Samsung Galaxy S5 feature 64-bit processor is on the final stage of production, according to Korean news media Daum, reports Android Authority.
The report said that the processor will be adopted in the "next smartphone-tablet." Due to language barrier, it is unclear whether the 64-bit processor will come to "upcoming smartphones and tablets" or to a smartphone-tablet hybrid or a phablet.
Apple recently revealed 64-bit processors in the new iPhone 5S. Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 packed two quad core processors to maximise and reinforce the functions of the smartphones.
However, Samsung assured spec-hungry consumers that its devices are not too far behind in terms of processor. Samsung's CEO, JK Shin, said that the company will bring 64-bit processors to the market next year but cautions that this may not come "in the shortest time." Android Authority, thus, speculates that Samsung may feature the new processor on the Note 4 rather than the Galaxy S5.
The same report also claimed that Android OS will support 64-bit processors next year as well. The presentation from Intel's Developer Forum event last week suggested that Android 4.4. KitKat will support such processor.
According to rumours, aside from 64-bit processor, Samsung Galaxy S5 features will include a larger screen display that will use Sharp's new IGZO screen technology. The device will also include 4K resolution that will allow users to play videos beyond Full HD resolution.
Moreover, the Samsung Galaxy S5 will come with Android 4.4 KitKat that is set to debut in October. Other reports claimed that it will boot Samsung's own Tizen OS, as the company is working to develop its own operating system.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 release date is rumoured to happen in March next year, marking the first birthday of the Galaxy S4. Reports also said that this may coincide with the iPhone 6 launch.
