Defiantly one of the biggest features announced at Samsung’s Galaxy S4 unveiling was that the smartphone would run their own 1.6GHz 8-corre Exynos 6 chip, originally believed to be included in all versions of the phone, that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.
Instead the UK version of the phone will be getting a 1.9GHz quad-core Snaapdragon 600 processor.
The news was originally revealed by Omio, which was later confirmed by a Samsung spokesperson speaking to Pocket-Lint, who revealed the following in his statement:
“Samsung Galaxy S4 is equipped with a 1.9GHz quad-core processor or a 1.6GHz octa-core processor. The selection of application processor varies by markets, in the UK, the Galaxy S4 will be available as a 4G device with a 1.9GHz quad-core processor.”
What this will mean for the performance or speed of the UK version for the S4, is currently unknown.
