Following Apple's announcement of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, Samsung has announced that it plans to release a smartphone with a 64-bit processor and expand its business in China, reports the KoreaTimes. Samsung’s mobile business chief Shin Jong-kyun made the comments at a weekly meeting with chief executives of Samsung’s key affiliates in Seocho-dong, southern Seoul.

“Samsung understands that Apple intends to boost its mobile business in China, as well as in Japan, meaning that we should try harder in these countries,” Shin said.

“Apple believes that it can boost its market share in China thanks to stronger brand awareness. However, with better pricing, a diversified product lineup and solid partnerships with local channels, Samsung plans to keep its current momentum in China. We have no reason to allow Apple to steal market share from us,” said one low-ranking industry executive.

Samsung is top smartphone seller in China with 19.4% of the market. Apple has 4.3% of the market.

Shin also confirmed that Samsung would be releasing a smartphone with a 64-bit processor.

“Not in the shortest time. But yes, our next smartphones will have 64-bit processing functionality,” Shin said.

LOL, they want everything Apple did. They don't even have their own OS to develop a 64bit device.

Samsung isn't trying to copy Apple. No, it's trying to follow Apple. Samsung is saving time and money by following Apple's lead, always trying to offer a cheaper alternative. They will dominate as Toyota for cars, but Apple will be the Ferrari. And I say this in terms of marketing and placement strategy.

Thats don't make any difference,the thing about having a processor with 64-bit its that the OS, apps and kernel have the chance to take advantage of it, but thats not going to happen with samsung cuz they don't have there own OS, it means that even if the put a 64-bit it will be for nothing until Android its update to 64-bit... its all marketing to sell more phones you know...
