Qualcomm to debut the first multi-core 64-bit processor in a smartphone at IFA 2014


The king of Android processors, Qualcomm, is expected to debut their first Snapdragon multi-core 64-bit processor at IFA 2014 in a new smartphone. Snapdragon has long been the go-to processor for phone manufacturers sporting Android operating systems, but they have been behind the curve by not making the jump to 64-bit processors.

That is changing with Android L, because it is expected to support 64-bit architecture. Previous versions of Android weren’t compatible 64-bit processors, so there was no need to send it out on devices yet, The tweet sent out can be seen below.
