Samsung Galaxy S5 to run 4GB of RAM?

Latest Samsung Galaxy S5 rumours have suggested the upcoming phone will benefit from a whopping 4GB of RAM alongside the much mooted 64-bit processor.

According to the latest reports out of Samsung’s native South Korea, the widely expected Samsung Galaxy S5 will land with an unparalleled 4GB of RAM, up on the 3GB of memory within the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the 2GB of RAM found in most other flagship smartphones.

Suggesting the Samsung Galaxy S5 release date will launch “in the first half of next year,” the Korean tipsters have hinted that the iPhone 5S mimicking 64-bit processor recently confirmed by Samsung executives will allow the phone to support larger RAM chips.

A tough translation of the Korean reports states: “The Apple iPhone 5S applies 64-bit AP but with 1GB of RAM. 64-bit on Samsung Galaxy S5 AP 4GB of RAM.”

Claiming that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will “feed the fires of competition” within the smartphone sector, forcing rival manufacturers to follow suit, they added: “The Galaxy S5 is equipped with 4GB of RAM to 4GB if the first smartphone that will write history.”

Adding further backing to the claims, the reports have cited an “industry official” as stating: “The 4GB of RAM for 64-bit hardware specifications [will make] the strongest existing smart phones.” They reported added the S5 will “level up hardware specifications of the smartphone at one point to be the best on the market.”

While Samsung has yet to acknowledge the existence of the future phone, a range of Samsung Galaxy S5 rumours have already hit the web, with a remodelled metal design tipped for inclusion alongside a speedier CPU, improved camera optics and the newly launched Android 4.4 KitKat operating system.

In a recent interview Samsung’s CEO of Mobile, Shin Jong-Kyun stated: “Our next smartphones will have 64-bit processing functionality.”
