It's absolutely untrue that Verizon was the reason that the SGS3 was a dual core in the US - on all US carriers.
The US SGS3 phones used the Qualcomm S4 processor because its built in world modem made connecting with LTE and any of our other radio standards possible.
Furthermore, you make it sound like that was a bad thing.
The faster dual cores in the S4 were functionally equivalent to the slower Samsung quad core, it saved power without requiring separate modem chips, and it added reliability by reducing the part count.
There was nothing bad about it and Verizon had zero to do with that.
