Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Confirmed for Galaxy S 4 in Select Regions


Well Galaxy S fans, the good news just never stops rolling in concerning Galaxy S 4 specs. Qualcomm has confirmed what we have previously reported, which is the GS 4 will be rolling out with its impressive Snapdragon 600 chip in select regions on April 26. The U.S. is most likely one of those select regions.

This is welcoming news considering some reports indicated the handsets might be shipping with the still impressive, but power hungry, S4 Pro. The 600 does a much better job at handling power consumption than its predecessor, which should make those of you worried about how long the 2,600mAh will last under the GS 4’s numerous software and hardware upgrades very happy. In fact, the 600 will reportedly provide about 40 percent better battery life.

As expected, the international version will get the Exynos 5 Octa, which is built on ARM’s “big LITTLE” architecture and consists of four powerful Cortex-A15 CPUs matched by four power efficient Cortex-A7 chips.

At least we can all take comfort in the fact that Samsung is working hard to ensure the best battery-to-usage ratio possible for its S 4 users. This will be welcomed news for users that were left very disappointed by the short battery life of their stock GSIIIs. Samsung is leading the way with its hardware and software innovations, and are backing it up by developing the integrated power to handle anything you can throw at it.

    If you look at the product codes, only the 16Gb will come with the s600, while the 32Gb will be Octa.

        I think a lot of people care, as you get a better cpu, better gpu and more storage for just 50€. That’s easily worth it(might have to wait ’til may though).
