U.S. consumers will miss out on the Exynos 5420 with the Samsung Galaxy Note III

U.S. consumers will miss out on the Exynos 5420 with the Samsung Galaxy Note III
A published report on Thursday thrust a dagger through the heart of U.S. consumers who were hoping that Samsung's Exynos chip would make its way inside the U.S. version of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III. The report states that there will be two variants of the Samsung Galaxy Note III. The SN-900 will offer 3G connectivity and will be powered with an Octa-core 1.8GHz Samsung Exynos 5420 with the ARM Mali-T628 MP6 GPU. The other model, the SN-9005, will have 4G LTE connectivity and sport a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The Adreno 330 GPU will handle graphics for this variant of the phone. The good news is that both models will feature 3GB of RAM.

So which model will your hometown be getting? While this information is incomplete and subject to change, right now it looks like the U.S., Australia and some other countries will get the Galaxy Note III with the Snapdragon 800 working hard under the hood. Some regions will be getting both. In the U.K., Carphone Warehouse will sell the Exynos powered model while other carriers and retailers will be offering the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 flavored phone. The new Exynos 5420 offers a 20% boost in processing and twice the graphic capabilities as the previous Exynos silicon.

Before we wrap this up, we must confess that there is actually a third variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note III, but it is going to be available in just one country. The SN-9002 will be found only in China and will have the same specs as the SN-900 with the addition of dual SIM slots. The Samsung Galaxy Note III will be unveiled by Samsung on September 4th in Berlin.

well, you got overheated chip (from both variants), then it simply underclocks . so, why bother.

Since it's still more than enough speed and performance for gaming and multitasking, I"m actually excited about the SD800 and it's quickcharge 2.0 feature.

Actually, rumor is it is at least 10% bigger battery. And the Note 2 battery is as big or bigger than battery in the Sony xperia Z ultra.

wtf samsung I thought the note line was supposed to be where you take a chance and wow us with something not more of the "SAME". The note is now nothing special: first there was the pathetic battery boost of only 100mah which is not enough for the adreno 330 as shown with the lg g2 battery test. Now you can't supply us with the exynos chip--- so what's the excuse this time? can't make enough??? I can't wait for sammy to take another hit on their stock price for this blunder... didn't they learn when the s4 failed and got hit because of low sales??? sighhhhh shaking my head

don't buy-simple? I thought it was important to voice out what shoudl be and not just what is. Its people like you and your answer to just look the other way that will stun growth. If you never complain we would still be burning candles for light
