Samsung Experience Store - Maribyrnong

How good are rumours? They give us something to dream about while we wait for devices (*cough*Nexus 5*cough*) to launch. In the rumourmill today are some tidbits about the Galaxy S5; it may be a good 6 months off, but that hasn’t stopped Korean media from reporting that Samsung will aim to put 4GB of RAM into the device along with their upcoming 64-bit Exynos SoC.

From the (badly) translated Korean website, Samsung looks to be putting 4GB of RAM into the Galaxy S5 purely to show that it can, and because 64-bit SoCs can support that amount. So the specs-pissing contest will continue for some time to come. Let’s just hope they use a better display in the S5 than they have in the S4.

Because everyone needs x64 on their phone :/ … It’s getting out of control. That money would be better spent on improving display, battery or storage technology, surely…4GB and x64 processor is insanely overkill and just going to chew the battery…

And then again, even with the 4GB of Ram And a 64bit processor what’s to say that the 4.4 Kitkat isn’t 64 bit capable on top of the fragmentation of applications in the Play Store

I hope this doesn’t give Samsung the green light to further add more bulk to their Touchwiz…

Yeah. Probably. As good a guess as any.

“4GB of RAM” Geez, that’s a little excessive. One wonders how the battery life will hold up.

Ram won’t effect the battery life.

Keeping RAM low oh a device is easy when it doesn’t do much in the first place. The lack of customisation means they can trim the OS to a minimum RAM requirement. Also they buy their RAM, Samsung makes their own so much cheaper.
