This news has been confirmed by Samsung, and there may be a possibility that several other markets will find their S 4's shipping with a Snapdragon 600 as well.

What's surprising is that it looks like the S IV won't be carrying an Exynos 5 Octa processor like the rumors have said, and instead will carry a Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor.

Samsung Galaxy Note III to ship with an Exynos 5 Octa processor

Samsung announced the 8-core Exynos 5 Octa processor during CES and given that, it only seems logical that the company will include that processor in at least some of their 2013 devices. Notably, the higher-end devices such as the Galaxy Note, which presumably will be released as the Galaxy Note III later in the year. Samsung has yet to confirm the details (or the existence) of the Note III, however some reports have begun to surface with talk of specs.
