a funny thing about Samsung is in India Samsung always bring their best product. When sg3 was released it was with exynos quad core and Samsung sales prater confirmed me that it will be a exynos 5 octa core processor with 4g where we don't even have 3g coverage in all areas . but in places like us or uk where they have ability to use its full power they will get a cut down version. Very funny business strategy.

If I have the option I go for the better processor means the Exynos 5 Octa One. For the 4G LTE speed I can use 4G LTE Mobile WiFi.

CMon, get your act together and release the beast for all of us. We will forever worship you if the Octa is what it supposed to be. A beast that can save battery power.

Sad news for samsung fans indeed. Clone phone like xperia Z or HTC one.

No worries, just wait another year for samsung to release their S5. Then maybe .. just maybe you get your LTE support with octa (maybe 16 cores lol) haha.

False reporting. 3UK are going to be selling the Exynos OctaCore version of the S4 based on what's on their website.

This is typical Samsung, make a super powerful phone, but not enough, then start messing about with the innards to the masses who don't know better. Great ethics Samsung!

Anyhow hsdpa + is faster than EE 4g in UK on THree network..I live outside Cheshire but chance of my town getting it is Zero as far as I can see in next 2 years,,,i have fairly goog hsdpa tho..

Its the carriers they are buying them to sell and UK just got awarded 4g licences ,,but maybe Amazon,Carphone may go against this and know it will sell like hot cakes and stock Octacoe S4 prepay or sim free..

Am from Canada i want the exynos5 octa. I Have the S3 with the A15 dual core cloak @ 1.5ghz with 2GB ram. Am woth the carrier videotron. Videotron don't have Lte why did we get the dual core version. Even tough S3 run smooth with these spec I was hopping to have exynos3 A9 quad core. This summer I will order over seas to make sure that I have exynos 5 octa. Don't care about lte, 3g+ is fast also. Anybody knows a web site that will sold the exynos version?

It's has to be because of the carrier
