Galaxy S III to feature quad-core Exynos chip, but not in the U.S., says Samsung exec

U.S.-bound Galaxy S IIIs won’t feature Samsung’s quad-core Exynos processor after all, according to a Samsung executive who cleared the air on the condition of anonymity. The executive told Korea Times that while European and Korean markets will see quad-core equipped Galaxy phones, America will not. Instead, Samsung will outfit those phones with Qualcomm’s dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, which the source claimed is better suited to the 4G LTE networks found in the U.S.

Samsung plans to release its Galaxy S III smartphone according to different specifications and different markets. For European customers, it will use 3G and the company’s own quad-core mobile Aps, while its own solution that combines LTE, 3G and quad-core mobile Aps will be used for the Korean version. But only in the United States, will Samsung use Qualcomm chips.
