Samsung CEO “no difference between the 8 core and quad core processors for Galaxy S IV”


The Samsung Galaxy S IV is set to launch worldwide today or tomorrow. However, the options of having 4G LTE with quad core processor and 3.5G with an eight core processor make people really puzzled. People may wonder which one is better, which one faster or which one is cheaper. The Galaxy S IV in Hong Kong has both of the two versions and they are going to be sold at the same price ($5,898), does that mean they are the same? If so why are they the same?

Samsung CEO Mr Shin said on this Wednesday to the press that customers shouldn’t care too much about the processors of Galaxy S IV. For ordinary users, there are not much difference between the Exynos 5 Octa 8 core processor and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Quad core processor in term of the GS4. It is just that the band they support are different. The reason why they separated the GS4 into two versions is merely about demand and supply, he added that it was due to the source of procurement.

Therefore, Samsung has clarified this on the sales material putting (4+4) next to this version of Galaxy S IV, meaning that it has two quad core processors but there is normally one set of quad core working in this 3G version.
