??
Why would Samsung use Tegra?? They have their own in house Exynos chips

The whole quad core thing is a red herring. Here's what people care about in the new S3:

1. The phone must be aesthetically pleasing. Give it a nice design, and use some good materials. It can be a plastic mix like the MotoRazr with Kevlar. No creaking, gaps, etc. The design needs to impress with a good shape and nice angles.

2. The phone needs to last all day. 2000mh battery minimum this time please. We need it to work through heavy use all day and still be working up until we plug it in before we go to bed.

3. The UI needs to flow well without straying too far from ICS. Follow google's design lead and start nailing down how every Galaxy S phone will function from here on out.

4. The Camera needs to blow minds. It doesn't need a 12 megapixel count, but it needs an amazing sensor and lens so that people can start leaving the point and shoot at home and start relying on their phone's camera to take perfect pictures in every light scenario. It has to have good low and high light performance.

5. The screen does NOT need to be 1080p. It needs to be 720p with fantastic viewing angles and great color reproduction.

6. There needs to be zero lag in the TouchWiz UI if there has to be one. Yes, people will root it and go vanilla, but most mainstream owners aren't going to know how to do that. The UI needs to flow with ICS and not look silly or perform poorly.

Quad core is BS. The phone doesn't need quad core for anything right now. It probably won't for quite a long time. If it ends up using the KraitS4 here domestically, that is not a negative. The S4 got better battery life in the OneX than the Tegra3 in the intl. version. I'm sure it will be similar with the Exynos Quad.

Bring it on!

It's funny people are impressed with Samsung saying the Exynos uses 20% less power when the S4 uses 25-40% less power than the previous generation.
The S4 pushes IPC higher while the Exynos goes for more cores. If that sounds familiar it should because that's basically where Intel and AMD find themselves. One strives for better IPC, the other for more cores/better multi-threaded capability.

Qualcomm GPU's historically have been very slow compared to what comes in TI's, Samsung's, and Apple SoC's. That's one reason why I would take Exynos over S4

They will also have the new and more efficient LTE radios in them won't they? That is the main thing I'm looking for along with all the things evensen007 said.

Also, AT&T's LTE service is garbage right now, and I doubt it will be any better in 2 years. Even in major US cities where they claim you will get LTE service pretty much everywhere you will rarely get LTE connection.

Your also forgetting Verizon. I live in he middle of nowhere in Ohio, and I have LTE coverage.

The thread title is misleading, it should say "Galaxy S III may be dual-core in US instead of Exynos 4". What does the Galaxy S3 have to do with Tegra 3?

I don't like CDMA. It's a worthless, dying system. You can't even use your phone internationally if you have Verizon. I kind of have to use AT&T because I travel to Europe a lot, so I need an unlocked phone that has the 800, 900, 1800, 1900, and 2100 bands to get 3G support worldwide. I can't buy T-Mobile phones either since their 3G uses 1700mhz which AT&T phones and European phones don't support.

CDMA > GSM

Only reason GSM is the most common is that it was cheaper to deploy and made it so you didn't need continuous spectrum for bandwidth.

CDMA uses superior technology and is more secure since it doesn't need a sim card.
