    Hi All,

    Does anybody know the excat CPU type used in Galaxy W.

    From Quadrant, I get this info:
    Name: ARMv7 Processor rev 2(v7I)
    Max Freq: 1024Mhz
    Min Freq: 122.88 Mhz
    SetCPU detects the same type and frequency range.
    Should not the maximum be 1.4GHz as announced?

    I got the phone from Bell Canada. There are some differences in specifications between mine and what is on websites. e.g.: My camera is 3MP instead of 5MP. Just wondering CPU has the same issue as camera.

    I got these:


    It looks same CPU type, but lower working frequency. Can it be due to my provider default ROM?

    Hi ag2000ir

    We are comparing different models, both branded as Galaxy W, but models are different :(

    Bell Mobility Canada???

    I think this is a real Scam, as it is described as Samsung Galaxy W

    You got SGH-T679M.....1 GHz CPU, 3MP Camera.

    I got GT-I8150.......1.4GHz CPU, 5MP Camera.

    Very hard to find spec for SGH-T679M.

    See this from Samsung Canada

    Unfortunately, even here nothing is said about the CPU difference!!!

    See here for Passmark Scores for GT-I8150

    And here for Passmark Scores for SGH-T679M

    Is it a Canada thing, if so, I would be pretty mad, but is there a price differential, or is the higher spec model available?

    EDIT, here is Comparison, from GSM Arena, your phone is the SAMSUNG EXHIBIT II 4G, as sold in the US, but they have branded your Canadian version as Galaxy W.........not nice IMHO

    Thanks dannymur,

    You are right. It is actually Exhibit II 4G.

    It looks Bell Canada is cheating by making use of Galaxy W name.

    In theory if the CPUs are identical it should also be able to work @ 1.4GHz as well. am I right?

    Do you think I can use Galaxy W ROMS on my phone?

    Same Family..... not same CPU.

    MSM8255 vs MSM8255T

    1GHz vs 1.4GHz

    see this:


    Don't think Roms can be interchanged....check XDA Forum......be careful!!!
