Rumor: Samsung’s next smartphones also 64bits processors




The next generation of Samsung smartphones would just like Apple’s iPhone 5s have a 64bit processor. The Korea Times reports that according to an internal meeting of executives of Samsung. That 64bits processors for Galaxy’s are not in the short term.

The move to 64bit processors is necessary if Samsung wants to install more memory. In its smartphones The current 32bit processors on ARMv7 architecture to support a memory size of up to 4GB, while last week presented Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 10.1 already have 3GB of RAM.

ARM processors with 64bit support is possible with the ARMv8 instruction. Because Apple’s own Swift-core processors are used, it can now make the move to the 64bit architecture and it does with its A7-soc in the iPhone 5S , as said Apple Tuesday. Samsung uses the micro-architecture of ARM itself and therefore can not yet give a 64bits processors.

The director of Samsung’s mobile division would have a meeting with executives of other Samsung companies said that the next generation of Samsung smartphones like the iPhone 5S get a 64bit processor. That reports Korea Times.

The rumor comes as no surprise: ARM said earlier that it expects licensees, including Samsung, the Cortex-A53 and A57 cores from 2014 products will appear. Or that all will be the successor to the Time Galaxy S4 is unclear. Cortex A53 offers no advantage in terms of speed, but according to ARM is he more economical: processors can deliver the same performance as smartphones now, but that core questions include three-quarters less of the battery.

In addition, Samsung relies increasingly on its own Exynos processors in smartphones. Where the first Galaxy S and Galaxy Note models in the Netherlands with Exynos processors came out, the Dutch version of the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 with hardware from Qualcomm. When Qualcomm, which like Apple makes its own core for processors to upgrade to the 64bit ARMv8 instruction, is unclear.
