Has T-Mobile's web site mistakenly given the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G an S4 processor?

Has T-Mobile's web site mistakenly given the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G an S4 processor?
UPDATE: Despite what we were told this morning by T-Mobile, it appears that the Samsung Galaxy Relay 4G will indeed have a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 under the hood. So it turns out that the carrier's web site was right which should boost interest in this model. The launch date is now set for September 19th.

Earlier this month, T-Mobile announced that it would be soon launching the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G. Powering the device is a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor, at least that's what T-Mobile said when it unwrapped the device. But a quick look at the phone's specifications on the carrier's web site shows that instead of the S3, the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 is under the hood.

Although the first guess is to figure that someone at T-Mobile made a typo (perhaps based on wishful thinking?), there is always the slim chance that a last second upgrade was made on the device. As unlikely as that seems, we decided to check with T-Mobile and was assured that it will be the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 under the hood.  If we've saved even just one of our readers from buying the Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G on the mistaken assumption that it has an S4 inside, then we can rest more easily knowing that we've done our job.

that guy/girl who writes on the website has to keep track of dozens of phones. I wouldn't be suprised that he got mixed up some place in the process and 1.5 ghz snap dragon s3 sounds awefully like 1.5 ghz snap dragon s4. I don't blame him/her. after a long day I wouldn't be suprised if i made that mistake

Hey, today is only About Apple and the New and iMproved and more giGantic iPhone 4S.5. Besides, I doubt that the folks over at TMo' know the difference between an S4 and S3 processor; they probably got it confused with actual iteration models like the Galaxy S3 vs the Galaxy S2.

Actually, it looks like it does have the S4. Samsung's specs show the S4, and T-Mobile has confirmed that this phone will have the S4 processor. http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/cell-phones/SGH-T 699DABTMB-featureshttp://www.tmonews.com/2012/09/t-mobile-confirms-s napdragon-s4-chip-inside-galaxy-s-relay-4g/
