According to the Korea Times, Samsung is planning to release another version of the hotly anticipated Galaxy S3. This other version will sport a dual-core Qualcomm S4 Snapdragon processor.
Previously, Samsung confirmed that its next flagship will sport its own Exynos 4 Quad, which is a quad-core powerhouse with each core clocked at over 1.4 GHz. So why would Samsung launch another version of the S2’s successor sporting a dual-core Qualcomm S4 Snapdragon?
According to the newspaper, the Korean firm would like to ensure that the S3 is optimized for all markets around the world. Since Samsung’s Exynos 4 Quad does not currently support 4G, Samsung is said to replace the 4 Quad with the S4, which does support LTE networks.
The One X sports the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip, but the HTC One XL makes use of Qualcomm’s processor in the US to optimize the handset for LTE networks. Given this fact, it would make senses for Samsung to do the same.
Of course, take this information with a pinch of salt since Samsung is yet to confirm if it is to launch a dual-core variant of its next flagship the Galaxy S3. You never know. Samsung’s Exynos 4 Quad may support LTE Networks once the S2’s successor is officially launched.
Do you think Samsung will launch a dual-core version of the Galaxy S3 for markets that use LTE networks? Give us your thoughts.
