    Verizon's Galaxy S3's CPU Relegated To Dual Core Duty?



    The user agent profile for what looks to be Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 has been published. The UA Profile shows the device being powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 processor (Dual Core) and not Samsung's Quad-Core Exynos, which the company recently revealed to be present in the global version of the phone. Although there is no definitive proof that this handset going by model number SCH-I535 is in fact the SGS3, the specs and model number lean more towards this being the device than not. The device's SCH-I535 model number follows other Samsung product on VZW such as the Galaxy Nexus (SCH-I515), Droid Charge (SCH-I510), and the Galaxy S Fascinate (SCH-I500).

    This should come as no surprise because early rumor suggested that this would be the case, but it still doesn't take the sting out of it. Does the decision to pass on the Quad Core Exynos in favor of the S4 Snapdragon deter anyone from purchasing this handset if it hits Verizon?

    I do not see the point of a quad core for a cell phone to begin with but that's just me, but yes people will see this as a dumb down version for verizon.

    Looks like Qualcomm has a stronghold on the LTE radio front. Qualcomm's LTE radios are properly working at the moment, Nvidia had LTE isssues also with their Tegra platform, and by the time Samsung and Nvidia have their LTE radios working Qualcomm will be introducing their quad core processors "later this year", but in real life everyday smartphone usage, quad core make no difference, and from some benchmarks "geek status" the S4 dual core chip out performs the Nvidia Quad core chip, but who really cares, most people want a nice sized smartphone that WORKS. What all the manufacturers should be working on is battery power on thier smartphones, all these smartphones today pretty much do the same thing, keep you connected with your outside world on the GO, see where I am going with this, on the GO, which means battery life.

    Agreed. Dual core is more than enough for a phone. Battery life should be the main topic and now how we can improve benchmarks.

    i know it seems unneeded but i can see the need for a quad core chip if the s3 could possibly has the ability to have the to dock with a laptop case such as the moto arix. who knows it could be a future accessory thru an ota update and the extra power would allow for a phone tablet idea...? kinda like asus padfone?

    i may be a little too hopeful haha

    personally i wish verizon would leave their noses out of this and allow the american consumer to have the best hardware available at an affordable level. who cares if it seems unnecessary, i think it would be better to buy the most advanced hardware just so it can stay current and up to date in a year or 2.

    An article from The Verge claims that the dual core S4 Qualcomm processer found in the One X is better then the European quadcore cousin.
    With that being said, having the S4 processor in the SGS3 may not be a loss but possibly a gain.

    Meh, I know it's mostly meaningless, but if the SGS3 has dual core I might just settle for a discounted Maxx when the time comes, probably buying it off of Craigslist. I made the mistake of buying outdated tech that just launched when I bought the Thunderbolt, I don't know if I want to do that again.

    my take on the subject is that, yes the dual core chip is probably all that is needed. however why is it that american versions of phones, not just the sIII but also the recently released oneX on at&t, get the dumbed down version. I understand that it may be due to radio issues however, if that is the case dont try to sell the phone for a similar price as its european brother.
