Samsung Galaxy S4 to have quad core in US and UK, not oct

Samsung's Galaxy S4, the amazing device due out in the upcoming weeks, will feature a quad-core processor instead of a chipset bearing eight processing cores.
Samsung had kept us guessing when it first announced its Galaxy S4 in New York last month, saying only that in some regions, a 1.9GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 series processor would rev the GS4's engines, and Samsung's own 1.6GHz eight-core Exynos 5 Octa silicon would take care of others.
Samsung a few days earlier aanounced that Certain markets, including the U.S., will get a 1.9GHz quad-core chip powering their S4, while other territories would get an octa-core Samsung Exynos 4 chip at 1.6GHz.
 And now Samsung has this confirmed that UK consumers will also get the quad-core Snapdragon 600-powered Galaxy S4, rather than the octa-core Exynos 5 variant

In a statement, Samsung said:
Samsung Galaxy S4 is equipped with a 1.9GHz Quad-core AP or a 1.6GHz Octa-core AP. The selection of AP varies by markets. In the UK the Galaxy S4 will be available as a 4G device with a 1.9GHz Quad Core Processor.”

It’s not yet clear which other markets will see the Snapdragon 600 rather than the Exynos 5, but given that the Qualcomm chip is one of the fastest available – and will also ship on the new HTC One, eventually – the S4 will still pack a hell of a punch either way.
