Heres the thing. S4 for 4G-LTE uses Snapdragon-600 because Exynos Octa ____ processor cannot support 4G-LTE. It only supports HSPA+. But T-mobile networks in United states do not have 4G-LTE yet. They run on HSPA+ (regular 4G.) So the S4 for T-mobile in USA will probably be powered by Exynos-Octa processor but the others will be Snapdragon-600 just because of the network configuration. But if T-mobile has plans for introducing 4G-LTE this year, So the may be S4 will be a snapdragon-600 powered for t-mobile... Still not sure..
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2013How about in Philippines?Its gonna get the 2 version. Veey happy bout it. The real question is when will this be released in the Philippines.
Erik Engelsen, 21 Mar 2013Wtf why isn't australia getting 8 core version? not happy I guess marketing will have a easier time selling units claiming that they're 4G.
That'll draw more sales in to the public than saying it's got an Octacore processor.
You might be able to import the Exynos version though.

A friend of mine works for a belgian telecom and he says at the office they got both..
Samsung Argentina has confirmed, that here, we will be getting the Exynos version, so, maybe, all Latin America will get the Exynos version, instead of the Snapdragon 600, but to take note, the argentinian version is assembled in Argentina for Argentina, a probable date of arrival is the 3rd quarter of 2013, alongside HTC One, and in June we will have Nokia 920.
As for prices, we pay 760 US dollars for any of these, with an 18 month contract.
Yes!! UK getting Exynos model is GREAT news! I'd rather have Exynos 5 Octa and the improved GPU over 4G, which has terrible coverage in the UK anyway.
Indonesia will got
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2013Which version is better in terms of performance and battery life?I believe the I9500 is the better version sir. My opinion.
The octocore version comes to Argentina, confirmed by samsung argentina facebook page, lol
Droidtomtom, 21 Mar 2013What about Mexico in North America? What about the Central and South America? Movistar and... moreUnfortunately most people think Mexico is Central America or even South America, which is geographically wrong because we belong to North America (which is, of course, different than belonging to the USA).
