Verizon's Galaxy S III may lose quad-core processor

Verizon's Galaxy S III Snapdragon S4

An unknown Samsung handset running on Verizon’s network made an appearance on NenaMark’s benchmarking app over the weekend. The smartphone features the model number SCH-I535, which has previously been rumored to be Verizon’s variant of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S III. The benchmark confirms that a powerful Samsung device with a 720p HD display and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich is heading to Verizon. The results also show that rather than Samsung’s own quad-core Exynos processor, the SCH-I535 is equipped with Qualcomm’s dual-core and LTE-friendly Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz. The Samsung Galaxy S III will launch on numerous carriers throughout North America beginning in June.
