Hardware

The biggest difference between the two variants lays in the processing chops of the variants. The 3G variant is powered by Samsung’sExynos 5 octa-core SoC (1.9GHz A15 quad-core + 1.3GHz A7 quad-core), while the 4G variant is powered by Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz and paired with Adreno 330 GPU.

Otherwise both the variants feature specifications like 5.1-inch 1080p display, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 16-megapixel rear camera, 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 2,800mAh battery.

As you would expect, the newer variant supports LTE, and is also Samsung’s first smartphone to feature Wi-Fi with 2×2 MIMO (Multi-Input Multi-Output), which essentially means that there are two internal Wi-Fi antennas for faster Wi-Fi speeds. The rest of the connectivity options remain the same like Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and IR Blaster.

Software

Here too things are identical with both the variants running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat wrapped under Samsung’s new TouchWiz UI.

Extras

The two variants boast IP67 certification, which makes them resistant to water and dust. There is also a fingerprint scanner integrated into the home button and a heart rate sensor.
