    Samsung is forced to use Exynos in all the S4 phones or they would be making a huge mistake.

    The Exynos is not just another chip, it's a significant change in chip technology it's a whole new concept in processing architecture and the first to use ARM's big.LITTLE technology. Samsung is claiming lots of benefits of their chip like over 70% savings in power consumption. If Samsung was to put Exynos in one version of the S4 and the Snapdragon in another version and market them as equivalent phones then they'd loose the differentiation of the big.LITTLE technology and make it appear like it's nothing special out of the gate and negate all the perceived benefits. Future Exynos devices would carry less clout and at the same time Samsung would be admitting that Snapdragon's chip technology is as good as the new Exynos technology.

    I like your points. Good argument. Not sure it will happen though. I can guess can only wait and see. I honestly don't care either way.

    If it doesn't happen then I'd guess their hand was forced due to some reason and they had no better alternative. But I guess we'll see in about 3 hours.

    Yeah I would think that Samsung wants to produce a devices with the same specs for everyone. In addition to what you mentioned above, it just helps their supply chain management and manufacturing process. Last year, it was US network LTE compatibility that forced them to give us only dual cores but bump up the RAM. I'm sure they really didn't want to do that. So we will see what happens but of course, if there are variations, we will start seeing reports of the reasons behind the differences and most likely it will be things they couldn't control as you said.

    It won't be. Those in the know have already said the US won't get the octa.

    Its coming directly from Blackmanx, and he knows more than anyone here. He said point blank that the US will not get octa.

    US gets the snapdragon. Europe gets the Exynos, with a few exceptions.

    Its the S4 pro. In other words, its starting out a generation behind phones like the one and Optimus G Pro.

    I don't think you are correct. It will ether have the same Snapdragon 600 as the One or the faster 800. That's really the question right now.

    You're kidding, right? It can't be the S4 pro. That's essentially processor suicide.

    No its the 600 look at the clock speeds. The s4 pro is binned up to 1.7 and last I checked the s4 pro doesn't support ddr3

    Thank you! I was about the hate Samsung for making such a stupid decision. I can deal with the 600. It's a great processor.

    No misprint. It is the S4 Pro.

    If they really put a S4 pro in there over the 600 thats gonna be really disappointing. Im looking for clarification on that now since the RAM speeds and clock speed don't make sense.

    They listed it as the s4 pro on The verge and I could of sworn i heard the guy say it at the end of the keynote.
