Samsung manual reveals possible Galaxy S4 with, you guessed it, Snapdragon 800
20th Jun 2013 | 20:13
But will it make it out West?
Rumors that Qualcomm's next-gen Snapdragon 800 processor, the MSM8974, will make its way into a variant of Samsung's Galaxy S4 appear to have just been confirmed by a user manual of all things.
The SHV-E330S will also use new LTE-advanced technologies, according to the site.
So far little is known about this possible Galaxy S4 variant, and it would be pure speculation to guess whether we'll ever see a more powerful S4 out West.
One thing is certain from this revelation, though: Samsung is indeed beginning to integrate the Snapdragon 800 into its devices.
In fact, the use of the MSM8974 in the SHV-E330S makes it seem all the more likely that it will be included on the rumored Galaxy Note 3, as well.
The powerful new Qualcomm SoC supports 2.3GHz quad-core processing and Adreno 330 graphics, plus LTE-advanced and the possibility of 4K output.
Earlier this week rumors also appeared that Nokia is putting the Snapdragon 800 in an unrevealed Lumia device.
