Samsung says that next smartphones will feature 64-bit processors

It's no secret that Samsung does not like being shown up by Apple, and is also no secret that Samsung wishes to be the largest mobile device manufacturer in the world. At the Apple iPhone unveiling earlier this week, it was announced that the new A7 processor was the first mobile CPU to feature 64-bit architecture.




This has apparently ruffled some feathers at Samsung, as the company's mobile business chief JK Shin told the Korean Times that Samsung's next-generation smartphones will feature 64-bit processors. This means that Samsung's next-generation Galaxy S5 will most likely feature a 64-bit SoC. Unfortunately at the moment there's not much out in the mobile market that will utilize 64-bit coding, but I guess we have to start somewhere and now seems like as good a time as any.
