Samsung Galaxy S 4 with Snapdragon 600 or Exynos 5 Octa: here is what market gets what version
The Samsung Galaxy S 4 might have not surprised us with a new design or much of a revolution elsewhere, but it is a solid evolution over last year’s Galaxy S flagship.

What you might still wonder, though, is which version of the device is coming to your country. We already know that in the United States and the United Kingdom, the Galaxy S 4 will come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 chip. Most of Europe will also get a Snapdragon 600 version of the S 4, but for Asia the device will ship mostly in its Exynos 5 Octa version.

Now, the Snapdragon 600 comes with the new Krait 300 processor clocked at 1.9GHz, while the Exynos 5 Octa has the clock set at 1.6GHz.

So with that in mind, take a look at the different model numbers and what they signify. There is no information about Latin America yet.

Very curious to see a benchmark comparison of the Snapdragon vs Exynos. I'd be fine if they were close. Then battery life would come into question too.

600 = better performance octa = better battery


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

S600 is half A9 &A15 E5410 is A15 So A15 is way better than even the S800, but that's when clocked at 1.8Ghz ®

You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about! You seem to be totally confused as to which processor has what architecture. Folks, this is a good example to not believe everything you read

Did you even read the list?

Course I did. But last year they introduced the Snapdragon version (US version) later during the year in UK along with the Exynos version. So, was wondering there may still be a chance that they might release a Octa version on PAYG where LTE is not an issue !

First, it's LIBYA not LYBIA. Second, LIBYA and EGYPT are Asian countries. Third, Russia is in Europe. Fourth...I could go on with this all day. It's nothing worth mentioning and I know I'm being an asshole here, but, c'mon, have some respect to your grade school teacher!

Actually Russia is in both Europe and Asia. Also, the last time I checked, Egypt is both Asian and African and Libya is only on the African continent.
