The Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor compared to the international version that comes with a quad-core Exynos 4 Quad processor based on 1.4 GHz A9 cores. As you probably know, the South Korea-based company decided to fit a dual-core processor because the Exynos 4 Quad unit wasn’t compatible with the 4G LTE networks in US.
