On I read: "if you live in the US, you'll be getting the quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor. If you live elsewhere, however, you'll be treated to an Exynos 8890—an octa-core chip."

So it seems you're talking about different phones with different processors. Either your source is wrong or you read it wrong.

The web master may only know what's in their country. That's why you ask around or read more than one site.
