With Apple having taken the smartphone world by storm by introducing a 64-bit processor in its latest iPhone, Android manufacturers are no doubt looking at launching their own 64-bit phones as soon as possible. Samsung has said that it is working on bringing 64-bit phones to market, and the first 64-bit phone in the company’s lineup may just have made an appearance on GFXBench with model number SM-G510F. Surprisingly, this device isn’t using an 64-bit Exynos chip, which Samsung has said will be ready later this year, but the Snapdragon 410 from Qualcomm.

The fact that it’s a 64-bit CPU isn’t mentioned, but the Adreno 306 GPU listed in the benchmark leaves no doubt, as the only processor to sport that GPU is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, the first 64-bit chip in the Snapdragon series. Since the chipset itself is a mid-range chip, it’s not surprising that other specs of the SM-G510F are similarly modest – a 4.8-inch 960×540 display, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera, and 8GB of internal storage. The processor itself has four cores, each clocked at 1.2GHz, and the phone is running Android 4.4.2 KitKat, as one would expect.

According to SM-G510F’s listing on import tracking site Zauba, the handset is priced at around $150 (Rs. 9,067), though it will likely be priced considerably higher once it hits markets. It remains to be seen when it will go up for sale – Android doesn’t officially support 64-bit processing at the moment, but with the Snapdragon 410 supposed to be ready for mass production since the second half of this year, it probably won’t be long before the SM-G510F makes an official appearance.
