Google 64-bit to come at Google I/O

Written by Fuad Abazovic

June 25th 2014

We have found out that Android is finally going to get 64-bit support and it looks like it will happen in June at the Google IO conference. We don’t know the name of the new version, people do suggest it might be Android 4.5 but we believe that this huge step up might end up called Android 5.0.

Companies like Intel got creative and in order to test what is to come with 64-bit they have compiled a 64-bit kernel in Kit Kat 4.4.2 and got some speed up in selected applications. The rest are waiting for 64-bit support from Google and Qualcomm for example has three 64-bit chips that work as both 32-bit and 64-bit parts. Now we need an OS to support them, and some extra testing of course.

The 64-bit versions of Windows have been out for quite a while and they are used in tablets as well. Intel can now support 64-bit operating systems with Bay Trail processors, as the drivers are finally there, Apple has a 64-bit chip and OS, but some devices Galaxy S5 that should last from April 2014 until at least late Q1 2015 just launched with 2GB of memory and 32-bit parts.

The real 64-bit push is expected in 2015 when it comes to Android with some early adopters getting designs out in the second half of 2014.
