It Turns Out That Exynos 5 Octa Supports LTE Data Connectivity
It was believed previously that Samsung chooses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 solely for its integrated LTE support. But it turns out that the company has confirmed recently that its homebrow SoC also includes support for 4G LTE networks. It has been asserted recently that the chips should work in twenty different LTE bands and this should play well with the impressive benchmark results.
Samsung delivers a rundown of all the capabilities offered by the Exynos 5 Octa chip, when it was launched for the first time, including enhanced 3D gaming experience and increased energy efficiency. Many of us thought that despite its sophisticated design, the chip only works on HSPA+ network.
Now, a more likely reason for the use of Snapdragon 600 chip is Samsung’s inability to produce the Exynos 5 Octa chip in sufficient number. Now that the South Korean company has come out to confirm LTE support for its homegrown chip, consumers in Asia and Africa would be relieved that they won’t get a phone with “slightly crippled” data connection capability.
