The only thing with Samsung's "me too" that they're at the mercy of Android and 3rd party apps using 64 bit.

Apple on the other hand can actually tout it as a feature since iOS7 will be 64 bit and all the 1st party apps will be 64 bit. Apple with such a vicegrip over their app store will probably push for 64 bit a lot harder than what google can ever do as well.

Obviously; it's the natural progression of things. Just like when in 2004-ish? AMD pushed x64 computing as well. We hadn't really hit the cap in terms of RAM (most desktops were 1-2gb at the time), but it was time to start the switch.

Also, you guys DO know that tech companies don't announce things the day they think of them, right? It's not like Samsung saw Apple's announcement yesterday and said "Yea, let's do that". As below states, they've been working on the tech for a long while, then they announced it once it was at a state were it was viable/stable.

Dead on! When I use a phone, I want it to have a distinct feel of heft and balance. I want it to have well-machined curves and clean straight lines, with just a hint of metal that says "These contents are secure."

In short, I want my phone to have all the grace and ergonomics of a warm can of sardines.

PS, a few years ago, the government was doing research into kinetic projectiles as a defense against missiles. Here's what happens when a cheap polycarbonate (like Samsung uses on the GS sets) runs into a proper material like aluminum:

Let's be fair. Everyone knew 64-bit CPUs were coming to smart phones eventually. The only difference was when Apple decided to make that switch versus when Samsung or anyone else would decide to. Furthermore, they're all looking at essentially the same set of user demands so it isn't surprising that multiple companies would all decide to transition within one or two product generations of each other regardless of when any specific competitor chose to do so.

Oh look a high velocity projectile I wonder what happens when they use AL ones? http://www.liveleak.com/ll_embed?f=8a9ea713a44f

Typical thread derailment on OCN.

Any who, bring on the 64 bit for everyone!

Despite your sarcasm, you're completely right about Samsung. Granted the Atrix had the fingerprint scanner but by all accounts, it was poorly implemented and garbage. Naturally Apple comes along and vastly improves the technology and makes it more accessible, just like they do with pretty much everything they release.

Apple hasn't released cheaper versions of their hardware. iPhone 5C is not the so-called cheap iphone analysts were clamoring for. It's a repackaged iPhone 5 in color, that's it. It's still quite expensive.

It's not surprising Samsung will continue to ride Apple's coattails. They did it with Motorola and the original Razr flip phone, with RIM and the Blackberry, and with Apple's iPhone.

AFAIK, samsung has a working implementation of ARM v7 (32-bit) along with propietary GPU IP ready to go for 2014. They have been working on a 64-bit CPU for microservers at their texas research facility as well.
