Samsung Galaxy S4 With Exynos 5 Octa For Europe, Snapdragon 600 For US?

The hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S4 will be unveiled in New York next week, but nobody knows exactly what the device is coming packed with. The talk about S4 featuring different chipsets for different regions is of course not new, but that rumor is still around.

According to a recent report, the Galaxy S4 might be launched in the US featuring Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 chipset, while the device’s European version will get Samsung’s own Exynos 5 8-core chipset.

As you might not have forgotten, last year Samsung launched its S3 in the US with the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset inside because the Samsung Exynos chipset did not feature LTE. That may not be the problem here since the Galaxy Note 2 is proof that Samsung does not need Qualcomm to provide LTE. And also LTE will become more popular in Europe this year, so Samsung has to provide it with the European version of the S4 as well. So, LTE may not be the issue for the company.

Another suggestion is the heat issue. But if that’s the case, Samsung definitely won’t launch a device with known issues onto any market. So, most likely the problem is related to production. Just to remind you, the Samsung’s upcoming greatest device is expected to sell around 100 million units. The company might simply be incapable of making enough chips in time.

All these are just theories though and the best thing to do is to wait for a confirmation from the company. We will keep you updated as we learn more, so stay tuned to Mobile Magazine.
