Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Processor
ETNews revealed that the initial production for the Galaxy Note 3 will be exclusively equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 processor, towing away the issue of an Exynos 5420 octa-core CPU variant which apparently suffering from overheating issues reported by Galaxy S4 owners.
