Malaysia may get both Octa-Core Exynos and Quad-Core Snapdragon Galaxy S 4

Posted:  March 21, 2013   By:    14 comments   

Samsung makes two main version of the Galaxy S 4 for different markets. One packs a 1.6Ghz Exynos 5 Octa-Core processor (two quad-core processors running in sequence. One set for low load processing to conserve energy and the other for high load processing for maximum performance) and the other sports a more conventional yet still fast 1.9GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon processor, both versions will get 2GB of RAM and a choice of either 16GB/32GB/64GB of storage with MicroSD expansion.

So which version will come to Malaysia?

If this list revealed by SamMobile is accurate, we might get both versions with the possibility of the Octa-Core unit having 3G connectivity and the quad-core packing some 4G heat, and it’s very likely that both versions will have 16GB of on-board storage.

If you’re wondering:
GT-I9500 = Exynos
GT-I9505 = Snapdragon

What about availability?

The Galaxy S 4 will represent another important and major milestone for Samsung in Malaysia, and naturally reps are tight-lipped on when the device will released here but we’ve been seeing some frantic activity to know that Samsung Malaysia is hard at work to have the Galaxy S 4 in Malaysian stores as soon as possible. If we have to guestimate, things will happen before June, maybe even as early as mid April.

And the price?

Expect the Galaxy S 4 to sell for around the same money as the Galaxy S III when it was launched last year — that’s around RM2,200.

And…that’s pretty much it for now. We’ll share details once we get them. Thanks for dropping by.

cant wait for this…


I "love plastic "….


If this proves to be true, this will be the best news i've heard on the new s4. Being an avid custom rom fan since the days team cyanogenmod started rolling out their roms for gingerbread, it kinda broke my heart that exynos didnt wanna support rom developers anymore since last year. That meant there can never be stable roms for exynos products. Only qualcomm continued support n thus thats why the i9100g which uses qualcomm can be running on JB 4.2.2 n definitely KLP 5.0 thanks to stable roms.

Why is it such a big deal u may wonder? Biggest reason would be: Manufacturers typically remove firmware support for their phones after a year or two. Which means u're stuck with whatever version of android they give u up till then. The only hope consumers of these phones can get if they wanna run on newer versions of android after that would be custom roms. N u need them to be stable for better user experience. N stable only comes for mon-exynos products because only exynos arent helping these rom developers.

So, a big bravo n thumbs up to samsung if this turns into reality. 🙂


    lol…i9100G uses OMAP4430 chipset…not qualcomm


      lol thanks lol for lol pointing lol that lol out lol

      Idderes Mh

      not enough knowledge..
      that why … lost their point…
      cm no need base info..


        i agree. but speaking of knowledge:…

        "Right now the formula reads as follows:
        Qualcomm + TI = good chances for AOSP
        Samsung + Nvidia = chances for AOSP are bad to none at all"

        i think he meant exynos instead of samsung, n yeah i may have gotten mixed up between qualcomm n TI, but the point is there about anything exynos. just sharing. 🙂

    Idderes Mh

    dont talk before try..
    dif processor..
    n4 too..


      we'll, lets just hope for the best, wise man. 🙂


      it was an honest mistake. well, lets just hope for the best, wise man. 🙂


      nope.. cm_lover has a valid point based on Samsung's Exynos contribs' track record to the dev community = piss poor. And those containing Exynos are all top sellers. Yet it's the i9100g that enjoys 99% 4.2.2 experience on CM10.1 nightly builds right now. Also consider this, i9505 has another added adv = LTE hence why it's a selected variant and a much better ROI, the Exynos 5410 aka Exynos 5 Octa are w/o.

      btw smartass if by n4 you meant Nexus 4, LG could have slapped a no name China designed SoC in it and still it'll enjoy the strong dev support because… it's a friggin' NEXUS ffs -.- Nothing w/ a Nexus badge can come out w/o a guaranteed Google main support.


love notch plastic


I just acknowledged that Galaxy S4 doesn't have a radio either..


The GT-I9500 Galaxy S4 (Exynos 5 Octa) supports LTE and all 20 bands.
