So Samsung on its official twitter account announced that their 8 core processor actually supports 4G LTE. We found this in the afternoon and we have also confirmed with other tech websites that the news seem real. The Samsung Galaxy S IV is avaialble in two versions which are equipped with different CPU – the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 and Samsung’s homemade Exynos 5 Octa. But it was widely believed that the 8 Core version will not come with 4G LTE compatibility. Samsung kept silent for the questions towards its 8 core processor not supporting LTE.
SammyHUB counter questioned the offcial page of Samsung Exynos and Samsung replied that Exynos Octa will support LTE and all 20 bands (frequencies). Their explanation has dismissed the widespread rumours of its 8 core smartphone not supporting LTE. If both versions are going to support LTE why need to separate into two versions? And why does the Exynos Octa 5 only make appearance on 1/4 of the global market? If the only difference is eliminated, what should consumers buy?
Will Galaxy Note 3 be powered with the Exynos 5 Octa? or continue with this strange practice?
