If you have followed the quad-core Exynos 4 CPU for any time you have known that the chip hasn’t been compatible with LTE chipsets which is why you don’t get that quad-core chip here in the US. When the Galaxy S3 was announced we learned this phone would ship to the US with a dual core chip that already works well on LTE. We all assumed the technology wasn’t ready yet to allow the Exynos 4 CPU on our soil. But now a week into the release of the US GS3, Koroea is getting a Exynos 4 CPU LTE device. So why aren’t we getting it here? Not sure. Maybe Samsung just didn’t want to wait to ship these models out because of limited availability. The Snapdragon that the US model of the S3 has is supposed to be running short on supply. Maybe Samsung is saving the quad-core US version for something already in the works? Something with a massive battery to complete with the successful Razr Maxx perhaps? The LTE network in Korea is built different from all of the LTE networks here so that may be it as well. Time will tell, but i feel a little ripped off.
