Still, how does a company like Samsung let an image like that slip? They've since removed the image from where it originally got posted in their Specifications of Galaxy S series infographic. Someone must have proofed the piece, if not multiple people, so why would the graphic designer know about a spec detail that the company has been pretending to keep secret? You can view the original bottom of the infographic where it shows the eight cores here.
Though it's sure to be one of the most powerful smartphones ever released, we're interested in learning more about the device's battery life and how insanely hot those eight cores are going to make the phone when it's in my pocket burning my thigh, or causing me to scorch my face just to answer a call. Once there's an acceptable answer to those two questions, then we can get excited about the Galaxy S5. Until then, we should all reserve judgment and be patient with our painfully-slow-compared-to-octa-core smartphones.
