The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available in the market from 26th April this year in UK. But the people of UK will not get the Samsung Galaxy S4 with an octa-core Exynos processor. Instead, a 1.9 GHz quad-core processor will be available in UK. Let’s look at the reason behind it and if it is a big deal.
Samsung recently unveiled its latest Galaxy S4 at a huge press event at New York’s Radio City Music Hall. At the launch, one of the wonderful features of this Smartphone that impressed was its Exynos 5 octa-core processor. The Exynos 5 octa-core processor has got both four efficiency cores and four high-performance cores delivers generous battery-life and high-end performance.
While unveiling the Galaxy S4, Samsung had reported that the US version of the Smartphone will be available with a quad-core processor instead of the Exynos 5 octa-core processor. Samsung has also confirmed that the UK version of the Smartphone will also be available with the quad-core processor.
However, unfortunately, the new chip designed and manufactured by the Korean company is incompatible with the latest mobile networks, which means, the Exynos 5 octa-core processor is not compatible with 4G LTE. This decision of Samsung has left the people with perplexed feeling.
Now let’s look at if the omission of the octa-core processor is a big deal:
The 1.9GHz quad-core processor gives out amazing power but it probably will deliver lower raw performance the Exynos 5 processor.
As the Exynos 5 processor is more efficient than the quad-core processor, it will deliver more great and wonderful performance than the latter one. The new quad-core processor doesn’t come anywhere near to the Exynos 5 processor, in terms of being efficient. Hence, the battery life of the latest Smartphone is likely to be affected adversely. We have mentioned earlier yet again let’s look at the features so that the users can Buy Samsung Galaxy S4:
