Yesterday’s event for the Samsung Galaxy S5 left a lot of people with a confused state because apparently the spec sheet nowhere talked about the usual Exynos variant for the flagship. The only major thing mentioned on it was the device’s featuring of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC. Though the event didn’t help with the confusions people usually have before official announcements, we have now a confirmation for this Exynos variant. The confusion has been cleared by a recent blog post made by Samsung which says that there will definitely be a 2.1GHz octacore variant of the Exynos SoC for the Galaxy S5.
However this clarification has led to yet another confusion; we don’t know about the availability of this variant. The previous strategy of Samsung kept the Qualcomm model US exclusive whereas the Exynos model was made available in all other regions. So we cannot say much about whether the company will offer this variant to select markets or make it available on a wider platform. If the new variant is to be made accessible in all regions, then we are hoping that it comes with all the major features still attached such as the 4k video recording.
