The Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone, unveiled Thursday evening at a news conference in New York, is based on Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa application processor, which will go into volume production in the second quarter. The processor will have four or eight cores. The U.S. version of the phone, however, is expected to be built around Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 APQ8064T application processor, a quad-core chip. Multiple carriers will sell the phone starting in the second quarter.
