Samsung Pledges 64-Bit Chips in its Next-Gen Smartphones
After Apple’s announcement informing the public that the A7 chip in its iPhone 5S will be the first 64-bit smartphone processor on the market, Samsung quickly revealed that its next-gen Galaxy handsets will also be going 64-bit. Samsung co-CEO Shin Jong-kyun spoke with The Korea Times about his company’s future plans revealing that the upcoming Galaxy-branded handsets will be adding 64-bit processing. The company’s current flagship Galaxy S4 and the recently announced Galaxy Note 3 are running 32-bit processors for those of you who weren’t aware.
No specific timeline was given for its 64-bit debut, but the South Korean company typically releases one new Galaxy S and one new Galaxy Note handset per year. That being the case, it’s possible that Samsung may not have a 64-bit smartphone on the market until 2014. Shin mentioned the following regarding the matter:
Not in the shortest time, but yes, our next smartphones will have 64-bit processing functionality.
Many Samsung critics have contended that the company follows Apple’s lead in technology rather than innovating with its own new features and capabilities. Apple agrees and is embroiled in a number of patent infringement suits against its rival, accusing the company of copying popular products like the iPhone, iPad and iOS platform.
How do you feel about the situation?

I said it earlier but expect the S5 (ironic) to have the 64bit chip & touch ID.

Apple announces burst mode. Apple announces slow-mo video. Apple announces best face.
Yeah, Samsung is the only one copying.

Samsung manufactures the a7 so they probably knew about it from the beggining. The probably had an NDA that didn't allow them to speak of 64 bit arch in future models until the unveiling of 5s.

I'm surprised it took this long to switch to 64-bit. Samsung, Qualcomm, and Apple have had the 64-bit instruction set from ARM since 2011. Android doesn't support 64-bit yet anyways. Releasing a phone with a 64-but CPU would have done no-one any good. Apple owns the phone and the OS so they were able to recode everything for 64-bit before Google got around to doing it. It'll still take a while for everyone to make good use if it. Not like any phone has used more than 4GB yet either (yet is the keyword).

About 95% of mobile phones use ARM instruction sets, so ARMv8->get 64 bit. So I agree with naz94

Didn't see this coming.
This is going to be so horrible and fragged on Android. *Sighs* Come on, Samsung.

I'd like to repost... from an earlier thread... Couldn't resist!
*Somewhere in Korea... North maybe!* :P
Okay... now that Apple will release the 5S on the 20th... lets go get one.
*sends someone to stand in the queue till the 20th... without food supplies... (that how they roll in the North! Not referring to 'A Game of Thrones')* :P
Once we have the super-awesome Apple tech, we shall tear it apart (but we will insure the 5S because we are cheap and have lost a lot of money to Apple in lawsuits).
Then we extract the sensor and the 64 bit Processor too... make some fag**ts study it day in and day out... 6 months on and we shall have our brand new "innovation"... Samsuck fingerprint sucker and 64 bit sucking processor! Ready for release!! Woohooo!!
Of course... we shall take precautions... if caught, we have devised a secret cyanide pill compartment in your Samsuck "smart"-phones.. use them well! (That's the only useful thing inside Samsung phones) No one gets caught! Else we'll have a lawsuit on our heads and you will have to bend over again!
