A mysterious 5” Samsung device with a 64-bit Snapdragon SoC aboard gets spotted

Samsung logoBy this time, we can safely say that most of the major smartphone makers have at least one device with a 64-bit SoC in the pipeline. Apple was first with the iPhone 5s last year, but Google's Android L will pave the way for 64-bit phones later in 2014 as well. In fact, HTC might be the first maker to announce such an Android phone pretty soon. Nevertheless, the largest and still not dethroned king of the industry, Samsung, is surely prepping a miscellaneous slew of such devices, and one of the mid-ranged ones might be the SM-G530, two user agents of which just got caught in the wild at Zauba.

The SM-G530 appears to be somewhat "related" to some other 64-bit Samsung devices that we heard about over the past few months - the SM-G5308W/SM-G8508S and SM-G510F in a way. The first of its versions, the SM-G530F, one is a single-SIM one, whereas the second variation of the phone, the SM-G530H, can be fitted with two SIM cards. As per the user agent profile, a representative of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 61x family of 64-bit processors is making both versions of the mysterious Samsung SM-G530 handset click and tick at 1.2GHz. This SoC comprises of undefined number of Cortex-A53 ARMv8 cores. The Cortex-A53 is not only more powerful, it also goes easy on your battery.


The other hardware specs of the SM-G530 are underwhelming, just what one would expect from an upper entry-level or a lower-placed mid-range device. We might be dealing with a 5-inch display, the resolution of which is 540x960 pixels and some 512MB of RAM in store. The OS of choice is Android 4.4.4, and if such a device gets released, it would certainly receive the upcoming 64-bit version of Android at some point.
