Samsung’s 64-bit Exynos processor said to be in final stages of development

Samsung is reportedly in the final stages of development of its 64-bit Exynos processor, according to a report published by the Korean media. Samsung had officially stated that its future smartphones would use a 64-bit chipset, and according to the report, some of Samsung’s tablets will be powered by the new CPU as well. It will once again be an octa-core chipset, but this time with four high-performance Cortex-A57 cores and equal number of energy-efficient Cortex-A53 cores (and likely with true eight-core processing).

While Apple touts the iPhone 5s and iOS 7 as being the world’s first to support 64-bit processing, Android has, in fact, been ready for 64-bit processing since its inception, thanks to its Linux underpinnings (if you’ve been wondering why 64-bit functionality is being brought to mobile devices, you really should read up on AnandTech’s extremely detailed review of the iPhone 5s). Only the necessary hardware to make use of 64-bit has been missing, and Samsung is no doubt hoping to be the first to offer that hardware, most likely with the Galaxy S5.

Hey Samsung, why not push the envelope even further, thereby giving your devices some extended time on top, Like with S2.
It was one of the fastest phones with some of the best features for quite a while, before other manufacturers started catching up.

So wait till April, get it right and give us something that stands out, and stands out for a little while longer…

4gb RAM,
2.3 – 2.5ghz A57 processors (A50 cores should be running at 1.5 at least)
3000mAh battery with some kind of tech that makes it last longer.
1080P screen that lasts longer, is brighter and uses less power. (keep it at 5 inches though.
at least 32gb of storage, with micro sd slot)
16mpx cam or 13 mpx with OIS and improved sensor.
Moto X like always on feature. (that would really be usefull)

something like that…

No micro SD the patented V-NAND flash storage at around 128GB up to 480GB, also the 20.3mp sensor, 4GB LPDDR3 RAM OIS camera, this would be a super phone

what I think about the Galaxy S5:
Display: 5.2 inch, QHD Super Amoled
CPU: True Octa-core 64-bit processor @ +2 GHz
RAM: 4 Gb
GPU: ?
probably with a metal or carbon fiber body :D

What about the camera and Touch ID? As Xperia Z1 have 20.7 Mega Pixel camera and iphone 5S have Touch ID feature.

And when we thought benchmark scores couldn’t get any higher.. Although I’m going to really be envious of the new batch of smartphone owners with their ARMv8 super efficient and powerful 64-bit chips, I can’t wait to see what manufacturers including Samsung are going to unveil..

Eventually, Samsung & ARM may announce it next year at CES 2014.
