More news are coming out that UK is getting the S4 Snapdragon 600 variant instead of the Exynos Octa-powered one. Over at SamMobile, they have a list of countries where either will be or both will be distributed and there is a little discrepancy on the UK info since it states that it will receive both variants. However, Samsung has just confirmed that UK will not be receiving the Exynos 5 Octa version, following a query made by a concerned individual.


In a response to a query about the UK version of the Galaxy S, Samsung replied with the following statement.


"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 S4 will be available as a 4G device with a 1.9GHz Quad Core Processor."


There are two possible reasons why both devices won't be shipped to some countries. First reason is because countries with ample LTE coverage should get the Snapdragon version, since it has built-in LTE modem and it will be more efficient. Next possible reason is the demand for Samsung S 4. Countries with higher demand could be getting both, which is logical, because then Samsung would sell out both variants in these countries.


Furthermore, no need to fret really, as we have the entire 2013 to wait for new shipments of both versions of the phone. Who knows, next half of the year might mean both variants will already be offered in UK?

Huawei is trying hard to get pass with the image that it only producing cheap and low-cost phones, which involving competing with established brands such as Samsung. Huawei Ascend D2 and Ascend Mate occupy the high-end phone market, the Ascend G520 is aimed at the more affordable scale, while still offering some of high end features.

 

The Ascend G520 also comes with an unspecified version of Android (but at least 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich), a 4.5-inch IPS touchscreen of unknown resolution, a 5 MP rear camera, and 512 MB of RAM. That's a bit disappointing, sure. Then again - you are getting a quad-core phone for little over 200 dollars unlocked.

 

The G520 pictured above comes with China Mobile's logo on it, as you can see. And it's unclear at this point whether this device will ever make it to any other country.

A new Tegra 4 mobile processor is coming its way as announced by NVIDIA and it should hit the smartphone market very soon. The Tegra 4i was also previously-and "secretly" referred to as Project Grey and it is said to preserve battery life with a fifth core!


Furthermore, the processor is more compact than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and the processor is clocked at 2.3GHz on an ARM's R4 Cortex A9 chip. This is really one processor to watch and it makes us wonder which smartphone will be able to use it first.


This high-performance phone processor will truly up the ante on smartphone performance and it will somehow be a leveling factor for more expensive phones. In addition, the Tegra 4i also supports 4G LTE with its i500 LTE modem, so no need to worry about the lack of it thereof. Smartphones can't get more exciting than this.
