Posted In News - By AndroidPress on Thursday, April 25th, 2013 With No Comments »

The past few days we’ve all been spending plenty of time following the news and release of Samsung’s upcoming flagship GALAXY S 4 smartphone. Set to hit carriers in the U.S. like US Cellular, AT&T, T-Mobile and others over the next few days and weeks, but over in South Korea that 8-core model is about to be released.

In case you missed initial rumors, as well as the initial announcement of the GALAXY S 4, the smartphone packs not a dual or quad-core processor but a powerhouse 8-core chip. Called the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa 8-core processor. Using the companies big.LITTLE technology to power simple tasks with efficient slower cores, then beef up the rest when it’s truly needed for gaming, multi-tasking, streaming video and other tasks.

So while the US is getting excited for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core model to hit shelves shortly, tomorrow (April 26th) in Korea the 8-core model will hit the streets and become readily available. Surely we’ll see plenty of details, and we’d like to see those 8 cores get benchmarked once more now that this is final shipping hardware and software.

It’s being reported that all 3 Korean carriers (SK Telekom, KT, LG U+) will be getting the GALAXY S 4 with Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa 5410 8-core processor and 4G LTE. There’s a big demand for the handset and a few US carriers like T-Mobile already pushed back their release dates by a few days, and we have a feeling other regions could have a similar issue around the world.

Samsung’s expected to sell roughly 100 million of the handset over the coming months and into next year, so stay tuned for more details. Hit the links below for further coverage as well as our U.S. GALAXY S 4 Review.
