    The processor type will likely be the unnamed (we're thinking Qualcomm, of course) 1.9 GHz quad-core for the North American market, and the Exynos octa-core for the world version. And the network bands seem to be missing T-Mobile's 1700 frequency on the spec sheet, but Samsung officially states T-Mobile US as a Q2 release, so that may be a typo.

    Tear it apart hardware junkies!

    Any idea what the DAC is for either version? I'd love for the U.S. to get a Wolfson this time. Thanks!

    Did they seriously put a S4 pro in this phone over the 600?? They said s4 pro at the end of the keynote, or the 600 part of the s4 pro series? I ask because Verizon it notorious for getting a different processor and thats what version ill have to get.

    I stopped watching the reveal halfway through... Here comes the HTC one. I could care less about all those software gimmicks, I don't even use the ones on my s3. If only HTC had enough money to advertise.

    You know it's gonna suck without using it? Before it's even released even? Interesting.

    Can you explain why it's gonna suck? It's more advanced than the s3 and the s3 was 2012 phone of the year. Sounds to me like you may not know what your talking about.

    You should just wait for the HTC One+ which will have a Snapdragon 800, more storage, and will come out 6 months after the original One. Or maybe the HTC One2 (the name is still a work in progress; apparently naming devices with numbers is a horrible idea) which will get a ton of new features. By this time HTC won't care about your HTC One or One+ and will simply abandon them. You'll probably never get S-Off, so you won't be able to ROM it easily, and your bootloader will be locked because HTC really wants you to use BlinkFeed and all of their other useless features (at least a few of Samsung's actually look useful).

    I will admit that I'm jealous of the HTC One's front speakers and admittedly beautiful design. But I'm looking for a device that satisfies my daily needs. Not something that looks good. I mean, I'm putting a case on it as soon as I get it, so it's not like it matters what it looks like anyway.

    Is it really 8 core phone? Or it is still misunderstanding

    Think of it as having 2 quad-core processors (in the world version).
    When you need speed, 4 high power high clock speed cores can run.
    When you need power savings (like when the phone is idle), 4 lower powered cores can run.
    All 8 are never active at the same time.

    I know how cores work. I just wondering if it is really an 8 core cpu phone.

    Yes, but it works differently than how a quad core would work. Besides just speed-wise.

    any word on svdo? I don't want to go back to calls OR data after using my s3 that can do both. I was disappointed when the note 2 didn't have it. Being on Sprint it's a deal breaker until they get their act together with LTE. This needs to be able to make calls AND use data with or without 4g in your area. If not its a step back IMO...and a big one at that. ...well in sprint anyway. other carriers may not have this problem.

    This phone's specs look incredible! If someone drops there's, I'm taking it lol. I'll put my S3 and an IOU note for the price difference but I don't know if I'll be able to return it. J/K

    Hey Jerry, I'm hearing S4 pro and 600 from different people/sources. Any idea which quad core the US version will get?

    Nice little compare chart from Cnet:

    Too bad the Sony Xperia Z isn't on there. That appears to beat the HTC One also, but still not up to the S4.

    Are you sure about this? Sorry to act like I'm doubting you, but literally nothing pops up during a Google search for the Fusion Pro. However, I'm hoping that's true. I can easily deal with the 600 (especially if it's clocked higher) but if Samsung went insane and put the S4 Pro in it, I'm going to have to pass for something else.

    Not a problem, I had the same question myself. I figured it out by looking at what Qualcomm had posted for specs on their site and referenced that against the Snapdragon chart on wikipedia. It's the only one that matches availability and clock rate.

    From Qualcomm's site:
    The Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor targets high-end mobile devices. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor is designed to deliver great performance, rich graphics and enhanced user experience and will deliver up to 40 percent better performance than the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor at lower power. The new processor offers system-wide architectural improvements, key component upgrades and expanded connectivity options. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor features a new Krait 300 quad-core CPU with speeds up to 1.9GHz, a new speed enhanced Adreno 320 GPU and support for LPDDR3 memory. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor is sampling now and is expected to be available in commercial devices by second quarter 2013.

    That's probably it. It looks like only Cnet has the correct information so far and everyone else is wrongly reporting that it is using the S4 Pro. But I honestly think that's Samsung's fault. They weren't very clear on the specifications of the device.
