Quad-core LTE Samsung Galaxy S III now on sale in South Korea

Quad-core LTE Samsung Galaxy S III now on sale in South KoreaIn the western world, we have the dual-core LTE Samsung Galaxy S III, and the quad-core non-LTE Samsung Galaxy S III.

However, South Koreans are being treated to the best of both worlds, with a quad-core and LTE-rockin’ Samsung Galaxy S III. Sonofa…

At present, there aren’t any quad-core chips with integrated LTE, hence the LTE Samsung Galaxy S III in the west being dual-core. It’s a similar story with the quad-core HTC One X; the LTE version is the dual-core HTC One XL.

However, Samsung has come up with a cheeky solution, combining a quad-core chip with an LTE radio using an elastic band. Possibly.

As a result, the South Korean Samsung Galaxy S III is a tad chubbier, but we reckon consumers will see past that for what will no doubt be perceived as a technically superior phone.

Are you in South Korea? If so, you can pick up the quad-core LTE Samsung Galaxy S III on SK Telecom, KT, or LG U+.

Arguably the worst of both worlds as the quad cores seem to use more power for not much gain and LTE is power hungry too

Not to mention the added power drain of having two separate chips, as opposed to one chip with a built in LTE radio.
