Samsung Galaxy’s phones will now have 64-bit processor just like the recently launched iPhone 5S, according to the company’s mobile business chief Shin Jong-Kyun.
He said, “Not in the shortest time. But yes, our next smartphones will have a 64-bit processor functionality.” Shin noted that he closely followed the media coverage of the iPhone 5S launch. This statement bears to show that the next generation Samsung’s smartphones, maybe the anticipated Galaxy S5, will have the 64-bit processor.
The benefits of a 64-bit chip include among others is the memory capacity that can exceed 4GB, perform scientific simulations, improve graphic abilities. Practically, all these combined features will have considerable drag on the battery life but the device will still deliver superb use.
Obviously, Samsung doesn’t want to be left in the line behind Apple for the futuristic benefits of the 64-bit processor. It intends to close whatever remains in the technology gap with the US Tech giant.
Presently Samsung phones are leading in most emerging markets but still giving Apple hot chase in the North American and European markets.
The Galaxy Note 3, which is arguably Samsung’s most powerful phone available has a 5.7-inch 1080p screen with a 13MP rear camera, a whooping 3200mAh battery with a 3GB RAM and a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and 1.9 GHz Exynous Octa Core processor; but still runs on a 32-bit chip.
What Samsung will do with the 64-bit chip can simply be left to our wildest imagination.
