    I believe all North American S4s are getting the Snapdragon chip:

    Samsung officially announces the Galaxy S4 | Android Central

    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.

    Initial feedback on the Octa is it gets toastier compared to the 600. Might want to hold of to verify.

    Apparently the international version doesnt have LTE capability, which sucks...

    So when can we expect Mfg's to start offering multi-band LTE like they do for GSM on phones. Do we have to wait for the EU to catch up on LTE first?

    OctaCore will NOT support LTE, that's the way of things... I'm still not sure if I'll get the 4G version (LTE coverage in my town is VERY scarce, not to mention the rest of my country) or if I'll get the international, unlocked, 3G one...

    I'm also concerned about app compatibility... Qualcomm seems to get more support from devs than Exynos sometimes...

    Just an FYI in case you don't know. The octa core only uses 4 cores at a time. It's just a power saving feature by having 4 additional slower cores to switch to. I'm not sure how it ranks in terms of battery life compared to the qualcomm.

    It does, but it seems that Samsung turned off the LTE bands that are not supposed to be in use. I mean a software update could and they SHOULD turn them on, what's the point in having a fully capable LTE chipset if you are not going to use it.

    This is correct. People that buy to get LTE will not get LTE. It does not function with LTE.
