The company is using Exynos 5 Octa to power select variants of Galaxy S4, but still most of S4 units are still powered by Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor.
In the related report, Samsung Galaxy Note III is also rumoured to come featured with 13MP camera pre-loaded with Optical Image Stabilization technology that makes possible to capture and record high quality blur free images and videos.
