A Samsung Electronics executive said Wednesday the firm will expand its smartphone business in China to better compete with Apple in the world's largest smartphone market.
"Samsung understands that Apple intends to boost its mobile business in China, as well as in Japan, meaning that we should try harder in these countries," Samsung's mobile business chief Shin Jong-kyun said.
This announcement follows hot on the heels of Apple's recent event that brought us the iPhone 5S with a 64-bit CPU. But while Apple did optimize the iOS 7 for 64-bit processors, Android OS is yet to support such thing.
The 64-bit CPUs are a must-have for devices with 4GB or more RAM and there is a chance Android 4.4 KitKat brings 64-bit support. There is also a probability Samsung unveils a flagship with 4GB of RAM next year, since the Note 3 already has 3GB.

Samsung prepping two new 64-bit Exynos processors for CES 2014, Samsung is going to hold an Exynos-related press conference at CES on January 7 in Las Vegas, and it's expected to unveil two new processors, both of these will be octa-core, and both will be 64-bit, a move that sees Samsung once again closely follow tech trends imposed by Apple's first 64-bit smartphone few months ago.
Thehttps://news.mydrivers.com/1/287/287960.htm Exynos 6 chipset will be based on ARM's Cortex-A50 architecture. It'll have four Cortex-A57 performance-focused cores, and 4 Cortex-A53 battery-friendly cores. Clearly, these should energy up and lower (and increase and lower) when needed, with respect to the current workload.
The Exynos S chipset uses Samsung's own core designs, and also the only thing we all know about this yet is it too is going to be 64-bit. It might be octa-core too, however that info hasn't been leaked yet.
The interesting part is the fact that based on MyDrivers, the Exynos 6 will outshine the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with a factor of just one.53x. The Exynos S is a little behind, however it too will have the ability to be 1.43x faster than Qualcomm's best.
