Samsung Galaxy S III to feature Quad Core Exynos

Posted on Apr 20 2012 - 12:24am by Mike Wewerka

Samsung has wanted to have a device like Apple’s iPhone for sometime and with the Galaxy S III (or whatever they decide to call it), they’re getting close, at least with speculation about its design and specs. We’ve been seeing “leaks” of its design, all of which continue to be debunked. When it comes to a processor, it’s been on again, off again, regarding the use of Samsung’s own Exynos quad-core processor.

According to a new report from The Verge, a trusted source of theirs has “confirmed,” that come May 3rd, we’ll be seeing the successor to the ultra-popular Galaxy S II and that Samsung is indeed using a quad-core based Exynos processor, which will feature embedded LTE for 4G service.

The Verge’s report also says that the quad-core processor will ship with the global version of the phone, but that some variants in certain regions may have a substitute processor, but that it shouldn’t affect the device’s overall speed. Much like the Galaxy S II on T-Mobile, which featured a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon while the Sprint variant retained the Europeans model’s 1.2GHz Exynos processor.

Sadly, The Verge had nothing to report regarding the 1080p or 720p HD resolution rumors that have been circulating for some time, but with new reports leaking almost daily, we shouldn’t have to wait to much longer.
