Samsung exec reportedly confirms quad-core Exynos, 4G LTE in Galaxy S III

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 7:51PM EST

An unnamed Samsung executive reportedly confirmed that the company’s highly anticipated Galaxy S III smartphone will be equipped with a quad-core Samsung Exynos chip featuring on-board LTE and WCDMA radios, the Korea Times reported on Monday. BGR exclusively reported last month that the Galaxy S III would feature a 1.5GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor, a 4.8-inch full HD 1080p display, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a ceramic case, 4G LTE connectivity and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. According to the executive, Samsung is attempting to distance itself from Qualcomm, which has previously provided the manufacturer with single-chip solutions. “It was believed that Qualcomm chips had greater stability and suited easy upgrades. But, that’s the old story,” the executive said. Samsung still has a cross-licensing deal with Qualcomm to use its firm’s single-chip solutions through 2024.
