Default Galaxy S3 - US Variant will be DUAL-core?

Posted on Tech&Trend yesterday:

"...it seems that those who are awaiting the highly anticipated device in the US won't get to experience the quad-core chip as the US version of the device will sport a Qualcomm dual-core instead, an unnamed Samsung executive told The Korea Times.

The executive said that Samsung would release its Galaxy S3 smartphone according to different specifications and different markets. For European consumers, it would use its own quad-core processor with 3G, while its own solution that combines LTE, 3G and quad-core processor will be used for the Korean version. The only exception would be the US version, which would be using Qualcomm chips."

If this is true, does this change your mind about the GS3? And if so, what is going to be the next best thing? Curious because I'm due for a Verizon upgrade and I am (or was) holding out for the GS3...
