Much like what Samsung did with its Galaxy S4, it appears that the not-yet-official Galaxy Note III will be released in two models with differing processors: one with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and another with Samsung’s own Exynos 5 Octa chipset. And, also like the release with the Galaxy S4, a recent leak from SamMobile suggests that the US will be getting the quad-core version of the device.
The primary reason for the US version of the Galaxy Note III being equipped with the 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor is because of its 4G LTE support. Meanwhile, other European markets like France, UK, India, and Italy (among many others) will receive the eight-core Exynos model. The full list of countries for each model can be found at SamMobile‘s site.
Meanwhile, Samsung is also expected to release a dual-SIM version of the device, but for now it appears that that particular model is exclusive to China. The other specs of the Galaxy Note III have been thoroughly covered previously, with all signs pointing to a 5.7-inch display, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and 3GB of RAM.
