Samsung Galaxy S IV To Come With Two CPU Options Depending On Region?


Tomorrow is the big day for all Android fans around the world as Samsung, whether you’re a fan of the brand or not, is announcing this year’s flagship phone, the Galaxy S IV. There were countless rumors and leaks in the past few weeks but we’re sure the South Korean company has a couple of aces left up its sleeve.

The latest rumor tries to confirm previous hear-say about the processor which will power the Galaxy S IV. Despite Samsung went with a standardized choice last year, with the Note II (same CPU across regions), this latest rumor seems to revisit the information according to which the US variants of the upcoming S IV will pack a quad-core Qualcomm processor. Whether it will be the new 600, the yet unseen 800 or the S4 Pro is anyone’s guess. Other regions will get the Samsung Exynos octa-core chip and we already smile and rub our hands just thinking of how the two will handle each other once compared.

The same two “people familiar with the matter” who claimed the above seem to confirm what we already know about the five-inch (4.99) Full HD AMOLED screen as well as the 13-megapixel camera, so nothing’s new here.

A feature which raised eyebrows (and was applauded by some), namely the eye-tracking-powered scrolling will be missing from the S IV, claim the same people, “though it may appear in future versions of the phone” (our note: or a future software update?)

Of course, nothing’s for sure until Samsung executives go on stage to show everything off. Until then, have your “R” folder ready for filing this.
