    [Rumor] Galaxy S4 Will Come in Two Variants; US = Snapdragon 600 & Europe = Exynos 5


    Here's a disturbing rumor for you Wednesday afternoon. Supposedly, according to a source at JP Morgan, the Samsung Galaxy S IV will be coming in two different flavors. The European version will come with the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa-Core Chip, while the North American version will instead come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chip. Here's a quote with some of the details,

    The latest snippet of info comes from a Taiwan-based analyst of the JPMorgan brokerage firm. In a note to clients concerning TSMC (the chip foundry that manufactures Qualcomm’s chipsets), Rick Hsu says that the he expects Samsung to offer at least two distinct versions of the Galaxy S4. One version will be equipped with the Samsung-made Exynos 5 Octa processor and will be made available in the European markets. The other version, bound for North America, will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor.
    While this news is obviously disappointing to U.S. and Canadian consumers, this would be exciting news for European consumers. However, it's also possible this info is completely bogus. It flies in the face of several previous rumors that Samsung has delayed the launch of the Exynos 5 for a future device. In one regard it is a move that Samsung has done before. In fact, the SGS3 is a perfect example in which Samsung brought the Qualcomm version to North America, but brought the Exynos version to everyone else. We suppose that this could be true, if Samsung is simply having yield issues with the chip and had to limit it to certain global markets, but we certainly are crossing our fingers that this intel is wrong.

    Of course we will be watching this closely for any new leads and report back ASAP!

    I'd wish they'd use the Snapdragon 800 instead... :/ I guess I'll have to import it from UK.

    That is if the rumors are correct.
