NEW DELHI: Samsung Galaxy S4 last week launched its new flagship smartphone Galaxy S4 with much fanfare in New York. The device will come in two variants – one with an eight-core processor and the other with a quad-core CPU. However, the company has yet not officially revealed the list of countries which are getting eight-core version and the ones getting the quad-core version of the smartphone.

Now, a report in technology news website SamMobile, which has a pretty good record of leaking accurate information about the company, has revealed that India will be among the countries getting the eight-core variant ofSamsung Galaxy S4. This variant has a 1.2GHz CPU to handle small tasks like making calls, while a more powerful 1.6GHz CPU will be used for resource-intensive tasks like gaming. The two CPUs will not operate together for any task.

The other variant, the one not headed to India, is powered by a 1.9GHz quad-core processor.

Other markets that will get the eight-core processor variant (model name GT-I9500) include China, Indonesia, South Korea, Russia and Sri Lanka, among others. This variant will also be launched in all African countries where Samsung has a presence. On the other hand, Australia, Singapore, Switzerland, Netherlands and all European countries barring Ukraine will get the quad-core variant of the phone (model name GT-I9505)

Countries like Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, UAE, Poland and the UK will get both the variants of Samsung Galaxy S4, the report said. There was no word about the variants headed for North America and South America, including the US, which is the biggest smartphone market in the world.

The all-new Samsung Galaxy S4 features a 5-inch SuperAMOLED touchscreen with 1920x1080p resolution and 441ppi pixel density. It comes in 16, 32 and 64GB variants and 2GB RAM. A 13MP camera with LED flash is present on the back of this phone, while a 1.9MP sensor is placed on the back.
