Report: Samsung Galaxy S5 to have 4GB of RAM along with 64-bit processor

More rumors are cropping up about the 64-bit Exynos processor that Samsung is expected to debut with the Galaxy S5. According to a new report by the Korean media, the 64-bit processor, the first of Samsung’s Exynos 6 series of chipsets, will be accompanied by 4GB of RAM, making use of one of the biggest advantages of 64-bit processing support.

Samsung has already beaten other manufacturers by being the first to use 3GB of RAM (on the Galaxy Note 3), and 4GB of RAM would be the next logical step. Personally, I hope that the Galaxy S5 does have 4GB of RAM, as 3GB of RAM hasn’t exactly provided the boost in multitasking I thought it would on the Note 3, all thanks to all the unnecessary stuff TouchWiz and Samsung’s add-on features keep running in the background, so another gig of RAM would go a long way towards actually showing some advantages of having more memory than normal.

yes, and there is a logic in this… why S5 will need 4 GB? in order to increase power consumption? even 3 GB are more than enough for S5, Note 4 will require may be more because of additional s-pen features

They will stay with 3GB 100%.
They will upgrade to 4GB in the Galaxy Note 4.
The Galaxy S5 will have 3GB (like they did in previous models: Note 1GB; S3 1GB; Note 2 2GB, S4 2GB; Note 3 GB; logical step: S5 3GB; Note 4 4GB ….)
Always the Note series gets the higher RAM.

Whats the point of such specs if OS is not optimized? That is the only reason why Android with all those PC-like specs still lags. WP with 512Mb RAM works faster than Android with 3Gb.

you are comparing the wrong things. Android+touchwiz layer is laggy indeed. But stock android (or a Rom like cyanogenmod/AOKP/ParanoidAndroid) works smoother than a baby’s butt. The Nexus s has only 512MB Ram, but it still runs JB 4.1.1 smoothly.

If only samsung would release the proper sources. Than i would definetly use a custom rom.

it doesn’t matter even if Samsung gonna implement 6GB of RAM on its flagship. somehow, there will be more extra features they bring onto the system and in the end, there will be only 500MB of RAM free of the users.

I don’t think that.
Samsung won’t use a 4GB RAM on Galaxy S5.
Becouse there are not any competitors with 3GB of RAM (except Note 3).
So Samsung won’t use it.
There is no competitor.

Does that make any sense to you??? ‘They won’t do it because there is no competitor’, doesn’t name any sense to me. This isn’t about catch up, Samsung know that to stay on top they HAVE TO bring 4GB RAM 1st and doing that with the GS5 will set them apart from every other competitor.

I’ve got a feeling some manufactures won’t be able to get 4GB RAM and will stick with 2GB, this will help Samsung differentiate themselves very well, it’s like when 1GB RAM came in, many 2011 flagships still came with 512mb RAM and 768mb RAM, the GS2 came with 1GB and blew them away and skyrocketed Samsung to the top.

You will also have to take into account the fact that 64-bit code takes up more space (both RAM and storage) than a 32-bit equivalent.

The extra 1GB will be needed therefore to allow for some headroom, once the OS and Touchwiz have expanded into the space available.

Amen to that! Samsung has no intentions of sitting around waiting for the competition to catch up!
