Quad-core Samsung Galaxy S III to score "superlative" benchmarks, but only in the global version

0. phoneArena posted on 19 Apr 2012, 04:26

We've seen the game before - Samsung using different processors for the same phone in different regions. We've seen it from others as well, like HTC with the "global" One X with quad-core Tegra 3, and the "local" with Snapdragon S4 for AT&T...

I will, for one, be very disappointed if Samsung changes our processor just because we are in the states. The only reason that the AT&T version of the One X didn't get to keep the quad core processor is because the Tegra 3 is not LTE compatible. The Exynos processors are fully compatible. Not to mention, one of these articles on PA eluded to the idea that Samsung my also manufacture and utilize their own LTE chip in the SIII.

If this "RUMOR" turns out to be true........I predict a lot of very unhappy customers in the states!

if this doesnt have quad eynos then forget it! might as well keep the gs2. that phone is stil SOOOOOOOOO up to date and ahead of so many phones. with ICS it really flys! I actually think it looks and feels nice too.

Of course it has a global version, isn't that pretty obvious? Doesn't the fact that it's being unveiled in "London" give you a hint? Do you happen to suggest that the U.S will get it first followed by other countries, very unlikely I think. That's not how the company operates. Feel for the Americans.

I am more interested to see if the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will come to Verizon more than the Samsung Galaxy S III.

Good for me.
If I get this phone I will be getting the international version anyway.

If the SGS3 does not blow my mind then I will get the international Galaxy Note over the AT&T version simply because of the Exynos factor.

Either way I'm dumping whichever one I end up with for the Galaxy Note 2

All you people talk about is how great a benchmark are. Benchmark mean nothing when you can fake it. There are roms for the Evo 3d that use sense and is clock at 1.2 gHz and score over 5000. So am I to believe, is there any proof that samsung don't fake their score? Come on at this point in time, you will not be able to tell the different.

and what are you going to do with 2 gigs of ram, quad core and 720p? Watching porn all day long? there's no apps to utilize this power and S II is smotth enough. I don't understand and support this wild "the higher the better" competition.
Focus on battery god d^&*it!!
