Samsung plans 64-bit smartphones next year



The Korean tech giant Samsung has been claimed to launch its first 64-bit smartphones next year, a report from Taiwan says.

It is not a secret that the company works on a 64-bit processor for smartphones using a design from ARM that will later be improved. The upcoming 64-bit chip by Samsung will restore the parity with Apple, which has had a 64-bit chip for its mobile devices since this past summer.

As to Samsung’s first 64-bit smartphones the report claims they will arrive with WQHD displays that will work at 2560 x 1440 pixels and 16 MP cameras. Apart from this excellent hardware the first smartphones with 64-bit Samsung processors will have an important improvement – they can go above 4 GB of RAM. Currently most mobile devices run 32-bit processors and can’t access more than 4 GB of RAM but they get dangerously close to this limit with some devices sporting 3 GB of RAM already. So something has to be changed.

Apparently Samsung will soon do it.
