Samsung Galaxy S4 with Snapdragon 800 clears Bluetooth certification
posted by Victor H. / Jul 25, 2013, 9:06 AM
Now, the Galaxy S4 is about to get a third major release under the codename GT-I9506. So far, intelligence points out that the device will target markets outside Samsung’s home of Korea.
That of course will be the most sensible choice for a new device, so it might be worth waiting a couple of months until Samsung releases it, if you are in for maximum power. Right below is the Bluetooth certificate of the allegedly upcoming device.
source: Bluetooth SIG via SamMobile
- Display 5.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core, 1900 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2600 mAh(17h 3G talk time)

What do you mean "why"? Because the SD800 SoC supports LTE-A, because Samsung puts the best available HW in it's top phones, because the S5 is not out for 9 months, and they want to stay competitive when rivals with SD800 hit the stores. This is great news for the consumer, cause it means you don't have to time your upgrade for fresh releases or pick up say a 9 months old HW, cause Sammy upgrades the specs in half a year. S4 owners would be madder if the S4S came out as One X+, Butterfly and One owners are mad that there's a new HTC flagship coming out every few weeks. Next up is the Butterfly S, then I bet a SD800 gadget.

That's a lotta variants for this device. Early adopters will be ready for the S5

Samsung is going to dilute their brand. That is too many variants of the S4

I'm waiting for them to release a galaxy note II with snapdragon 600...lol Then they will release the Galaxy Note III with that exynos extreme octa bullsh!t (great chipset, just a bit unnecessary to release it now considering we don't have any optimized apps to take advantage of the power)..... I hope Google can really slow down the cellphone market because we desperately need it. But I do applaud Samsung for trying to fit every mold....my Issue with is that in some segments of the device ranges, they have 2 or 3 devices with specs that are extremely similar....

I don't understand why people are bitching about having more choices.

Nothing about the phone changes, aside from the processor. The hardware won't take advantage of the Snapdragon 800 either. So it's really just there to look prettier on benchmarks. There's no 4K compatibility for outputting, no USB 3.0, and no mainstream LTE-A growing outside of a select market(s) in Asia anyway. The real processing, graphical and power saving capabilities will start coming next year with the new ARM v8 22 nm SoC; maybe taking advantage of all compatible hardware capabilities at that point; this chip in its current form, is just a stepping stone for what lies ahead.

No offense but I doubt they really care. As with all OEMs, $$ do the talking.

I did have 1 for a week. It truly did lag,it's possible that's the reason for the s800 upgrade I loved the s2 and s3, it must be all the little touch wiz features, but it did lag. So... Took it back and got a LG OPTIMUS G Pro, not as feature rich, but love the larger screen and zero lag.
