Default What is Samsung I9500 Galaxy S4?

Hey I'm new to this site so sorry if this is the wrong place to post or if it had been answered before!

What does it mean when people refer to the S4 as the Samsung I9500? I have the US Cellular SCH-R970 and I would like to root it and install a more stock android like rom on it and I've been trying to do some research but I keep getting hung up because I don't see my model listed very much. I do how ever see everyone throwing out Samsung I9500 though. Can someone explain this and possibly point me in the right direction?

i9500 is the international exynos version i think.
i9505 is the international snapdragon 600 version.
i9506 is the international snapdragon 800 version.
there are also other models. you can find a lot more info on gsmarena.com

Thanks for getting back to me. That makes sense. So do you know if the US Cellular version of the S4 is limited in roms I can put on it? Like I said, I haven't really seen much on my version.

Well it depends very much on the number of devices sold.

depending on what you want - if you like a specific custom rom - you should search for it on the forums or strait through google. It is very easy to search for something like: SCH-R970 cyanogenmod 11 xda -> resulting in some useful threads.

good luck! and good flashing!
