The Samsung Galaxy S4 will reportedly arrive in the UK with a 1.9GHz quad core chip on board, rather than the more powerful processor of other world territories. T3 is reporting that Britain will not be one of the markets to receive the 1.6GHz octa-based models of the handset at launch.
“The Samsung Galaxy S4 is equipped with a 1.9GHz Quad-core AP or a 1.6GHz Octa-core AP. The selection of AP varies by markets. In the UK the Galaxy S 4 will be available as a 4G device with a 1.9GHz Quad Core Processor,” a Samsung spokesperson told the website.
It remains unclear how the presence of the 1.6GHz octa-core processor will impact on the device’s performance, with Samsung yet to confirm whether the more-powerful model will be released in the UK at a later date.
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S4 at a press conference last week, confirming that the smartphone will run the latest Android 4.2.2 operating system and come equipped with innovative software features, such as eye control and a dual camera mode.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 will launch in the UK on April 26.
