Samsung confirms LTE support on the Exynos 5 Octa processor - read the full textThrough its Twitter account, Samsung confirmed that the Exynos 5 Octa processor is indeed fully capable of connecting to an LTE network. The Korean giant's latest silicon supports all LTE bands. This announcement essentially confirms that LTE connectivity was not a factor in Samsung's...


Sort by:

In Romania the most off people want S.IV but just the version with Exynos 5 Octa processor because, anyway,the 4G services are not working.So SAMSUNG will loose if they bring the other version with Qualcom processor.

Second stop trolling, i know you are HTC One fan so go and enjoy your soda can phone instead of making lousy comments against best phone.
BTW there is no suck N7200 you mean N7100.

A7 are battery savers and they run in regular use like: making calls, surfing web, messaging, stand by...etc, While A15 are powerful ones they run in playng HD games, encoding, HD videos...etc and they beat S600 although A15 Exynos still in Alpha phase and it did beat latest Qualcomm technology. "Exynos A15 1.7GHZ > Qualcomm A15 1.9GHZ"
Most phones run on A15 will consume more battery life while SIV will have best battery life of all thanks to A7 savers.
P.S: SIII Exynos gave better battery life than SIII Qualcomm in GSMarena battery test, the difference is 5 extra hours.

So why din't they bring Quad core S3 with LTE in US?

LOL Samsung is making customers fool.

Lot of versions and lot of models with same design.

So how will Note III come?

GT-N7200 Snapdraagon 800 LTE, Octa core(No LTE)
GT-N7205 Octa core LTE

Hitech consumer will be confused. Good Job Samsung.

Awesome performance AND power consumption!

Good news, although it's a shame that Samsung didn't do more to clear this confusion up earlier. I'm more than happy to wait for the octa version :)

Battery life:
Exynos 5 Octa processor is a battery drainer, and Snapdragon is way better in battery life!

Qualcomm S600 is nothing than a gimmick.

Must be bad being a hater of such an awesome device hey?

whats with the idiots complaining about snapdragon600, its still a beast chipset and the battery is great, 63 Hours endurance...

Obviously it was easier to produce snapdragon chipset instead of the exynos...

It's like HTC ultra pixels, was harder to produce... but atleast samsung has a backup (snapdragon) if they couldnt keep up with the demand of the exynos.

This is the kind of news that I was really waiting for, so right now i think they made two versions for two reasons
-I9500 for power consuming and for those who prefer Exynos
-I9505 for Overall performance and for those who want the Snapdragon
Both of them are Beasts

I do not get these companies like Sammy and Apple and HTC, that just say "the demand is too big we did not expect that and because that we will either delay the shipping or use another processor etc."

I could believe that the delay is just a marketing move to make the consumer want it more actually like something special and he is supposed to think that it is delayed because everyone wants it.

But what with the exchange of processor and so on ? First they know WHEN they are going to release their product and know and expect at least as high demand as it was for the SGS3. But still they cannot prepare for it.

So releasing a snapdragon variant is pointless.

hey guyz even see the exynos beated snapdragon and its much powerfull and faster,,,

Sony cannot make their own chips nor htc so how they can compete with samsung,,, even they can give good performance to their mobiles,,,,,

also in htc one there was 32 gb of sammy's NAND flash,,,,,,

Samsung will rule the smartphone world,,,, king king king king

makes sense.
with the release of S2+ they were clearing up the production line, i9500 is the public beta and Note3 will be the one to kill 'em all!
