We’re just a day away from Samsung’s big announcement but Bloomberg has published a lengthy article on what can we expect from the upcoming Galaxy S device. Interestingly, according to Bloomberg’s sources, the US version of the Galaxy S IV will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 CPU whereas the international variant will have Samsung’s Exynos 5410 octa-core chip.
This move wouldn’t be surprising since Samsung has done similar thing with the Galaxy S III in the past.
However, some new images have appeared today and it shows Galaxy S IV’s LTE model (I9505) running the Antutu benchmark. The pictured model is said to be UK-bound but reveals the same Snapdragon 600 that will be found on the US variant.
Now if all this is true, the only reason we could think of that Samsung may launch the Snapdragon variant in international markets as well. However, the Snapdragon 600 will be limited only where LTE is offered but will have the I9500 running Exynos 5410 for 2G and 3G.
Samsung will reveal the Galaxy S IV at an event in New York tomorrow.
