    I was thinking about trying the S5 out myself, but maybe I'll wait to see if this comes out first. Maybe I should just stop buying phones, but that wouldn't be a very reasonable thing to do.

    The fact its using the 4X4 octo config, I'd be very surprised if this prime version is intended for Western Europe and US.

    Very interesting....I will believe it when i see it........But it sure would be a PR nightmare if they released in the same markets where they currently have the S5.....

    We get it.... We know what you dislike. So please, for the sake of maturity, stop polluting post. We understand, and respect your point of view. Now please respect others and don't force it on others.

    Your link has nothing to do with the prime. While your at it why don't you post a link detailing the faulty sleep/wake buttons on the iPhone 5? That would be the unbiased approach.

    ----------

    Agreed.

    Wouldn't be surprised at all to see it pop up in Korea, but not the US. The S5 will be the flagship until the note 4.

    Yes the same iPhone 5 I had to get exchanged because the power button wouldn't work.. Found more faults with that then on any Android device I've had

    I had to exchange my iphone 5s twice, due to dust under the camera lens.

    All phones have faults from quality control.... Doesn't make them any less of a phone.

    The new Intel LTE modem could mean the note 4 gets that soc in the USA!

    Crossing fingers but this is a major change to the exynos so it doesn't make sense for them to use a new modem if they are not trying to market huge LTE markets.

    The only way this ever makes it into the US is if someone buys it from overseas and brings it back. This will never see the retail shelf of US carriers in the US.

    This is exactly my point as they already have an exynos soc for Korean markets and them changing the modem to an Intel LTE could be to expand the exynos into LTE markets

    So what would be the purpose of the new device, weird that Samsung only does this with galaxy S line well she did have the Note Neo but I hardly see any word for that phone.

    New device has Intel modem for LTE support also gets higher clocked cores/GPU and 20nm process

    If you look at the add for that phone it only supports 3g

    Let's hope the note 4 gets this and works for every LTE network!

    Just curious, why prefer the Exynos over its Snapdragon counterpart?

    I obviously don't have a ton of real world experience comparing them to each other but did have the Note 10.1 (2014) with an Exynos chip and was underwelmed, despite the purported extra horsepower--had some terrible stutters/lagging. IIRC, I thought I'd read that despite slightly better benchmark results, in real world usage the Snapdragon 800s were better performers.

    Not criticizing your opinion, actually hope you could elaborate and shed more light.

    Separately, while the inclusion of the new LTE chip means in theory we could see it released here, I'm also guessing this will be an Asian market exclusive, at least initially. That being said, I certainly wouldn't put it past Samsung to release it here in the US as a mid-cycle refresh, just in time for the holidays. ;)

    Or to diversify away from Qualcomm?

    Hmm... not sure I would want the Exynos variant considering every model that has had both has shown the QC version always performing better.
