Samsung: Our Next-Gen Phones WIll Have 64-Bit Processors, Too

Not to be outdone by Apple, Samsung has swiftly reacted to the announcement of Cook & Co.’s new 64-bit A7 processor by announcing that its next slew of phones will pack similar silicon, thank you very much.

Speaking to the Korea Times, Samsung’s mobile business head JK Shin has explained that the company’s future phones would also be 64-bit. He stated that such devices would arrive “not in the shortest time,” but that its “next smartphones will have 64-bit processing capability.”

It’s not surprising given how intimately involved Samsung is with things silicon and Apple, though it remains unclear when — and which phone — will feature the jump in processing capability. Bets must surely be on the Galaxy S5, though. [Korea Times via Engadget]
