Still, not A15. It's a custom Krait architecture, that's the point he was trying to make, he made no remarks on quality compared to true A15.

Wouldn't Exynos5 octa be the right solution since it is using the big.little configuration?

It can be a top Tizen phone or unless a phone to compete with the Sony Xperia SP maybe. Or maybe a WP8 phone. It can be any one.

If it be a phone to compete with Sony Xperia SP there be a reason for be released, because this Sony phone has in the specs a dual-core Krait at 1.7GHz, Adreno 320 and maybe 1.5 or 2GB of ram and it's natural that Samsung wants to compete in the top midrage with a Exynos 5 Dual phone. If it is a top Tizen phone i also believe that it can be. If it is a WP8 phone, also it can be, for to be the top WP8 phone in hardware but in this i don't believe so much because the WP8 only uses the Snapdragon Krait platform.

Why this phone looks like crap? It isn't a powerful hardware? Even if it isn't the S4, it isn't a powerful phone? I think you have is envy because maybe you are Apple Icrap fanboy.

if you mean the look of that picture at the top of the article take it with a grain of salt, just about every time there have been "leaked" pictures of galaxy phones they've turned out to be fake and incorrect, That picture completely abandons the idea behind the design of the S III.

Its neither sgs4 or sgn3. Its released just to threaten sales of device's powered by s4 pro.

just checked the HTC Butterfly this morning and boy thats an "ANGEL PHONE"... lol
its just gorgeous!

now that android has evolved so much and hardware getting better, its more than just the performance of the smartphone! i am very much looking forward to samsung making a device with some real nice Build quality! have been a loyal customer to samsung but im seriously disappointed by the build quality of sammy's phones now! although they are all plastic, they still weigh more than the competitors!
sammy really need to up the build quality of its products now! or they will lose a lot of loyal customers including my self, when almost 95% my electronic gadgets are from samsung!
what u guys think?

You will be lucky if you even get an a15 dual core. They aren't going to put a quad a15 exynos in the s4, maybe the note 3. The only a15 processors that are even close to being ready for phones is snapdragons.

The Galaxy S and Note series typically have the same chip, just the in the Note it's clock 200 MHz higher. They will put quad A15 CPUs in phones, they even said they'll put the Exynos Octa in phones. It isn't too difficult, considering the size that the GS4 and Note 3 will probably be; they'll just have to find a way to manage space more efficiently.

Also, the new Snapdragon's aren't A15. They use a custom architecture called Krait. The Krait in the S4 Pro quad was inferior to even dual core A15 (Exynos 5 dual), the new Krait 400 in the Snapdragon 800 running at 2.3 GHz *might* be up to par with true quad A15, but we have to wait to see.

Quad core A15 is ready for phones, it's just they're so power hungry that no one wants to put them in. That's why Samsung made the Exynos 5 Octa, with ARM's big.Little design. 4 A15 cores + 4 A7 cores = quad A15 power (when needed) without the battery drain.

They're going to be out by the second quarter of 2013. They are perfectly ready, the only thing that's not ready is the devices that they'll be in, and the M7 will be announced with the Tegra 4 this month; or at least it should, if HTC wants to have any success this year.

Again great chips by SS but that look is terrible. I know looks are subjective but for fk sake SS get it together in this very important category"

How many times does it have to be said that that is NOT an actual image nor final representation of the actual phone, it is just a fan made mockup by some very crafty Hong kong student. The model B9150 is NOT the S4 in anyway but another device. Sometimes wonder whether the folks in charge are trolling!

Mistb I get that but if YOU read under the pic it says could this be he b9150 so since that's all we have to go by then that's what I'm commenting on.. You act as though it would be a stretch for SS to use this design again... Have you seen the last two years of SS products? They are doing an apple... They all look the same whether it be the note, note 2, S3 or any of there lower range phones..and don't get me started on the lack of fit and finish that they put into their phones... I'm all for their chip sets but the phones are garbage

Well lets just say that Samsung are the Audi of the phone world without the fit and finish, photocopied designs from the top model ;) The render in question in just an impression but yes, it's like saying before the MK VII Golf was revealed we have only the cgi's to go by and in reality, they're quite off until the FEP stage. I will concede that Samsung has been using the same design but maybe they want that same cohesive look that creates a unique identity for their range that says Samsung and not HTC/Apple. Don't get me wrong, the aesthetics aren't their strong point but here's hoping that 2013 will usher some designs and materials that are light years ahead of their current range. We won't really know until we see something concrete from the source themselves.

Definitely going with the Note 3 when it comes out.. Once you go Note, you can't go back to anything with a smaller foot print..
