Samsung Galaxy Note 4: Specifications

It’s almost a certainty that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will come with a 64-bit processor.

We know that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will definitely come with a 64-bit processor. Speaking to Korea Times, Samsung’s co-CEO Shin Jong-Kyun promised the company will match the processor found in Apple’s new iPhone 5S.

And recently Samsung confirmed that it is working on 64-bit processors for its 2014 handsets - although the company stopped short of actually announcing which handsets they were. That said, it’s not a stretch to guess that means the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 4.

Stephen Woo, president of Systems SI at Samsung electronics told CNET that the company is taking a “two-step approach” to developing 64-bit chips.

According to Woo, the firm is planning on developing a 64-bit chip based on designs from ARM. Once it has mastered that technology, it will design its own chip. It is believed it will be the latter chip that ends up in both of Samsung’s 2014 flagships smartphones.

“We are marching on schedule,” Woo said Wednesday. “We will offer the first 64-bit [processor] based on ARM’s own core. After that, we will offer an even more optimised 64-bit [processor] based on our own optimisations."
