Samsung wants 64 bit processors in its Smartphones too
Post Apple’s September 10th announcement of the two new iPhones, with the iPhone 5s running a 64 bit chipset, Samsung head JK Shin has said that the next Samsung smartphone will run a 64 bit processor too, reports Korea Times.
JK Shin added that Samsung is aware of the Apple’s plans in China and will be affected by them. The upcoming 64 bit smartphones will come “not in the shortest time,” but that “our next smartphones will have 64-bit processing capability.”
ARM has been promoting their 64 bit architecture for some time and this would be any easy in-house production for Samsung for their next Exynos 6 and Galaxy S5 combination expected to be announced at CES January 2014.
Is this a knee-jerk move by Samsung, or is it a planned announcement? Only the folks at Samsung know.
