Samsung Galaxy S5 to feature a 64-bit processor

As many of you likely know Apple this week launched their new flagship smartphone,the iPhone 5S. As the first smartphone to feature a 64-bit processor it’s essentially the only smartphone right now with a desktop-class architecture. As Apple tells it, the new iPhone is 56 times faster than its predecessor.

I am sure plenty of Android fans, myself included, are jealous right now because it’s a “first” in the industry. Worry not because Samsung is already on the job.

During an interview with Korea Times, Samsung’s mobile business chief Shin Jong-Kyun said:

“Not in the shortest time. But yes, our next smartphones will have 64-bit processing functionality”.

Hopefully, we will see the Samsung Galaxy S5 with a 64-bit processor, an aluminium body and a powerful 16-MP camera. We will probably see it next year, hopefully at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona or at an Unpacked event in Spring 2014.

Kik Brings Smartphone to Smartphone Messaging to Android

It doesn’t take much for scrutiny to fall onto Android. One of the problems with rocketing to the top is that we always have little features from other groups being seen as a negative. Most of the time it’s a joke. However, for some, features like RIM’s BlackBerry Messenger is a serious thing to lose. There have been a few responses to BBM in Android, but none quite as efficient and functional as the latest update of KIK messenger for Android.
