Not to be outdone by Apple’s 64-bit CPU inside the iPhone 5s, Samsung is looking to power its next-gen flagship device, the Galaxy S5, with an Exynos 64-bit SoC of their own. Korean media is reporting that Samsung have completed the “most complex tasks of the development process and is now dealing with technicalities and logistics.” This is positive news as Samsung previously didn’t believe they’d have the SoC ready in time for the Galaxy S5.
As for Android’s support for 64-bit chips, KitKat is likely to have all the needed changes to ensure they work flawlessly with any 64-bit processors used in future devices. Now we just sit and wait for the release for both the Galaxy S5 or Note 4, and Android KitKat. No rush.
