Samsung to add 64-bit CPUs to its 2014 flagships

12 September, 2013

Samsung's CEO JK Shin announced the company will start using 64-bit processors on its "next smartphones". This most probably means the 2014 flagships, such as the Galaxy S5, will be getting the new processors.

This announcement follows hot on the heels of Apple's recent event that brought us the iPhone 5S with a 64-bit CPU. But while Apple did optimize the iOS 7 for 64-bit processors, Android OS is yet to support such thing.

The 64-bit CPUs are a must-have for devices with 4GB or more RAM and there is a chance Android 4.4 KitKat brings 64-bit support. There is also a probability Samsung unveils a flagship with 4GB of RAM next year, since the Note 3 already has 3GB.
