It cannot be "Hot Chocolate" because "H" is already in use by Honeycomb. It'll be more like something that starts with an L, M, or N.

If someone was that bothered by a 'new and improved' version of their phone coming out they'd literally never be in the position to buy a new one. It's just a fact of life that there's always going to be something new a month or two down the line. I have to stay positive though, I bought a Lumia... ha ha

I know that, if someone keeps waiting for the new and improved he will keep waiting forever but can't companies at least wait like 6 months to release something new and not every couple of months?

Just switch to Verizon, then you won't have to worry about that. They release a new smartphone about once every six months. It's awesome to watch the other big 3 release phone after phone while you have the comfort of knowing you're stuck with your outdated bezel monster. Their latest 'new' flagship is known as the RAZR MAXX. Maybe you've heard of it. Same damn phone as RAZR, just has a bigger battery. Same low screen resolution. Same clunky old processor and huge bezel. Sold yet? The RAZR was released over 7 months ago. Hurry the f*ck up with the GS3, VZ. Just sayin'.

Verizon has been pretty slow this year, with no answer back to the One X/Evo LTE, no Galaxy S3 phone slated yet, etc. They were hella busy last year though, they released new phones like every month (droid bionic, droid 3, motorola razr, galaxy nexus, all within the span of a couple months).

the bionic to the razr pissed me the f**k off because it's like you could've released the slimmed down version from the getgo but, you hype up a brick for all of 2 months just to release the razr? really?

I have the RAZR, and now ICS, Clunky? Bezel monster? No, this phone is a work of art, and it will kick the living s*** out of a Nexus. And I get 2-2.5 days battery life, and that's with a RAZR 1 not the maxx.

I wait until my phone is almost completely outdated, and hardly runs. then i stretch it until something sweet comes out. then i use the 14 day verizon return policy to get any better phone that comes out in the next 2 weeks or just incase i totally hate the one i bought. ;)

This will be a beast once it was released. But G-Note 2 will put this in it's place come October..

By pure processing power this thing should be leaps ahead of SIII. Adreno 350? Quad core S4? Even the S IV will be lucky with specs like that. Hah, can't wait to see the excuse remixfa will come up against this one, if true! Snapdragon will be the most powerful chipset appearing in phones this year, just like I said.

I don't know, but Adreno 320 is quite disappointed. GL Benchmark show that it's in the middle of Mali-400Mp (in GS3) and PowerVR SGX543Mp4 (in the new Ipad), and the CPU power of quad-core Krait is quite the same as Exynos 4412 (from Antutu benchmark).http://getandroidstuff.com/lg-eclipse-4g-lte-quadcore-snapdragon-s4-adreno-320gpu-benchmarks/

Did you know what you're talking about? Exynos 4412 Quad > Crapdragon S4 Dual> Tegra 3 Quad Exynos 5250 > Crapdragon S4 Quad > Tegra sucks again.

And by the time they come out with a quad-core S4 that supports LTE, Samsung will have come out with an Exynos-Quad that has better performance than the current one and will also support LTE.

The S4 Quad will support LTE, and Samsungs next processor release will be an Exynos A-15 dual. Whether it will support LTE is unknown, considering they didn't put LTE in the first Exynos dual or the quad, it's doubtful.

you are such a fanboy troll... good lord. the S4 is pretty tied with the T3. Neither are as strong as the exynos quad. Do a little math. the Exynos is what.. 30%-40% more powerful than the S4 by most benchmarks. If you add 2 more cores, your adding probably about 50% power. IF that holds true, the CPU will be just a smidge faster than the current exynos quad. The exynos A15 dual and quad (the A15 dual's CPU will be nearly the same as the A9 quad CPU, but the A15 quad will have the same roughly 50% power increase, which easily tromps the S4's) will be out at the same time period, both with the new mali 6xx GPUs. On paper, the mali 600 series blows away the Adreno 300 series. So if all that holds true, Exynos 5250/5450 will still be the kinds of the jungle by a good margin. But at that point... does it matter? They will both be doing nearly Xbox360 graphix on the phone. These numbers games are for geeks like me and a few others. For regular people anything that's out now or coming out is more than plenty.

The thing I mentioned is the GL benchmark and Antutu Benchmark. From the score of Antutu Benchmark, quad S4 and exynos 4412 are the same, ok? Im not Exynos or quadcore fanboy, but Im a Qualcomm hater.

it wouldn't just be a 50% increase. the new S4 Pro would add a new pair of cores and a much needed and significant improvement in the GPU department from the Adreno 320. it would really be around a 75%-80% increase. the Exynos 4412 would be as comparable to the Pro as the S4 is to the 4412 but that doesn't matter because like you said the Exynos 5 and the OMAP5 should be there to compete but if Samsung doesn't get on it and bring LTE support they'll be out of the game in the US completely unless we were comparing Wi-Fi Only Tablets. if that were to happen it would just be between the S4 Pro and the OMAP5 which i'm certain the ladder would more than hold it's own. if the current time table is still accurate it should be safe to assume that the next Nexus will be the OMAP5 premiere device. the OMAP is still Google's reference SoC and it can be used on any network much like the S4 and i'm sure we'll see the next Nexus in around October-November, that's around the time the rumored Pro devices should be making themselves known so Samsung has until then to get ready for the next leg in the race or they'll be relinquishing their title to Texas Instruments.
