Samsung to have 64-bit Smartphone Next Year, 128-bit to follow
Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy S5 will most likely contain a 64-bit processor. ARM, a mobile processor manufacture, and Samsung Executives met on Tuesday to possibly agree on the long-rumored 64-bit Exynos Octa processor for the GS5 smartphone.
According the Korean Herald, a senior manger from ARM had this to say:
“Executives from Samsung and ARM had a meeting today. They discussed the ARM 64-bit chip, which is expected to be used in Samsung’s smartphone next year”
He also stated that, “Cortex-M processors, which are used for products in the smart home system, might have been on the agenda.”
The ARM senior manager also estimated that they will have a working 128-bit processor by next year.
“As technology moves from, for example, shifting to face recognition on smartphones from the fingerprint scanner to unlock an iPhone, it requires more powerful memory capacity.”
