Dual-core or quad-core? In these hectic hours before the expected submission of 3 May in London, chasing rumors of every sort and kind on the Samsung Galaxy S3, also generating some confusion about what will be the hardware. In particular, it has generated much confusion about the processor: Samsung when, through official press release, stated that a version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 will use Samsung Exynos processor 4412 1.4GHz quad-core, many have warned the U.S. public.
For the U.S. market, in fact, things change: due to the spread of LTE connectivity and the lack of an integrated LTE radio on the Samsung Exynos 4412, the Korean manufacturer may decide to instead use the dual-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, as occurred HTC One X on telephone operator AT & T.
According to the Korea Times, a Samsung executive who declined to be named revealed that Samsung will use different combinations of processor and radio antennas on the Samsung Galaxy S III, depending on the country. In Europe, the device will feature 3G and Samsung will opt for the quad-core Exynos. In Korea, Samsung uses its own solution that will allow the phone to have 3G and LTE with a quad-core. Only in the U.S. Samsung will use Qualcomm chips.
