The last we heard, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could be launched in both a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 variant, and an Exynos 5420 variant. Unfortunately if you were looking forward to getting your hands on the Exynos 5420 version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, you might have to wait. According to a report from ETNews it seems that Samsung will only be producing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 variants of the Galaxy Note 3 for the time being. The reason behind it is because it seems that the Exynos 5420 is experiencing overheating issues and we guess that’s the last thing Samsung wants in their latest product, which means until Samsung fixes the problem, only the Snapdragon 800 models will be available.
Some of you guys might probably not be too fussed as to which version you will get, but it should be noted that the Snapdragon 800 and Exynos 5420 models are destined for different markets, and according to the list of countries, those living in the US and UK (for the most part, unless you’re planning on getting it through Carphone Warehouse), are “safe” as these are the markets which the Snapdragon 800 model will be arriving on. No word on whether this report is true, and how long it will take for Samsung to sort it out, but hopefully more details will be shared on Samsung’s 4th of September press event at IFA 2013.
