As it seems, Samsung is set once again to update its wide Galaxy S4 line with another smartphone but this time a version that will feature a Snapdragon 800 processor. This report comes after user manual was spotted, which shows the codename for this processor chip from Qualcomm. Samsung already released numerous devices of this kind and there isn’t an official statement from the company that confirms this report.

In this user manual, the MSM8974 CPU processor was mentioned, which is the ID for the latest Snapdragon 800 processor from Qualcomm. Engadget was first to post this report but originally it was spotted by RB men.

For a very short period of time, this processor from Qualcomm has become so popular, that most users that value the power of their ‘machines’, want it in their devices. SoC is amazing and offers a much improved graphic quality over the previous version or the other chip processor models made by the competition. It has the ability of not draining the battery life when always-on voice feature is placed in the device. It has been proven that is much faster than its predecessors.


It isn’t official yet that the device spotted in this manual is exactly the Galaxy S4 smartphone. According to the dimensions and specs noticed on the manual, we have another reason to believe that Galaxy S4 Snapdragon 800 version is set for upgrading the Galaxy S4 family. This comes after the information we heard about the announced collaboration between LG and Qualcomm for bringing this Snapdragon 800 processor chip to the new Optimus G. It was said that this device will be revealed by the end of this year.

Qualcomm is bringing notable changes in the processor market. We can see some smartphone manufacturers replacing their chip suppliers with Qualcomm. According to the several of Galaxy S4 devices we saw, there is no question that the company is ready to make one more which will have this Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip. At the start of this week, we saw another device that will be released from Samsung. It will be called Galaxy S4 Advanced and it will support the next gen super fast LTE network.

Samsung is seriously focused on making the Galaxy S4 line as perfect as they can. We already saw the ordinary Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Google edition, Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy S4 Active and Galaxy S4 Zoom. Can’t wait to see what they have to offer next.
