Samsung Galaxy S4 with Exynos 5 Octa chipset goes on sale for £600

Online retailer DigitalRev is selling the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone with an Exynos 5 Octa chip for as little as £600 including delivery. This is more expensive than the £580 the Qualcomm-version costs and while it is significantly more powerful, it comes with one big disadvantage; it doesn’t support LTE.

As a reminder, the S4 is available either with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC clocked at 1.9GHz or with an octa-core SoC (comprising of four Cortex-A15 cores clocked at 1.6GHz and four Cortex-A7 ones clocked at 1.2GHz).

The rest of the configuration remains the same; 2GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 5.99in 1,920 x 1,080 pixel Super AMOLED display, a 13-megapixel camera with flash, zero shutter lag and BIS, a front facing 2-megapixel camera, a 2,600mAh battery and much more.
