US version of Samsung Galaxy S4 to see higher-clocked quad-core processor, octo-core-based S4 headed overseas

Quad-core Galaxy S4 headed to the US, receives higher clock speeds versus more cores

It looks as thought the US version of the Galaxy S4 from Samsung will sport Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 processor, a quad-core part. While the US-based Galaxy S4 won't sport the octo-core processor we've heard about, the quad-core Galaxy S4 will have its four cores clocked at a higher frequency; 1.9GHz.

This means that the processor inside of the US version of the S4 will be the same as the HTC One and LG Optimus G Pro. The new Snapdragon 600 processor can provide up to 40% better performance than its predecessor, the S4 Pro. The new Snapdragon 600 SoC also includes a new version of the Adreno 320 GPU, as well as LPDDR3 memory support. The international version of the Galaxy S4 will sport the octo-core processor, clocked at slower speeds, but they will be more power-efficient.

 

At times when the smartphone requires more processing power, the faster cores will come into play, boosting the processing power with their Exynos 5 architecture.
