Samsung's Future Smartphones To Support 64-bit Apps


Following the announcement of the new iPhone 5S driven by an ARM-based A7 processor that can process data in 64 bits, Samsung also announced plans to add 64-bit processing functionality in its next smartphones.

"Not in the shortest time. But yes, our next smartphones will have 64-bit processing functionality," Samsung's mobile business chief Shin Jong-kyun said in an interview with the Korea Times.

However, most apps are unlikely to see much immediate benefit from the shift from 32-bit tech and that it could introduce compatibility problems in the future.

In addition, in order to deliver performance benefits, 64-bit processor will need devices with more physical memory - especially more than the 1~2GB of RAM found in most flagship smartphones today. However, that would also make the devices more expensive and power-hungry.

In the meantime, with Apple's 64-bit ARM v8 processors and Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa processor that will support ARM's big.Little architecture, the British company is the winner, taking more royalties.

A Samsung's executive also commented on Apple's efforts to gain some market share in China with the iPhone 5c model.

"Apple believes that it can boost its market share in China thanks to stronger brand awareness. However, with better pricing, a diversified product lineup and solid partnerships with local channels, Samsung plans to keep its current momentum in China. We have no reason to allow Apple to steal market share from us," said a low-ranking industry executive.

The latest Apple phones utilize long-term evolution (LTE) mobile technology. The Samsung official said Chinese authorities recently authorized Samsung to put time-division duplexing (TDD) LTE technology on the company?s future devices.

"In order to meet consumer demand and to better respond to changing market situations, Samsung Electronics plans to release mobile devices that both support TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE in China ahead of previous schedules," the executive added.
