J.K. Shin: It Doesn’t Matter Which Galaxy S4 Variant Users Choose
Samsung understands that multiple processor options offered by the upcoming Galaxy S4 could pose problem to users. As announced previously, consumers in the UK and US will get a variant powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, while elsewhere in the world; the Exynos 5 Octa 8-core processor will be used.
J.K. Shin, the Samsung Mobile chief, recently assured potential users that they won’t feel performance differences between two phone versions. Based on earlier tests, US version of Samsung Galaxy S4 was responsive and speedy. It could handle task that users threw at easily. The multitasking performance was smooth thanks to the Multi-View capability.
It was previously suspected that the Exynos 5 Octa doesn’t support 4G LTE networks on the United States, but Shin refuted this allegation. The earlier Exynos 4 processor used on the Samsung Galaxy S3 doesn’t support LTE and Qualcomm’s hardware platform was chosen for US consumers. Samsung said that it has resolved the issue and we will see whether its own 8-core chip will support LTE networks flawlessly.
