In 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+.
