Samsung Galaxy S5 to sport 64-bit processor and 4GB of RAM?

Samsung Galaxy S5 concept

The next flagship smartphone to come from Samsung is likely to be the Samsung Galaxy S5. Expected as early as January, the rumours have been floating about since late summer and show no sign of slowing down. The latest one comes from South Korea’s Digital Times. They report that the Galaxy S5 will come with a 64-bit processor (we’ve heard that before) along with a whopping 4GB of RAM.

The report suggests that the new 64-bit processor is almost ready to go into production. It is expected to continue to use ARM’s big.LITTLE octa-core architecture, this time with Cortex A57 and Cortex A53 as the big and LITTLE cores respectively. This new processor could launch as the Exynos 5430 or perhaps as the first in a new Exynos 6 series.

The report also indicates that the Galaxy S5 will come with 4GB of RAM. The most we have seen so far is 3GB in the Galaxy Note 3 so Samsung could well throw in an “extra” 1GB of RAM to give its next Galaxy S flagship the bragging rights.

Past rumours have also suggested that the Galaxy S5 will use a faux-leather finish similar to that of the Galaxy Note 3 and a 16MP camera with OIS.

All could be revealed as early as January, perhaps at CES 2014 although a dedicated Samsung Unpacked event is more likely.
