Features like multi windows work very well because of quad core and ram 2gb, I have note 2 quad core 1.6 GHz and 2 gb ram, 16 gb mem. Titanium grey, Switzerland!
I know s3 has dual because of lte, but now also exynos has lte!

guys read carefully the japanese version of s3 has the same specs as of the note 2 same quadcore, 2g ram but clocked with 1.6 instead of 1.4... so the s3 japan ver. specs was quad core, 1.6Gh, 2g ram. am i right?

The way i read you comment is "WHAAAA, i can't get it so i don't like it!" Like a little child crying out for ice cream and when you finally get it being stubbourn and sayinh "NoooO!"
Grow up. Developers want to advance in their currect Flagship, so what? Why is that so hard to comprehend?

Saw some comments about Dual Core.. Lets get this straight, Note is dual core for whatever version Note II is Quad core, I couldn't care less what version, SII is Quad core on int. Version only.

May be at the time they were creating the SGS III they did not have the 1.6 GHZ Quad that they have now. In Fact Samsung is doing justice to customer's who already have a S III by not launching the Docomo version worldwide.

Do you live in Japan, then congrats if you like the new specs. Otherwise, SGS3 i still the best, along Note 2. So there is no reason to be mad!

I think its good to make a few partial improvements within the life cycle before a major model change.

Every improvement in the model in Japan takes us a step closer to get it in the rest of the world. Before Xmas.. or after Xmas. Just wait and see...

Why blame them? 2GB of RAM and 1.6GHz might be a Apple patent, that side of the world.
