Samsung has finally announced the much waited and the powerful Galaxy S IV. But the awesome flagship smart phone will not be made available to the public till the later part of next month. And even after the announcement, a few of the things about the smart phone were not yet confirmed, for example, the processor used in the various versions of the smart phone. But Qualcomm has confirmed the news that was rumored before the launch of the smart phone.
Qualcomm has announced that the all new Samsung Galaxy S IV will be rolling out with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor in select regions. But we are not yet sure which regions are the selected regions for this. But there is a very good chance that the United States will be one of them.
This is a very good news for a lot of Samsung Galaxy S series fans because even though the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro is a powerful chip, it is power hog as well. So the battery backup of the smart phone will not be impressive. And the Snapdragon 600 is very good at this, it manages power very efficiently. In fact, it is reported that the Snapdragon 600 improves battery life by over 40% compared to its ancestor.
And for the international version of the Galaxy S IV, we will get the Samsung’s own Exynos 5 Octa, which is based on ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture which has four powerful cores based on Cortex A15 and an additional four cores based on the Cortex A7 architecture. This means that for the mundane tasks, the Cortex A7 cores will be used, and for power hungry tasks, all the eight cores will be used when needed.
So, theoretically, no matter which version of the Galaxy S IV we get, the battery backup of the smart phone out of the box has to be better than the stock Galaxy S III.
