Just some speculation..
I don't think Exynos has integrated 3G radio chips like Qualcomm snapdragons. Tegra2, OMAP4 don't have it either as far as I know. So they can be used for GSM and CDMA phones.
I think it's either Exynos supply issue or Samsung found it more power efficient with dual core snapdragon 8X60 AP and LTE radio.
