The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 has been the treat to the Internet for quite some time with speculated specifications and features making rounds on the Web. Now there's more to look forward to.
While it has been speculated for a long time that the highly rumored Samsung Galaxy S4 will be arriving with the built in powerful, next generation Exynos chip, recent reports state that Samsung could actually pass up on that for the time being.
As expected, a majority of the Samsung fans and potential buyers would like to see a next-generation Exynos chip powering the smartphone. However, the recent benchmarks that have been leaked over time for the internal specifications of the new device show no match whatsoever, or even a slight possibility that Samsung could actually introduce any Exynos chip, let alone the much talked about Exynos 5 Octa.
However, a brand new rumor suggests that Samsung could be releasing the GS4 with Snapdragon 600 chips for all its variants.
"The theory does make some sense; the 600 employs the Adreno 320 GPU we've seen in these benchmarks, and the CPU's maximum clock speed fits with what they report," Pocketnow states.
"Rumors out of Korea suggest that, in spite of the Exynos 5 Octa's set of four low-power cores, power consumption is still a concern, and could be contributing to Samsung's decision to go with Qualcomm components while it works to improve its own chips."
Samsung's decision to not introduce Exynos 5 Octa or other ARM Cortex-A15 Exynos chips maybe due to the fact that it could prove a bit difficult for the company to come to terms with thermal envelope and power consumption when placed into a handset. This, per Phone Arena, has prompted the company "to use a Snapdragon chipset in the upcoming Galaxy S IV flagship, claims Korean media publication."
However, Samsung's release of the Galaxy S4 with Snapdragon 600 chips may not really be a bad thing as "as we've already seen the 600 in the HTC One give some pretty impressive performance, but this might still hurt GS4 sales, especially if Samsung can't so easily establish that its own phone is superior to its competition, running the same chips," Pocketnow adds.
