Is there a reason we need this many cores?? Hopefully the next Galaxy flagship will have an all new design with better materials

More cores = more computing power without having to increase the clock rate on each core. Higher clock rates generates more heat and uses more power.

It doesn't matter much to me if the next Galaxy S continues to run 'samsung's version of android'. What's the point of so much hardware if you don't develop the software to take advantage of it? It's just specs.

I don't get why anyone keeps asking why it needs this many cores, you must read into it.

Its an 8core CPU based on ARM's big.LITTLE platform. 4 of the cores are A15 Cortex that handle the heavy lifting when needed, while the other 4 cores are low power A7 Cortex that are meant for lighter tasks, the CPU wont use ALL 8 Cores at once, the MAIN purpose of this CPU is to use a little power as possible, its all about effeciency without losing performance.

For me the best part about this SoC is the seriously powerful GPU it has, Samsung have gone back to using PowerVR with the SGX 544 MP3 max clock at 533mHz, its performance is said to be more powerful than the iPhone5's GPU, but lower than the beast found in the iPad 4 which has yet to be beaten.

WRT SloopJohnB's comment, Samsung generally optimize their TouchWiz UI to work with the GPU, that includes the apps like S Note, the Browser etc...to, and is the reason why Samsung have the fastest and smoothest Android UI and the reason why Samsung phones have unique features like Multi-view Multitasking, pop up video, excellent video recording etc...

I'm so glad the S4 won't be running the Snapdragon 600

this phone is going to need beefy battery because it won't last long using the same battery as the s3

@Laffen thanks i understand now. I only asked because i didn't understand why such a portable device needed such power. I know about alot of technology but i don't know everything

Damn, when did phones become so boooooring? I remember few years ago that when a new flagship was released, it was exciting, new cool design, new features. Now what? I can predict new phones with practically 100% accuracy. Same shit rectangular design with as few buttons as possible, FullHD display around 5", 13MP camera, only newer CPU i.e. S800, wow that is sooooooo "exciting". And a battery with around 100-200 mAh bigger than it's predecessor. And it's valid for all manufactuers, well in Apple case it's same shit only screen won't be 5" but 4" and not FullHD but HD

You're right there. Practically every new phone is now the same thing as you mentioned. There's not much innovation apart from new ideas coming from the likes of Nokia imo.
