After the glorious reveal of the Galaxy S4 in New York last week, we the world was left to wait and watch in awe as we expect the new Samsung Galaxy S4 to hit the stores. People were in particular interested in its great Exynos 5 Octa processor, but it seems that a lot of these people will be disappointed and might not even buy the phone at all!
Why the hell would they be upset? What has Samsung done? Well, it seems that the new flagship will not feature the Exynos 5 Octa in many area of the world. It all started with the USA, Denmark and Sweden, and now UK has joined this list. All of these countries will have the Galaxy S4 with the Snapdragon 600 chipset from Qualcomm.

So, the USA, the UK and half of Europe will not be getting the Exynos 5 Octa which is being advertised as one of the amazing features. What gives? If you remember last year's incident, everyone got the Exynoss unit except for the USA which was stuck with Qualcomm's tech. However, this year things are even worse. Now, personally I stated that I care little for these two units as I find it that both of them are amazing and will get the job done for you very well. However, it seems to me that Samsung is being a bit irresponsible and getting a just a little bit too cocky!
Of course, there is also a valid explanation behind this as well. One idea is that the Exynos 5 Octa still isn't in high production, but this is more of an excuse than a valid reason. However, if this is true, then we just ought to wait a bit longer and the Exynos 5 Octa model will be available as well. I personally don't think that would happen, but hey, who am I to play the judge all mighty?
In some places the venders will try to ease your pain though, like the good folk in the Netherlands who are giving some extra gadgets such as 64 GB SD card to everyone who does by the Galaxy S IV in spite of the fact that it lacks the Exynos 5 Octa under the hood. Remember, no mater which processor it is carrying, this is still an amazing phone!
