Samsung GALAXY S 4

Samsung GALAXY S 4The recently unveiled Samsung flagship device, the Galaxy S 4 will be rolling out to different markets with different processor models. The most prominent one will be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 Krait processor which is clocked at 1.9GHz Quad-Core. It will account to upto 70% of Galaxy S 4 devices shipped according to ETNews.

They even published the list of countries they expect each processor type device to head. Interestingly, Africa, which is where I am writing this post from, will be getting the Samsung Exynos Octa-Core processor version clocked at 1.8GHz, eight cores. Kenya and Nigeria are among the countries confirmed by the source to be getting the Octa-Core version. So as usual, Kenya will be among the first of countries getting the Galaxy S 4.

Someone in there also thinks Afghanistan is in Africa, but it’s all good. Algeria, Egypt, Libya and Morocco also listed as African countries already confirmed to be getting Exynos. Most of Europe, Asia and Middle East will be getting the Snapdragon 600 version. See below full list as published by Sammobile:
