Most Samsung Galaxy Note III units to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chip?
The date is set, the specs are all but confirmed, and we even heard chatter about color variants. The Samsung Galaxy Note III should see the light of day at the September 4, pre-IFA 2013 special event, in Berlin.
According to recent reports from South Korea, the first four million units to be shipped will be equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor, instead Samsung’s own, octa-core (dual-quad-core) Exynos 5 CPU. Furthermore, from a total volume of 100%, the report claims that up to 70% of the units could be equipped with the Snapdragon 800 SoC, and only the rest will have the Exynos 5 run at its core.
Just like in the case of the Samsung Galaxy S 4, we can expect North American units to be powered by the Qualcomm chip, despite the fact that we were happy that the Note II was the first model to have the same specs across continents. We’ll definitely let you know more as we find out, and we’ll be there to bring you all the juicy details from the event.
