Yes there will be a speed improvement. The GS3 has 2 different models. The International is a quad core arm cortex a9 chip. The USA version is a dual core Snapdragon S4, a modified arm cortex a9 chip. The snapdragon has performance nearly on par with the arm cortex a15. The Exynos 5 chip, will have 4 arm cortex a15 cores at the very least, if not four a15's and four a7's. The four a15's will each be 40-50% faster clock for clock than the gs3's international a15's, and better than the measly 2 cores in the USA GS3. So long as they go with an exynos 5, the gs4 should easily be more powerful.

Also I wouldn't call it a prius. The prius isn't powerful. It is only efficient. The prius is more like those low end a7 only phones, which sip power. The gs4 if it goes octa-core would be more like the tesla model s. Capable of efficiency, but also capable of pure raw power.

The current U.S. "lunchbox" device has 4 cores...though that could change prior to release..

It's possible that's to denote the Chinese/dual-SIM variant which is what's pictured.

Samsung surely isn't shy of making themselves heard. first the teaer, then the flashmob in NY - If the thing really looks like a Note2 or S3 then oh boy - imagine the moaning in press and forums

New images show off the Samsung Galaxy S4 in beautiful detail

Guess we will find out in less than 24 hours if this comes true.

Still can't believe the Koreans actually go with "4" - considering it is translated "death" and is considered bad luck ...
I only heard that "4" sounds same as "death' in Chinese. Never heard the story abt Korean

It's less of an issue, but it is still considered unlucky - Sure not a coincedence that the new Galaxy is called "IV" and not "4" ..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetraphobia
Quote:
In Korea, tetraphobia is less extreme, but the floor number 4 is almost always skipped in hospitals and similar public buildings. In other buildings, the fourth floor is sometimes labeled "F" (Four) instead of "4" in elevators. Apartment numbers containing multiple occurrences of the number 4 (such as 404) are likely to be avoided to an extent that the value of the property is adversely affected. The national railroad, Korail, left out the locomotive number 4444 when numbering a locomotive class from 4401 upwards.

Thats all well and good, so answer me this.

Why have Samsung paid to have a blooming huge ad in times square specifically saying 4 not IV?

Are they as fine with the LG ad above it?

Will the casual viewer notice that it's an LG ad?

Samsung has become Americanized and now sucks. The fact it looks the same kind of kills it visually for me. And even the UI looks the same. I mean I don't expect them to re-write the entire OS but damn... This is super corny the way they're presenting.
