exynos 5250We know that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the highly-anticipated devices of 2012, but what can we expect to see from the phone? Well if you guessed a quad-core processor based on how fast the adoption rate of quad-core processors have been this year, you would be right on the money according to a Samsung executive. The anonymous executive revealed to the Korea Times that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be utilizing the company’s very own Exynos 4412 quad-core processor, ultimately making the Galaxy S3 the first phone from Samsung to utilize the technology and at the same time cutting down Samsung’s reliance on Qualcomm for their chips.

While this piece of news seems to corroborate our earlier post regarding an alleged leaked photo, unfortunately none of this can be confirmed officially at the moment, but like we said, given the rate of adoption for quad-core processors this year, it would not be a stretch of the imagination if Samsung were to turn to quad-core processors for the Galaxy S3, so take this with a grain of salt for now and check back with us at a later date for more info!
