Early Galaxy S4 adopters in Korea miffed about the launch of a Snapdragon 800 version with LTE-A

The one-percenters, or those who had early access to the Samsung Galaxy S4 on its home turf of South Korea, are now getting angry in their turn, as the rumored S4 with faster Snapdragon 800 processor and LTE Advanced download speeds is fast approaching. It might very well be this mule you see on the right , that was snapped by a blogger last night at Samsung's Premiere event...

What about the browsing speed? How fast will that be, like intel i7 speed on Laptops....? I hardly download, but prefer faster browsing and opening web pages with heavy Flash! I'm really happy with the Octocore version! In the coming months there will be lots of Custom ROMS available, where you can have the option to just have 4 A15s active and have the options to overclock the CPU to 2.5Ghz! Tho battery would be a drain, but under volting the voltages would be like a normal S4. S800mdp reference scored 33000 on Antutu at 2.3Ghz so the e5410 A15 will score around 38000.... Aokp Asop

Any current ARM processor is far from being as fast as an i7 QM, my laptop has an i7 with a max TDP of 45W, compared to the much more efficient ARM chips which have a TDP of 2.5-3W they can't be as fast simply because of the restrictions in terms of power consuption and heat.

American consumers don't have enough sense 2 be miffed. We get everything late. & Never as good as the Asian version

That's the price you pay to be an early adopter, device envy over later iterations.

Would have been nice if they at least announced the snapdragon version before selling the S4

Samsung milking consumers' juice since the early days of milk. prepare for ultra burn. for non-korean adopters, brace yourself for the ultimate S4...mini...active...zoom...and stock flavoured. :)

prototype hiding design, dudes, everyone knows Samsung doesn't just show the design of it's phones before launch so they don't leak because they are unexpected

So where are those Fanboys bashing HTC the time that HTC One X+ is release?? so funny right? LOL

hahaha... waiting for S4 so long, but when it's coming out, it brought the same ugly design and cheap plastic. Now they make their customers angry with the new flagship just in few months. Samsung is an assh*le company.
