    Default U.S. Variants are rumored NOT to receive Key Lime Pie Update.

    All of the U.S. Variants of the S3 are rumored not to receive the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie Update due to the lack of a quad core processor. Only the international version of the S3 will allegedly receive the next update....Any Regrets?? If true does this make you lean towards the s4?

    And the source of this rumor is.....?

    I learned a long time ago not to worry about rumors, especially unsourced ones. Given that the S2 has already gotten JB, in spite of it's lower powered processor, I still expect the S3 will get KLP. If not, and I really want it, I suspect there will be KLP based ROMs for the S3. If it's really a hardware limitation, well, my S3 will continue to do everything it does today, which I hardly consider unacceptable.

    Not buying that rumor YET. They said in the past that certain devices (older Galaxy S) units wouldn't get Gingerbread, that happened.. Then they said similar things with ICS ...

    If the demand is there and the carriers want it, Samsung will provide it if its possible..

    Think back to the Nexus S 4g (Samsung) on Sprint.. It started on Gingerbread, made it to ICS and even got official JB.. Nobody though it would ever make it that far but it did and it handled JB (single core processor) just fine.

    I can't help but think the same people who start these rumors are the same ones who benefit monetarily from new phone purchases.

    I'm not quite as cynical as that. Almost, but not quite. I'm curious as to whether the OP will come back and give us a source, or whether he's just a troll.

    If this were true then I guess us lucky nexus 10 owners are S.O.L LMAO yea sorry but I doubt that the nexus 10 is dual core I mean it's a badass dual core but still and it'll be getting KLP and many others to come so I doubt Sammy will leave us hanging besides all the googling I've done say all variants of the S3 will be getting KLP so I'm pretty sure the OP was trolling

    I learned quickly not to listen to rumors about the smartphone world, just supplying the article the OP may have been looking at.. There are several others just like it..

    Again this makes no sense they wouldn't make the nexus 10 the way they did if it wasn't able to get the updates uh duhh hello it's a nexus device and dual core as well so this is definitely a huge f-ing rumor to be taken not seriously at all if it's any way true then it's on Sammys end not googles and if so then I'm taking my 3 day old s3 back and getting the note 2

    Very unlikely. Performance wise there is no significant performance difference between the two chipsets.

    Don't believe everything you read online.

    Keylime pie isn't even out yet. We will get it, but not before the s4 gets it.

    That's for sure. Some blogger somewhere posts something he thinks he heard, or even just made up, and before you can say "Bob's your uncle" it's been copied by the rest of the blogosphere without the slightest effort at verification or attribution. Then the supposedly "reputable" web sites pick it up because it's been repeated in so many other places.

    Go back just a few weeks, and see how positive the blogosphere was about the features of the GS4, and how many of them turned out to be incorrect.

    Maybe, but the S3 got upgraded to JB before the S4 was released.

    Exactly. Drives me nuts when the reputable sites fall for it too.

    You do realize it's called a RUMOR for a reason, and not a fact....

    I' betting we will have KLP by 1st Quarter of 2014. And there will be MANY KLP based ROMs out wayyyy before then.

    With this just hitting today. This makes this post even more of a joke/unreputable.

    If the GS2 is getting JellyBean, we will get KLP. May be a WHILE before we get it, but I am almost certain we will sooner or later.

    I read the article and I am just not buying it. Samsung gave the U.S. GS3 2GB of RAM to future proof the U.S. version. It would not make sense for them to stop at 4.2.2.

    Sammobile is reporting it now too->

    It's mainly an article on tablets but the bold red section says smartphones based on dual-core.
