Galaxy S III for Korea to be the firs Quad-Core LTE Smartphone
It seems like first country to get the Samsung Galaxy S III LTE with Quad-core processor will be Korea. Even though the Samsung Galaxy S III released with Quad-core processor, the device with LTE connectivity was just powered by a Dual-core processor and only international version that doesn’t feature the LTE connectivity has a Quad-core processor. It was because the processor has no support for the LTE connectivity.
Now several reports say that Galaxy S III LTE for Korea would be the first device to feature both Quad-core processor and LTE combined. The report indicates that the device with Quad-core chip and LTE connectivity will be released in next month in its homeland.
Samsung is reportedly bringing the Galaxy S III with a separate LTE modem instead of integrated LTE support for the chip. The Galaxy S III LTE released in USA is powered by Dual-core processor as the Quadc-core lacks the LTE support while dual-core processor with integrated LTE would also provide improved power efficiency, and therefore, increased battery life compared to device with separate chip for LTE.
While comparing, the Quad-core Exynose processor is not that faster than the Dual-core S4 processor that gives both power efficiency and LTE support while the new device with Quad-processor and LTE more likely to be less power efficient as well as thicker. So does it make sense to scarifies battery life for a device with so called power under the hood ? . Anyway, people with power-hungry will be excited and waiting for the device to hit the market.
