What caught our eye this time was the news that the Japanese version makes use of a dual-core Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 1.5GHz processor (MSM8960) instead of the stock Quad-core 1.4Ghz.
However, the new chipset has brought about a change in thickness from 8.6mm to a noticeable 9mm, which may not sound like a big deal. Other specs of the Samsung flagship remains same with 4.8-inch HD AMOLED screen (which we talked about, see here), the 8 megapixel camera, the microSD slot, the 2100mAh battery and even the color options - Pebble blue and Marble white.
While the news about a Japanese-only model might not be that exciting, it also gives a hint to what Samsung may be preparing for the North American market, where LTE connectivities are a must for high-end smartphones. So far Samsung has not revealed detailed specs for any other market including the US. But if you are interested to give this one the nod, you better learn your bit to het this baby cracked/ jail-broken.
