EDIT: If it doesn't have LTE it will probably have S4 Krait, sound familiar?

Isn't the Snapdragon S4 Krait an A15 based chip?

This was posted earlier to a Canadian news site and it could be possible as it did happen to us One X owners. Essentially much like the Tegra 3 they are saying that the new Quad Core Exynos may not support LTE and could possibly ship with the Snapdragon S4 Krait that the HTC One X from AT&T and Rogers is using. I am not saying this is concrete but I wouldn't be surprised. I am curious to see what the end result is going to be.

Not really based, they can be compared to each other. The S4 Krait is actually a bit lower than a true A15 in regards to performance. The chip people were wanting was the exynos 5250 (or 5450? ugh too many numbers) a dual core chipset, but samsung wanted the marketing "quad core" brings.

The One X has a much nicer build quality than anything I've handled by Samsung in the past 12 months.

Almost. Qualcomm made the decision to go with lower power consumption over higher performance, so it is slightly slower than A15.

This means that companion cores aren't needed, and in theory it might be able to clock higher to overcome the performance deficit when needed.

This actually makes me really happy. If most of the new high end and mid range phones come with the s4, then we will see less splintering of apps and games.
