OK, maybe we’re relying a bit too much on advertising for the latest scoops these days, but if you can’t trust those trying to sell you product by all means necessary, then who can you? That was a joke. You can never trust a marketing campaign to relay the facts as they actually are, but that’s not stopping us from at least humoring the content of a recent Google ad for the Samsung Galaxy S III on Rogers.
While most information has us believing that the North American version of the Galaxy S III will feature a Snapdragon S4 processor in order to avoid LTE radio issues, the ad claims that that phone (on Rogers at least) will ship with an Exynos chip while maintaining the same 4G connectivity. The use of the words “new Exynos processor” suggests we’re dealing with the quad-core version unveiled alongside the GS3.
Still, it wouldn’t be earth shattering to learn that a marketer has supplied us with the wrong information, whether intentionally or not. We’d say take this bit of info with a pinch of salt. Then file it away under “maybe” or even “wishful thinking.”
