Samsung officially confirmed the Galaxy S4 for U.S. has four cores, not eight.

Samsung official confirmed the Galaxy S4, the marquee device due out in the upcoming weeks, will feature a quad-core processor instead of a chipset bearing eight processing cores.

Samsung had kept us guessing when it first announced its Galaxy S4 in New York last month, saying only that in some regions, a 1.9GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 series processor would rev the GS4’s engines, and Samsung’s own 1.6GHz eight-core Exynos 5 Octa silicon would take care of others.

In addition to some promising processing muscle, the Galaxy S4 features a 5-inch full-HD Super AMOLED display, the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS, and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera.
