen to this loser, he probably just looks at how the device looks in the paper specs not how it performs

If i would have give him a octa core processor with the old processor technology that was used in the HTC Dream and the other one having 4 krait cores of the S4 then i am sure he would go with the 8 core one. what does this define, he has no idea of any technology just bragging by just reading the specs

i just hope the rumors of the S4 chip to the US vesion isn't true

If it be, what is the problem? Almost certainly it's better the Exynos 4 Quad. THis Exynos processor it will be a deception if it not be at 2GHz of frequency, unless 1.8GHz.

The bad news is that I'm getting an SGS2 in a month.

The good news is that the SGS2 is still going to be awesome no matter what, and will omfgown anything that Apple puts in October. :)

It depends on which model though. I pray for your sake it's not one with an S3 chip instead of an Exynos...
