It was initially rumored to use Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa chipset
It appears that Samsung is so impressed by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 600 chipset that it is willing to drop its Exynos 5 Octa processor that was supposed to power the upcoming Galaxy S IV.The folks over at Techkiddy have been able to learn via Korean blog DT.co.kr that Samsung Galaxy S IV is likely to be equipped with a Qualcomm chipset.
Although the source of the information does not name a specific Qualcomm chipset, it can only be the new Snapdragon 600 chipset featuring Krait 300 architecture.
Obviously, we should take the information with a grain of salt until more sources confirm it, but given the fact it comes from Samsung’s own country there must be some truth in it.
HTC One is likely to be the first handset to come equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, followed soon by LG Optimus G Pro and possibly the Galaxy S IV. Stay tuned for more updates on this one.
