So far, Apple was the only tech brand who were manufacturing 64-bit SoC CPU integrated devices. Android hardware makers have been craving to have one, but so far none of the OEMs ever used it.
However, going by the latest report, it looks like, Samsung might use the tech soon, that too, along with the Snapdragon 410. As spotted on GFXbench, Samsung is testing its first smartphone running a 64-bit CPU, with a model number SM-G510F, and the processor is reportedly a chipset from Qualcomm dubbed the Snapdragon 410 CPU.
But on the contrary, the fact that the same device is using Adreno 306 GPU makes the things pretty clear. While, the listing doesn't reveal the CPU quality but it does mention that it is a quad core unit. The heart of the matter is that this particular GPU is the only one used in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, the first 64-bit chip in the Snapdragon series.
The chipset is not too much of a high-end but rather a high-range one. Thus the handset with the model number SM-G510F will likely be a 64-bit mid-range handset with a decent rather than high-end specs.
Following the reports, the handset would feature a 4.8-inch display offering a resolution of 960×540pixels and 1GB of RAM. There would also be 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 or later version.
If pricing is what bothers you the most, than according to the import/export tracking site Zauba, the handset was listed at Rs. 9,067. Availability could be expected around July, or maybe August 2014.
