Oh man I was expecting a dual-core 5250 for the S4 and a quad-core for the Note 3.. but that's great if they are putting in the 5400 series in S4. Phone would be beastly. Just keep removable batteries and SD card slots Samsung and I'll throw my money at you.
Considering the Nexus 10 has the Samsung Exynos 5250 already in it then it shant be too hard to think that a optimized Exynos 5 dual or quad will be in the S4. That performance is going to be droolworthy.

That's actually not a lot. Modern very long battery life phones designed for emerging markets easily last a month with moderate use. Over 2 months if used only to text occasionally which is the primary usage for these markets.

Maybe they use the same chip for their next Note 10.1, like they did with the S3 and first Note 10.1. Economies of scale I suppose.
phones are getting obscenely fast, yet we don't do much with all that power. a phone from early last year can still perform with the best of this year. i don't know if thats a good thing or a bad thing
@aragis, You might want to look at the Galaxy Note II then. Not much, just a 5.5 inch phone with 2GB RAM, 1.6GHz quad core and 4G LTE, probably in stores near you as of 2 months ago. I hear it even takes calls and plays mp3s that these kids these days love so much.
I only hope that they will put in a better headphone amp, and better audio DAC. And then an option in the audio settings to switch between high power mode (high quality full range audio) or low power mode (to improve battery life).
It is so difficult to find a good portable player these days.
