Samsung Galaxy Note 3 To Come In Exynos And Qualcomm Variants [Rumor] (Ubergizmo)
Earlier this year Samsung announced their new line of Exynos chipsets, the Exynos 5-series Octa-core chipsets that made its debut in devices like the Samsung Galaxy S4. In terms of marketing, hearing the word “octa” to describe the number of cores your phone has definitely sounds good, but at the same time the QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM) Snapdragon 600 chipset isn’t a slouch either, but unfortunately some regions got the octa-core, while other regions got the quad-core. Some were speculating that with the upcoming Galaxy Note 3, perhaps Samsung has figured out a way to get their new Exynos 5420 to play nice with regions all around the world, but it doesn’t look like that will be the case.
