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

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.
