Y they do this all the time? Exynos for the international and Qualcomm for the US. But the US Note 3 will get lucky i guess, like last year.

The same specs in a 4 inch device would be the THING, don't really care about 4-8-16-32000000 cores, just make it high end (not the highest).

There are people out here who like to use their phones with only 1 hand (otherwise why not buy a tablet).

And if that 4 inch "thing" would accidentally have a HW keyboard to ... well then ... You have a new customer.

And if that 4 inch "thing" with HW keyboard would accidentally have a battery that could last for 3 days (with normal usage) ... You got yourself a huge number of customers.

But really, spare out camera, front camera (either way these the gadgets of those customers who call their small 5" TVs phones, if I want to take a picture, I use my ~100 euro digital camera which takes waaaaaay better images then any of these phones with tera and petapixels)

Also, even though the Qualcomm processor sighted for the US version is powerful its probably not going to be a match for the Exynos 5 Octa (Octa - meaning 8 core). That Big.little architecture is more than likely going to be much more powerful in all departments and especially in graphics output as its using one of the latest ARM based GPU's.
So really, its the Exynos chipset that's the big step up as opposed to Qualcomm's chipset.

Im bet that.....s4 eynos5 will be cut cost version seems its use samsung chipset....
But the s4 snapdragons 600 will be real contender.
New hd games most optimized with qualcomm but not samsung.
Galaxy s3 run games like moderncombat3 lagg like turtle and im going replace it with nexus4.
So sammy fans .....your beloved exynos is grounded....
