Which processor will Power your Galaxy S IV: Exynos or Snapdragon?

Posted on Mar 22 2013 - 3:47pm by Brian

Samsung fragmented its Galaxy S II’s hardware with multiple different carrier variants, each with their own SoCs (system on a chip). With the advent of the S III, Samsung has unified the design of all variants of the Galaxy S flagship–S IV included it seems–however it appears there will still be two different chipsets being used based on your regional location.

Galaxy S IV

The Exynos 5 is an octa-core processor clocking in at 1.6GHz whereas the Snapdragon 600 is a quad-core clocked at 1.9GHz. There is no telling which SoC will have the upper hand in processing power or battery longevity, but if you’re curious which will be available in your reason, here is a list for Africa, Asia, Middle East, Australia and Europe. No word on the Americas as of yet, but we have an inkling that North America will see the Qualcomm chipset.
