The South Korean company recently confirmed that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 will come with a quad-core processor instead of one that features eight cores.

When the next variant of the Galaxy S line was announced last month, speculations emerged on what processor the smartphone will have. Some reports hinted at the 1.9GHz quad-core processor from Qualcomm while others indicated that the device will feature a 1.6GHs eight-core Octa Exynos 5 processor from Samsung.

However, these speculations were recently put to rest by the confirmation by the South Korean manufacturer.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 will also have a five-inch full-HD Super AMOLED screen display and a 13MP camera at the back. The latest variation of the Galaxy S series will be run on the Jelly Bean Android 4.2.2 OS.

The upcoming smartphone will be offered through a number of mobile service providers including Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, C-Spire and Cricket. Staples, Costco, Sam’s Club, Target, Walmart, and RadioShack will also be offering the smartphone in the market.

The pricing structure will be released individually by each of the mobile service provider and retail outlet. The smartphone will be available in three models a 16GB model, 32GB model and a 64GB model. The version of T-Mobile will be released on April 24 at a price tag of around $150 with the usual 24-month service contract. On the other hand, the Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available by April 27 at around $250 with the typical two-year mobile service contract.
