    I've noticed two models of the Galaxy S III exist:

    Model #1:
    SoC
    - Samsung Exynos 4 Quad
    CPU - 1.4 GHz quad-core Cortex-A9
    GPU
    - Mali-400 MP
    RAM - 1 GB RAM (international)

    Model #2:
    SoC
    - Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960
    CPU - 1.5 GHz dual-core Krait
    GPU - Adreno 225
    RAM - 2 GB RAM (NA, KR, AU, JP)

    Which model is better?

    I live in the UK - which model will I get?

    I'm hoping the answer is that the UK gets the 2 GB RAM model, as 2 GB is obviously better than 1 GB RAM.

    You will get model #1 as that is the international version. The 2nd one is a version for the US.

    On the Geekbench 2 benchmark the UK/International version gets a much higher score so measured by that it is "better".

    Then again the Galaxy Note 2 is on sale tomorrow......:)

    The UK version doesn't have LTE yet, as I understand it. However, there is a LTE version coming soon. I wonder if it will end up with the USA spec...
