Quad-core Samsung Galaxy S III with Exynos/LTE combo in store for Germany
Who said the Exynos processor doesn't play well with LTE? Samsung stated that it will be trying to integrate 4G LTE in its own line of system chips, and has seemingly delivered in a quad-core Samsung Galaxy S III LTE that will sport the coveted 4G radio, destined for German carriers.
Now we actually doubt that Samsung is having the radio integrated, like in Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipsets, as it is too soon after the CEOs battlecry for Samsung to develop true SoCs, baseband radio integration and all, but this Exynos/LTE combo is still good to see outside the company's home turf, as it is also rumored to appear like that for Rogers in Canada.
The LTE radio working alongside Samsung's own quad-core processor apparently doesn't come cheap, though - pricing has been tipped at EUR 740, or about $940 SIM-free, which is pretty high up there, even if you consider that gear is usually at least a fifth more expensive in Europe than in the US. The Samsung Galaxy S III LTE is about to hit German carriers in October.
