Hot on the heels of the announcement of Apple's iPhone 5s, which sports a fancy new 64-bit A7 CPU, Samsung boss JK Shin has told the Korean press that its future handsets will also include 64-bit number-crunching capabilities. Speaking with the Korea Times, the Samsung co-CEO confirmed that "our next smartphones will have 64-bit processing functionality," but added that these devices would not be arriving "in the shortest time." It's no secret that mobile chip giant ARM has 64-bit architectures in the pipeline, so it's possible that a Galaxy S5 might be one of the first Android devices to implement this technology.
In the same interview, Shin acknowledged that Apple was seeking to expand its mobile reach further into China and Japan with the iPhone 5s and 5c, saying that Samsung too should "try harder" in these countries. These efforts reportedly include a separate Chinese launch event for the upcoming Galaxy Note 3.
