As the majority of our readers should be aware of, Apple’s A7 processor is the first mobile SoC to have adopted the 64-bit architecture. While this doesn’t offer a ton of benefits at this point in time, it’s still quite an achievement, and with the passage of time, you can be certain that more smartphones will feature 64-bit processors under the hood.
Given the fact that Samsung has been the one to manufacture the A7 processor, and also because Sammy has enough resources to heavily invest in R&D, there have been several reports suggesting that the Korean tech giant is already working on a 64-bit Exynos processor of its own. These rumors have started surfacing since last year, but there haven’t been any concrete bits of evidence to support these theories. Not until now.
