Now that the Samsung Galaxy SIV launch is behind us, many are wondering which version (processor) will come to North America. If you were hoping to bathe in the warmth of the Samsung Exynos 5 octa then you will be really disappointed.
The quad-core processor that will power the North American Samsung Galaxy SIV is fast but many are disappointed. There are many reasons why Samsung may have chosen to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 which may include North American LTE built the chip, good battery usage, good thermal design, etc.
AnTutu benchmarks show the that the new Samsung Galaxy SIV is about 30% faster than the older Samsung Galaxy SIII. The quad-core will run at 1.9Ghz which is 200Mhz faster than the HTC One and 300Mhz faster than the Exynos 5 octa (powering the offshore versions).
